Recently opened in the historic Yau Ma Tei district of Hong Kong, Hotel Stage is a stylish yet intimate property that pays homage to the city’s artisans
Enjoying a prominent location in the vibrant Yau Ma Tei district, the hotel’s sophisticated design, created by Alen Chen, cocoons guests within the city's bustling cultural centre. Set amidst a range of family-owned traditional shops that have been in business for generations, such as Chinese hand embroidery bridal shops, Chinese herbal medicine apothecaries, vintage teahouses and a theatre that was once a setting for Hong Kong's vibrant film industry, the modern interiors display art works by a range of local talents.
The property is designed to serve the curious traveller, and the interiors are designed as a canvas that connects the guests with Hong Kong's artistic community through a carefully curated, inspiring collection of art and a varied programme of cultural events. Modern furnishings create a warm and comfortable contemporary environment throughout the 97 guestrooms and suites. Oversized windows provide abundant natural light and sweeping views of local heritage landmarks and classic high rises, and each room is equipped with high-speed multimedia connectivity devices and deluxe amenities.
In the all-day-dining Italian restaurant, Kitchen Savvy, guests can enjoy fresh and bright surroundings coupled with tastefull accents that include patterned mosaic floor tiling. Featuring an open-kitchen concept, the space is divided into three zones, including a living room and lounge, an intimate dining area and a communal dining space for entertaining friends or business partners.
At Muse, the district’s newest underground venue, a creative hideout and community hangout has been designed. It features three integrated zones: Browse at the Muse – a retail showcase of fine art and design books as well as artist products and artisanal gifts; the Muse Wine Bar – offering more than 100 handpicked wines, light meals including cheeseboards and Spotlight at the Muse presents community artistic and cultural initiatives, including workshops, performances and exhibitions.
