• The Murray, Hong Kong stirs appetites with a delicious mix of new restaurants and bars

    15 September 2017

    (17 August 2017, Hong Kong) The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel, will debut four world-class restaurants and bars when the hotel opens in late 2017. In addition to Guo Fu Lou, the hotel’s restaurants and bars will showcase local and international flavours inspired by diverse culinary traditions. Destined to be an exciting new lifestyle destination, the highly anticipated hotel will offer a variety of gastronomic and entertainment experiences to inspire guests and excite gourmands.

    With its stylish interiors, Murray Lane is poised to be the go-to bar venue for after-work gatherings among the city’s finance community. The bar will serve a selection of craft beers, premium spirits and wines, as well as a variety of gourmet small plates, ideal for pre-dinner cocktails and casual dining. Discreetly positioned on the ground floor, Murray Lane will accommodate 46 guests indoors and offer light lunch options as well as premium teas and barista-made coffees.

    Adding a contemporary twist to an elegant tradition, the Garden Lounge, situated on the Garden Level (UG/F), will be open throughout the day and serve afternoon tea. The lounge will welcome up to 108 guests for a mid-day indulgence or pre-dinner drinks, including champagne and specialty wines from the sommelier’s selection. Guests may dine indoors or alfresco on the Garden Lounge’s verdant terrace overlooking The Murray Lawns and the neighbouring green oasis of Hong Kong Park.

    A dining room for Hong Kong’s captains of industry and leaders in style, The Tai Pan will serve modern European-influenced dishes. Located on the Garden Level (UG/F), the restaurant will offer a lunch menu designed for on-the-go executives and a dinner selection that showcases seasonal ingredients and culinary creativity. An extensive wine selection by the hotel’s resident sommelier will complement this gastronomic journey and celebrate the great wine-making regions of the world. Guests will also enjoy an elegant display of international breakfast dishes in the mornings. The sleek interiors exude an atmosphere of relaxed luxury and will feature a masculine aesthetic anchored by geometric lines, gold accents and luxurious materials in a rich plum-red palette. The subtle design conveys a sophistication that makes The Tai Pan an ideal choice for business luncheons, memorable celebrations or a special romantic evening. The restaurant will seat up to 66 guests indoors while an additional 48 seats with a view of the Cotton Tree Terrace are available for guests who prefer al fresco dining.

    Crowning the hotel’s top floor, Murray on The Roof will be the social epicentre for the city’s movers and shakers. Surrounded by a view of Hong Kong’s panoramic skyline, the 355 sqm, 120-seat lifestyle and entertainment space includes an indoor dining area, a private dining room, and a bar. Accompanied by a rooftop terrace, this beautifully landscaped outdoor area provides the perfect backdrop for alfresco entertainment, and will accommodate up to 120 guests. Open throughout the day, guests can look forward to seasonal dining menus, shared platters and tapas inspired by the world’s greatest epicurean cities.

    Reflecting the cosmopolitan, sophisticated lifestyle of The Murray’s guests, the extensive bar programme includes a selection of cocktails crafted by the city’s best mixologists, music playlists performed live by the bar’s line-up of DJs and occasional entertainment events. For an exclusive experience, The Aviary, a private dining room with a striking glass façade, will be available for intimate events and accommodate up to 14 guests.

    “The Murray, Hong Kong will bring an added dimension to the city’s international dining scene with new fashionable venues for entertaining and creative event spaces such as The Arches,” says Duncan Palmer, managing director of The Murray. “Balancing understated glamour and culinary sophistication, we look forward to providing our local and international guests with exciting dining and bar concepts as well as unforgettable experiences.”
