The legendary Peninsula Hong Kong is embarking on a year of milestone celebrations to commemorate eight-and a half decades as one of the top hotels in Asia. The Peninsula, which opened its doors Dec. 11, 1928, is launching tributes to the traditions of The Peninsula and Hong Kong.
Among the celebrations will be the unveiling of new guestrooms in the Original Building in May, celebrating 60 years of dining excellence at Gaddi’s; a “Tribute to Hong Kong” at Spring Moon; and a taste of the future at Felix. There also will be a revival of the Afternoon Tea Dance in The Lobby and “Glamour Time” at The Spa, and a new Peninsula Academy program preserving the city’s disappearing crafts.
The Afternoon Tea Dance is a tradition that dates back to The Peninsula’s opening in 1928. It returns to The Lobby with a 10-piece big band the first Sunday of each month through November.
Gaddi’s celebrates its Diamond Jubilee at The Peninsula with a commemorative eight-course Diamond Jubilee menu that features reinterpretations of French classics in the refined style that has made Gaddi’s a Hong Kong icon. The menu will be available the second Sunday of each month.
The Art of Celebration brings art performances to the heart of the hotel – in The Peninsula’s iconic Lobby. Working with organizations including the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation and artists, specially choreographed live performances will set the tone on the fourth Sunday of each month in 2013.
