Creating its own scene in vibrant Hong Kong, Maison Eight brings the best of French cuisine, celebrity cocktails, champagne and parties under one roof with a sartorial attitude. Design, fashion and hospitality are at the forefront of the concept, making 8 Observatory Road the address to see and be seen.
Fashionably lavish, Maison Eight is four concepts in one destination, like a luxury hotel without rooms. Designed by Two Men in Hats, guests walk through the hand stamped Italian leather doors into the penthouse where they are surrounded by spectacular views across Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.
Intimate French restaurant esmé illustrates passion for the classical approach to food and service. The ideal new venue in Kowloon for long lunches, business liaisons and extravagant evenings, esmé is elegantly designed with French flair. Executive Chef and General Manager Joe Chan returns to Hong Kong to craft classic French menus with a pinch of inspiration from his travels. With one of the largest boutique wine lists in Hong Kong, carefully selected by Assistant General Manager Guillaume Places, guests will understand that the best wines are to be enjoyed, not just collected.
Salvatore at Maison Eight is the first cocktail bar in Asia by The Maestro, world-renowned bartender Salvatore Calabrese, and is headed by his protégé Fabien Marcault. Together they have created an innovative menu which includes a modern approach to classic cocktails, a selection of the Maestro’s Signature cocktails and some exciting new offerings of Asian influence, exclusive to Maison Eight. Their style is evident in their 10.8m bar, inspired by the depths of Victoria Harbour and the moody skies of the city.
The Ballroom at Maison Eight is a modern reinvention of the classic ballroom with coach built detailing and its very own private terrace – the place to drink, dine, parade and party. The elegant salon, great for lunch and afternoon tea, transforms into a lounge in the evenings for social dining, events and gatherings. A soundtrack for all the hours of the day and night has been carefully curated with live performances and international DJs in the line-up.
Maison Eight is host to the world’s first Bollinger Champagne Room, LE CLUB 1829, a vintage inspired private room with astonishing views and a rich palette of finishes that complement the opulent use of colour and texture. LE CLUB 1829 offers a peek into the adjacent wine cellar where over 2,300 bottles reside, placed in suede lined wine racks, including a complete collection of all the cuveé and key vintages of this distinguished brand.
Maison Eight is a 8,000 square foot venue for today’s sophisticated and fashionable set.
