After having afternoon tea at Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, I was treated with a tour of the iconic hotel. As mentioned in the afternoon tea review,
What is now known today as the Mandarin Oriental hotel brand began with a hotel called The Mandarin. Since 50 years ago in 1963, The Mandarin was a well known hotel in Hong Kong.
The name Mandarin Oriental is a combination of names from two iconic hotels when the company acquired The Oriental in Bangkok. With both names, Mandarin and Oriental combined, it became what is known today as the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
Also on the first floor is this luxury shoemaker, John Lobb shoe polishing chair. It’s one of just a few in the world.
And nearby the chair is a flower shop that sells some pretty flowers!
Next up are Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong’s dining options. There are 10 of them! Here are a few.
Next up is The Chinnery, a lounge which serves British food.
The lounge has a ton of single malt whiskies… which fun fact- it has one of the world’s largest collections!
To get to the next restaurant, we didn’t leave The Chinnery. Going through a door in the lounge, we arrived at The Krug Room.
This is a one table restaurant for 12 which offers ‘progressive gastronomy’ where there is no menu, but several courses are served in one dinner.
Another restaurant, Pierre is Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong’s two Michelin starred restaurant (which I love the interior design!)
And finally is Clipper Lounge- the lively lounge where you can have afternoon tea.
