It has been eight years since the last luxury hotel opened on Hong Kong Island. To mark this special occasion, The Murray Hotel is finally celebrating its completion with a new rooftop bar, Popinjays.

If you fancy yourself to be a social butterfly, then this is the place for you. Popinjays, takes its name from the local cockatoos along neighbouring garden road, Hong Kong Park and Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. In their natural environment, these birds are drawn to being part of a flock, and rarely fly solo; the habits of these birds embody Popinjays’ sociable spirit.

This sophisticated dining and bar concept is set within a purpose built glass pavilion on top of the 25-storey building. Offering its 114 guests, the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal under an abundance of natural light. Chef Didier Quennouelle who has over 25 years’ experience offers classic dishes with a touch of creative flair, it is fair to assume this meal will not leave you disappointed.

The rooftop bar is dotted with inviting lounges and comfortable couches, where a variety of bar snacks are available, along with a world-class selection of classic cocktails. If you prefer to be outside, this rooftop bar boasts a wraparound terrace that frames the restaurant, providing the perfect vantage point to appreciate the most beautiful views.

For those seeking a personal experience, The Aviary is a private room ideal for business gatherings, celebratory occasions or exclusive dinners for up to 14 guests. Located in an extraordinary setting that embraces the intense urbanity and unique topography of Hong Kong, Popinjays is the new “poppin” place to be. If you want to experience a one of a kind rooftop bar be sure to check out Popinjays, at The Murray Hotel, Hong Kong.
