Hong Kong Restaurants

The Lobby Lounge at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong, is one of the most elegant hotel lobby lounges in Hong Kong. 

The setting is spectacular. To begin with, there are crystal chandeliers, the Italian marble, and the gurgling fountain.

Next, there is the spectacular mural and the other pieces of art. Then, there are the floor-to-ceiling windows with the sweeping views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island.

Most importantly, there is the English style afternoon tea, which is among the best high teas in Hong Kong.

However, the Kowloon Shangri-La Lobby Lounge is also the perfect spot for morning coffee, light meals, or pre- and after dinner drinks.

Best of all, there is live music throughout the afternoon and evening!

Kowloon Shangri-La Lobby Lounge – The Concept

As with many other hotel lobby lounges in Hong Kong, the Kowloon Shangri-La Lobby Lounge serves a traditional English style high tea in the afternoon.

In addition, the lounge changes the menu with the seasons.

Consequently, warming menus are served during the short but brisk winters. And cooling menus are served during the long hot summers.  

For August and September, the hotel’s new Executive Pastry Chef, Jonathan Gallet, has put together a late summer Hong Kong menu. And it comprises both sweet and savoury elements.

The sophisticated Hong Kong lounge will serve the  “Tea Elegance” Afternoon Tea set menu from 1 August to 30 September 2020.

And the delightful Hong Kong food will be served in tea trees that are reminiscent of Birdie Paradise birdcages.
