Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and Empire Centre, two destinations famous for their gourmet eateries with alfresco seating by Sino Group, are gearing up to bring a full lineup of festive cheer to Tsim Sha Tsui this holiday season. At the heart of the offerings is an array of drinking and dining offerings across the many restaurants in the two centers.
Rounding out their festive offerings, Sino Group will deck out the facades of both Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and Empire Centre with a thrilling, dynamic light show and animation. Through January 1 2021, both centers will feature a 4,000sqm multimedia wall made up of 82,000 technicolored LED lights, making this the biggest screen of its kind on the waterfront.
From 6pm-11pm each day, the screen will show a range of animations and moving pictures, adding a dynamic touch to the seasonal displays along the Hong Kong skyline. Sino Group will also be putting up a chromatic skylight on Mody Lane to provide a romantic photo shoot against the backdrop of the spectacular nighttime skyline.

All the exciting restaurants at Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and Empire Centre are bringing Christmas cheer to Hong Kong with a series of decadent seasonal menus. And, diners will be able to enjoy these epic feasts and the lovely weather by dining outdoors – many restaurants here have alfresco seating available!
To add a little extra seasonal cheer, diners will also receive a $100 dining coupon for every $500 they spend at a participating F&B outlet at Tsim Sha Tsui Centre or Empire Centre! Simply enjoy a meal before January 3 2021 and pay using an electronic method, and you can claim your coupon on the same day. The best part? You can rack up that $500 across two outlets, so you can try several places while you get your dining voucher. However, each person will only be able to redeem a maximum of two dining coupons each day.
