Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong

The Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong opened its doors 1963 as the tallest building on Hong Kong Island. Fifty years later, the luxury hotel offers some of the best digs in town, with two Michelin-starred restaurants, 24-hour technology butlers, and a swank spa. To fete this big birthday, the luxury hotel on 5 Connaught Road is pulling out all the stops with gourmet fare and spa treats.

This week, chef Pierre Gagnaire has returned to offer a special 1963 French menu at Pierre restaurant; the menu features some of the chef’s favorite dishes from the era, and it will be available until October 29. What’s more, guests can try a 1963 Cognac Godet or an exclusive, limited edition Taylor’s 1963 Single Harvest Tawny Port in The Chinnery. The Krug Room will also offer 1960s dishes, but with a twist; think “Fruit Loops 2013,” Julia Childs-inspired “Beef Bourguignon”, “Baked Alaska” and “Ich bin ein Berliner”. Martini expert Alessando Palazzi will be shaking up cocktails at the Captain’s Bar between October 21 and 26. And lastly, Da Dong Roast Duck Restaurant in Beijing will return to Man Wah from October 24 to 31 October, and on November 1, Mr Da Dong will host a big Gala Dinner, featuring Château d’Yquem wines, in the Connaught Room.
