The Lang­ham, Hong Kong has re­cently un­der­gone a US$30 mil­lion facelift, ex­e­cuted by Lon­don-based in­te­rior and ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign firm GA De­sign. The pro­ject has raised the bench­mark for lux­ury ho­tels in the city, as one can see in the newly un­veiled rooms and re­mod­elled high­tea des­ti­na­tion Palm Court. The re­fur­bish­ment pro­ject in­cludes the Arte­sian, a stylish hang­out that hails from Lon­don, where it has been voted “The World’s Best Bar” by Drinks In­ter­na­tional mag­a­zine for three years run­ning.

Here in Hong Kong, Arte­sian is de­signed as a nat­u­ral ex­ten­sion of Palm Court and char­ac­terised by a decor that blends art deco de­tails with con­tem­po­rary style. With a fire­place to com­plete the cosy feel, this new out­let at The Lang­ham, Hong Kong prom­ises to be the new hotspot for the ter­ri­tory’s well heeled. Here, they can lux­u­ri­ate in style with a wide se­lec­tion of wines and pre­mium spir­its, and live en­ter­tain­ment from a harp player, pi­anist and singer.
