It is always busy but great to have a drink when you return to the Hotel after shopping. The 4 piece band on the balcony overlooking the lobby is a reminder of times past.

Celebrate birthday here with free 1 for 4 offer. The atmosphere is excellent with live concert music. However, the taste of food may need to have improvement especially the main dish, may consider add some Chinese dish in the birthday set menu.

Something of a institution in Hong Kong, afternoon tea at the The Peninsula is one of those wonderful ways to eat and drink away a day. Avoid the (long) queues by staying in the hotel.
