The luxurious five-star Apricot Hotel, adorned with original Vietnamese artworks and dubbed a gateway to the nation’s art and culture, will usher in the upcoming Lunar New Year with an event at its new rooftop terrace bar.

Situated in the heart of Vietnam’s political and cultural capital on the threshold of the quaint Old Quarter, Apricot Hotel unveiled a collection of venues including its One 36 bar – aptly named after the property’s address 136 Hang Trong Street – as part of its December 2015 grand opening.

On Sunday February 7, Vietnamese New Year’s Eve, One 36 will host ‘Fire Up The Night’, offering a sweeping prospect of Hoan Kiem Lake and Hanoi’s skyline beyond replete with a spectacular fireworks display.

“At One 36, a sophisticated new nightspot offering undoubtedly the best vista of Hanoi, we will literally fire up the night to a backdrop of fireworks in celebration of the biggest event on Vietnam’s calendar, Tet,” said Apricot Hotel spokeswoman Phuong Nam Nguyen. “Home to myriad original artworks from the master painters through to the contemporaries, Apricot Hotel is the perfect spot to absorb the spirit of Hanoi and Vietnam.”

Tet is the most important celebration in Vietnamese culture, marking the arrival of Spring as the Vietnamese practice an array of customs including cooking special food, ancestor worship and giving lucky money to children and the elderly.

To add a traditional touch to the occasion, Apricot Hotel will distribute lucky red envelopes to guests during the Tet holiday.

In addition to the rooftop terrace bar, the 123-room Apricot Hotel also boasts a multi-level basement theatre called Avanti featuring a stage hovering between two floors, its signature restaurant “Palette” serving Southeast Asian fare and “L’Artiste” restaurant with an open-style kitchen.

Apricot will stage Fire Up the Night on Sunday February 7. Tickets are priced at VND 580,000 [USD 25.85]. Guests will receive a complimentary cocktail or glass of wine.
