Popinjays is a contemporary lifestyle rooftop restaurant and bar offering European gastronomy. Reflecting Hong Kong’s vibrant, cosmopolitan style, the lifestyle destination is designed to attract the city’s flamboyant, fashionable crowd and leaders in style.
Popinjays, a term once assigned to parrots, takes its name from the resident cockatoos along neighbouring Garden Road, Hong Kong Park and Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Naturally drawn to being part of a flock, and rarely flying solo, the habits of these birds embody Popinjays’ sociable spirit.
As the hotel’s lifts open onto the rooftop, guests are drawn to the stylish bar and wraparound terrace that frames the restaurant. The 420 square meter outdoor terrace provides the perfect vantage point to appreciate the most Instagram-worthy views. Along with a world-class selection of classic cocktails, bespoke creations and specialty spirits, guests can choose from a variety of bar snacks.
Those seeking an intimate dining experience will appreciate The Aviary. A private room ideal for business gatherings, celebratory occasions or exclusive dinners for up to 20 guests.
Chef Didier Quennouelle brings his 25 years’ of experience to the Popinjays kitchen and deliver a modern European-inspired menu. Drawing on the traditions of French gastronomy, the master chef will interpret classic dishes with his signature creative flair lending a distinctive Gallic influence. From Monday to Thursday, guests can choose from a four or six-course seasonal degustation menu that will change weekly. A curated selection of vintage champagnes and wines will complement the dining experience.
Extending epicurean pleasures to the afternoon, Popinjays expands its service and soars with the debut of the city’s most fun and playful rooftop afternoon tea. Bursting with colours, complemented with an optional fiery tableside showcase, this interactive gastronomic experience promises to tantalise the palate and keep one entertained through the afternoon.
