Happy 50th Birthday MO HK!
Fifty years ago today, the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong officially opened its doors. More than any other hotel in the world, The Mandarin is very much part of local life whether it’s businessmen drinking from silver tankards in the Captain’s Bar, tai tais lunching in Cafe Causette or families enjoying the evening buffet in the Clipper Lounge.
The hotel’s wonderfully named Button Supper Club, The Lookout cocktail bar and the Sirloin & Saddle restaurant are no more but The Chinnery is still going strong – and amusingly only did away with its men only policy as recently as 1990. Chopstix will be raising a glass there today safe in the knowledge that Billy and his team will have our favourite tipple on stand by. Chin Chin!
