While The Murray, Hong Kong, A Niccolo Hotel first opened its doors back in January, a number of its other facilities, including the spa, ballroom and some F&B facilities, only fully launched in February. The hotel’s new lobby bar Murray Lane focuses on premium spirits, wines, and craft beers, as well as signature cocktails from its The Tape and The Cassia lists – the former taking its name from the hotel’s “Wall Street” neighbourhood and the latter from the heritage Cassia Javanica tree on the hotel’s grounds. Open Sunday to Thursday, 7:30am to 12:00am; Friday to Saturday, 7:30am to 1:00am.

Perched on the 52nd floor of the Banyan Tree Bangkok is a brand new alfresco garden lounge, Saffron Sky Garden, one of the highest outdoor sky gardens in the city.

Open 5pm-1am daily.
