The Murray, Hong Kong

Set to open later this year, The Murray, Hong Kong will also have four new exciting bars and restaurants. Originally opened in 1969, The Murray has been renovated and redesigned and the opening is one we are excited to witness.

Its Garden Lounge will be for the afternoon tea-seekers who want a bit of champers and a pre-dinner bite. The Murray Lane, will be a bar meant for the after-work crowd looking to kick up their heels and relax with friends. It will serve craft beers, premium spirits and wines, and gourmet small plates. The Tai Pan is its modern European-inspired cuisine restaurant and will feature lunch and dinner with seasonal ingredients. And for the rooftop lovers (who isn’t?) Murray on the Roof will be a 120-seat outdoor lounge and entertainment area featuring a skyline view of our beloved city. With a private dining room and bar, it will offer up meals, small tapas sharing plates, cocktails, drinks and more while DJs and special musical guests spin their beats.
