The grande dame of Hong Kong hotels has had a little nip and tuck recently including the presidential show piece: The Peninsula Suite.
2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s SAR so expect an even more fireworks than usual (ahem). The celebrations start at 8pm on July 1st so make sure you have your hotel room and restaurant booked. These are our three top spots – all on the Kowloon side for optimum viewing:
If you’re in Hong Kong on January 29th make sure you have a room with a view – of Victoria Harbour for the Chinese New Year fireworks. Here’s our lucky number eight for firework dinners:
View of the fireworks in the harbour from the Intercontinental hotel
The Interconti is perched right on the harbour’s edge so many of the guest rooms have fantastic views as well as the Harbourside restaurant and Nobu if you can bag a window table. Both restaurants are offering a Chinese New Year Fireworks Dinner Menu.
If you’re in Hong Kong for October 1st make sure you have a room with a view – of Victoria Harbour for the National Day fireworks.
The Interconti is perched right on the harbour’s edge giving it some fantastic views from many of its guests rooms where you feel you’re right on the water and the rooftop Presidential Suite as well as the Lobby Lounge and Harbourside restaurant plus Alain Ducasse’s Spoon and Nobu if you can bag a window table.
All the restaurants have special menus planned for October 1st including a six course tasting menu at Alain Ducasse and an eight course omakase menu at Nobu.
When an email called Sexy Fish dropped into Chopstix’s mail box we must admit to reaching for the delete button. Then we noticed that it was a new eatery from Caprice Holdings, those masters of the restaurant scene in London. The moniker is being scoffed at but let’s not be too harsh, choosing a name may be the most difficult task a restaurant owner faces. The eponymous name above the door aside, names are a minefield. An unpronounceable appellation can be the kiss of death since no one wants to embarrass themselves by getting it wrong and so never discusses it let alone books it.
