Eaton HKWhy we love it: Art, food, and social action come together in a vibrant hub
- A gallery and cinema featuring local artists
- A cheeky rooftop pool complete with Romanesque columns and frolicking flamingos
- A food hall with 11 stalls by local chefs
When activist and artist Katherine Lo, who grew up in Hong Kong, decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a hotelier, she had something a bit different than her father's luxury Langham Hotels in mind. As an artist and activist herself, she decided to open properties with art and activism at their heart. The Eaton HK, located in the somewhat gritty Kowloon Island neighborhood of Jordan, has small-but-functional AvroKO-designed rooms that feature thoughtful touches like a Himalayan salt lamp and organic bath products from Grown Alchemists. But why spend time in the room when the rest of the hotel has so much more to offer?
Eaton HK has an art gallery called Tomorrow Maybe; a photography studio; a radio station; a cinema for screenings and discussions; live music venues for performances, panels, workshops, and readings; and artist residency rooms outfitted as professional visual arts and recording studios. Not to mention the paintings, sculptures, and various installations that are found in every corner. The hotel’s culinary offerings include two signature restaurants, two cocktail bars, and Eaton Foodhall, with 11 stalls slinging everything from thick Hong Kong-style toast to traditional congee to vegetarian Japanese specialties. Wellness is also a priority, with a 24-hour gym, complimentary tai chi classes, a rooftop pool, yoga studio, and juice bar. And when guests are ready to hit the city, the bustling markets and dim sum eateries of Nathan Road are waiting.
