New Japanese Izakaya The Aubrey Will Open In Mandarin Oriental In 2021
Maximal Concepts and Mandarin Oriental are set to welcome 2021 with a new collaborative undertaking in The Aubrey, an eccentric Japanese izakaya on the hotel's 25th floor. Scheduled to open in January next year, the upcoming opening is part of the hotel's programme to reimagine its iconic top floor.
The hotel has already undergone some big changes recently, with two-Michelin-starred French restaurant, Pierre and sky-high bar, M Bar shutting their doors earlier this year. Man Wah––an award-winning choice for fine Chinese cuisine––is taking over M Bar's space and is currently on its six-month-long renovation process, scheduled to reopen in January 2021.
During this hiatus, the restaurant's space has been transformed into Yum Cha by Man Wah, a dim-sum pop-up offering chef Wong Wing-Keung's Cantonese creations, which is only open on the weekend.
Meanwhile, the new space to be occupied by The Aubrey––which was previously home to Pierre––will feature three distinctive bar experiences where guests can enjoy a variety of Japanese craft cocktails, whiskies, and cuisine, perfectly curated on the foundation of exceptional and sustainable ingredients.
With an uninterrupted view of Victoria Harbour, the 25th floor has long been coveted as one of the most awe-inspiring dining locations in the city.
Further details on The Aubrey will follow in the coming months.
