CATHAY PACIFIC'S BRIDGE LOUNGE, HONG KONG
By Rhiannon Taylor, February 2018
One of Hong Kong's best kept secrets is where to find great dumplings. And we think we may have just found them at Hong Kong's International Airport in The Bridge Lounge by Cathay Pacific.
Admittance: Passengers departing with a Business Class ticket or who are Silver members or above of Cathay Pacific's Marco Polo Club loyalty program or OneWorld partner programs. For the full list of eligible guests please visit here.
Design: Opened in 2013, The Bridge spans 2567 square metres and you are welcomed to a reception area clad with Italian marble and a backlit wall. Entering the space however, things are less OTT and more understated luxury with a residential design that is inviting and functional. Warm colours and timber flooring give the space a chic-apartment vibe, coupled with low hanging lamps and an abundance of light from an outward facing window wall. Deep back sofas teamed with low coffee tables are arranged like a lounge room and connect on to dining areas forming a North and South wing.
Amenities: There are nine shower suites in the South Wing and the personal attendants can provide hair and shaving products on request.
Business Facilities: The IT zone in the South Wing is ready for you to set up your laptop, with phones, printers and fast internet provided. There are also USB and international electrical outlets throughout the lounge.
Dining: The Bakery is located in the North Wing which bakes fresh bread, pizzas and iconic treats such as egg custard tars and fluffy pork buns. We also loved The Bistro in the South Wing, offering some of Hong Kong's best dumplings, a great version of pho and a buffet of western favourites. For those wanting a lighter option, hit the Long Bar for cocktails, champagne, wine or beer, a selection of tapas and views over the airport or head to the Coffee Loft for a caffeine hit. Needless to say, you're not short on dining options at The Bridge.
Location: The Bridge is located near Gate 35 serving the airport's West Concourse.
