In town for business or bleisure? Check into Chopstix’s pick of Hong Kong hotels with great Club lounges. The criteria? Great views and real champagne.
Grand Club, Grand Hyatt
UPDATE: Grand Hyatt’s club lounge has just reopened following a revamp. It still has a sweeping stair case leading up to the best view of Victoria Harbour. They’ve now extended the evening champagne (with canapés) to all day free flow.
The Ritz Carlton Club Lounge
Open 24 hours with breakfast, light lunches, afternoon tea, canapés and dessert bar. 465 meters above sea level, it has TST rather than harbour views which are impressive none the less. Best of all there’s an around the clock bar including champagne.
Horizon Club, Island Shangri La
Lavish decor plus outdoor roof garden with city and Victoria Peak views on the 56th floor. Impressive evening buffet as well as champagne. Also gives you access to the lovely Petrus restaurant for breakfast.
The Four Seasons Executive Club
Fantastic balcony with views of the harbour from the 45th floor. Open 24 hours with champagne available with evening canapés and post dinner – the bar is open until 1am.
Club Intercontinental, The Intercontinental
Great breakfast (including a la carte menu) and afternoon tea. Mezzanine level looking out at the Hong Kong skyline and over the hotel’s lobby so you don’t feel detached from the action. Champagne with evening canapes.
