Party-goers were still nursing hangovers as they sipped free-flowing champagne at the Bacchanalia Brunch in Central's Gaia restaurant.

About 250 guests, including model Ankie Beilke and photographer Sean Lee Davies, attended Saturday's inaugural Hong Kong session of the infamous daytime party series initiated in Singapore by Sunil, Raj and Ravi Datwani, and Alex Chew.

The Bacchanalia team, who don't believe that revelry ends at sunrise, launched the daytime party series. At the first Hong Kong session, Gaia's chefs prepared a three-course menu, plus desserts, to fortify the crowd for an afternoon of drinking.

More than 130 bottles of Moet & Chandon champagne and plenty of Belvedere Vodka shots were downed at the marathon brunch, which ran from noon until 6pm. DJs from Hong Kong and Singapore turned the heat up a notch.

The next local brunch party is on December 15. Check for details.
