After a successful launch of the hotel earlier last spring, Popinjays, The Murray’s rooftop bar and restaurant concept officially launches this season.  Perched at the top of the heritage building-turned hotel complex, the bar and restaurant concept is set to present European gastronomy with an energetic, yet glamorous twist.

Once used to describe parrots drawn to fly in flocks, the restaurant’s name is a reminder of wild cockatoos that reside in the area, adding a sociable spirit to Popinjays. The restaurant premise has been a popular location for the city’s glamorous happenings including the Hong Kong Tatler x The Artling x Hublot Art Party as well as Generation T Party 2018. The hotel’s rooftop is transformed into a stylish venue divided into a bar area, main dining space as well as a 420-square-metre outdoor wraparound terrace, capturing a panoramic view of the city from The Peak to Central.
