Bar with a view opens in Hong Kong’s Sky Bridge
Hong Kong International Airport’s Sky Bridge has its own cocktail bar after today’s opening of ‘Intervals’ by the Plaza Premium Group.
PPG boldly promises that the first-of-its-kind concept will offer “an unparalleled world-class cocktail and dining experience”.
Indeed, it describes as Intervals as being a destination in its own right, offering “a creative concept that elevates the airport experience with a unique food and drink programme on the Sky Bridge”.
At 200 metres long and 28 metres high, Sky Bridge is the world’s longest airside bridge, its unique vantage point offering visitors spectacular views of the entire airfield.
Mei Mei Song, PPG’s brand and product transformation director, said: “Our commitment is to make travel better and we are grateful that Hong Kong International Airport has always offered a platform for us to drive new concepts to uplift the passenger experience.
“As we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year, it is fortuitous that we are able to work together again to introduce a new experience by creating a world-class airport bar that is a destination in itself.
“We hope everyone can take a moment and treat themselves to their favourite tipple, over some good food with spectacular views of the airport, giving passengers a new way to spend their time at the airport.”
Alby Tsang, head of retail and Advertising for the Airport Authority Hong Kong, said: “We are delighted to welcome Intervals to join HKIA to offer passengers with elevated dining experience.
“Sky Bridge is the world’s longest airside bridge and it is aspired to be the iconic feature at HKIA and we hope passengers could enjoy the stunning view of airport during their visit at Intervals.”
The concept for Intervals was developed by PPG’s Mei Mei Song together with creative director Victoria Chow, founder of acclaimed Hong Kong bar The Woods.
Designed by Australian architect Mitchel Squires, has taken three years to conceptualise.
The name ‘Intervals’, notes PPG, is inspired by the idea that the time of day becomes fluid while travelling, and that key actions are measured in intervals of time.
Airport Authority Hong Kong and Plaza Premium Group have a long-established business relationship since 1998, when the group introduced the world’s first independent airport lounge, Plaza Premium Lounge at HKIA.
A quarter of a century 25 on, the opening of Intervals will further strengthen their commitment to raise the bar and pioneer future-forward customer experiences.
