The Park Lane Hong Kong Presents Playt, a Play­ful New Con­cept

HK Magazine - - SPOTLIGHT - park­

The iconic Park Lane Ho­tel has been stand­ing in Cause­way Bay for the past four decades, and since it’s be­come one of the Pull­man Ho­tels, it has gone through a range of ren­o­va­tions and re­vi­tal­iza­tion for a more stylish and con­tem­po­rary vibe.

Af­ter a ma­jor re­vamp of its lobby and lobby lounge Ebb & Flow, the ho­tel has done it again: This time, a brand new din­ing con­cept Playt has re­placed much-loved buf­fet res­tau­rant Café One on the first floor.

Open­ing in June, this chic, colorful and in­ven­tive res­tau­rant will in­ject a huge dose of youth­ful­ness to the ho­tel. Renowned Span­ish graf­fiti and street artist Vic­to­ri­ano was in­vited to take part in the ho­tel’s re­ju­ve­na­tion, con­tribut­ing his vi­sion of street and con­tem­po­rary art in the form of four pieces that form fo­cal points of the in­te­rior de­sign of this ur­ban in­dus­trial-chic res­tau­rant. Vic­to­ri­ano’s pho­to­re­al­is­tic art­work uses only aerosol paints, with del­i­cate, de­tailed im­agery ex­e­cuted en­tirely in spray.

But Playt isn’t just about the looks. To cre­ate a com­plete din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, the res­tau­rant will fea­ture an open kitchen theater, serv­ing a wide va­ri­ety of de­lights rang­ing from jet-fresh seafood to carvery and foie gras.

Also on the menu are dishes from all over the world, in­clud­ing Span­ish suck­ling pig, Turk­ish pizza and In­dian tan­doori, all freshly made in an au­then­tic wood-fired oven. If you’re crav­ing some­thing closer to home,

Playt also serves up dim sum, sushi and other pan-Asian fa­vorites.

Glance out­side the win­dows for some mind-sooth­ing green­ery in Vic­to­ria Park af­ter this play­ful and sump­tu­ous meal, and you’ll know that Playt is more than just a play on the word. Check out the ho­tel’s web­site and reg­is­ter for open­ing news and the ex­clu­sive chance to en­joy a buy-3get-1-free of­fer dur­ing the soft open­ing pe­riod.
