Mondrian Hong Kong has opened its 324 guestrooms including 12 two-bay suites in the beating heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong’s most vibrant neighbourhood, with elements inspired by Hong Kong’s rich history, design flourishes like a floating minibar and sweeping island skyline vistas, plus curated works and performances by local artists.
In addition and true to brand, the hotel is housed within an expressive architectural statement and future landmark, featuring design from the wild imagination of Karin Krautgartner and cutting-edge art and installations from inspired local and international artists. The F7B offerings include Carna, a sophisticated nose-to-tail Italian steakhouse by culinary philosopher and legendary butcher Dario Cecchini, designed by award-winning local hero Joyce Wang.
“Mondrian is a brand that takes its inspiration from people, and their stories,” said Gaurav Bhushan, Co-CEO, Ennismore. “It is through collaboration with local and international artists, designers and chefs that we create experiences for global travellers that are rich in culture and surprises. Yet the brilliance of the brand is in its allure as a destination for locals as well as travellers,” continued Bhushan. “This is where the power of lifestyle hospitality lies – the ability to invite an energising mix of the community and world beyond – celebrating the local roots of the destination while allowing an infusion of global ideas to inform further and enrich the hotel experience”.
Discover Avoca, an innovative cocktail bar, makes a great addition to Kowloon’s evolving bar scene with DJs, sounds, creative comfort food and vibrant energy is matched with a 40th floor rooftop space given over to cultural happenings, community gatherings and unexpected performances. Not to mention immediate MTR access and proximity to all the action and inspirations of the West Kowloon Cultural District.
As part of Mondrian’s deep regard for its neighbourhood and community, its team is committed to giving back and rather than the traditional welcome of VIP’s and celebrities as the first guests, Mondrian marked its launch and arrival in the city with inviting Single Parent Families to a much deserved Staycation. As a first initiative and sign of a true commitment to becoming an integral part of the community, the hotel made space for those who need a small getaway the most in a meaningful way to introduce the brand.
“It’s a chance to make a positive impact, position Mondrian as a brand that takes its responsibilities to the community seriously, help those who need it most, support local talents, and inspire future collaborations that can have a lasting impact,” said Dirk Dalichau, General Manager, Mondrian Hong Kong.
The opening initiative marked the beginning of Mondrian’s community involvement, its mission to be an integral part of the city and use business with a social and cultural purpose.
