One of Hong Kong’s best-loved dining spaces, Cafe Gray Deluxe, is set to close.
The level 49 ‘grand cafe’ opened in 2009 with a fine dining menu and sweeping views across Victoria Harbour. The cafe belongs to Swire-owned hotel The Upper House, part of the group’s Asia-based The House Collective.
Cafe Gray Deluxe will operate its last day of service on December 31, 2020, and a new dining concept will be revealed in spring 2021. Cafe Gray Deluxe at The Middle House in Shanghai will remain open.
The tour-de-force behind Cafe Gray Deluxe in Hong Kong was chef Gray Kunz, who masterfully blended the flavours, ingredients and elegance of both Asian and European culinary traditions.
As a farewell, the restaurant will be offering a menu featuring classic Chef Gray creations which will be available from now until the end of December.
“We thank our friends and guests who have helped shape Cafe Gray Deluxe’s imprint imprint on the community since the beginning,” said Yvonne Cheung, director of restaurants at The Upper House. “We are all extremely proud of the reputation and success we have gained since 2009 and are excited about the next chapter for The Upper House.”
The Upper House is not the first hotel to give its dining options a shake-up this year. Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong recently revealed that it will be opening a new cocktail bar and lobby cafe in 2021. And Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong announced earlier this year that it would be starting a six-month renovation plan to refresh its 25th Floor dining amenities; the Connaught Road hotel is planning to open new concept restaurant, The Aubrey, in January 2021.
