The Hof Downtown (Invited)

Friday, November 17, 2017 Sharon Halim 0 Comments

The re-opening of the Hof Downtown was pretty extravagant, all guests that came were dressing up in pretty dresses and nice suits. The place was pretty crowded, with many were already holding glass of champagne (welcoming drink) and a queue to the photobooth.

The photobooth was small but really cute with lots of big sized pretzels hung on a board as the background. The guest could then take and eat the pretzel after they took photos. The host for the evening event was Lee Chan, an Australian-born foodie that made it to the grand final of My Kitchen Rules in 2011 and has gone on to host her own cooking show on National Geographic Asia named ‘Lee Chan’s World Food Tour’.

The waitresses were bringing out trays of champagne and white wine and offered them to the guests around the place. Music were played by DJ on the second floor, however the access for the guests at the moment was only limited on the first floor. They started to serve the dishes on trays by 7:30 pm. They were finger-food in contemporary style but very tasty. The dishes were brought out from the kitchen that was located at the back of the first floor. There is also a large bar on the first floor, with lots of staffs attending it since there were so many guests ordering drinks at the event.

Besides the bar, the place also has big windows that bring in the natural light, high ceiling with chandeliers hung, and outdoor seating area. The design of Hof Down Town is also contemporary, mixed between elegant vintage and modern sophisticated. I love the atmosphere of the place, but I really couldn’t tell because it was an event and also a standing one. When the tables are set and they operate as usual, there will probably some differences in guest experience. Though for the night, my overall experience at Hof Downtown was okay. The location is great and the staffs were nice.
