The name is worthy of the tides: Ebb & Flow. It also matches the new work and lifestyle concept for the lobby lounge of The Park Lane Hong Kong, a luxury Pullman Hotel brand. Anchored in Hong Kong’s bustling Causeway Bay area with sweeping suite views of Victoria Harbour, The Park Lane is staking out the chic fleet with Ebb & Flow’s new art design.

Local architect William Lim of CL3 Architects has made the lounge into a seamless flow of space with timber, copper and stone. The raw aesthetics give it a contemporary living volume that is both luxurious and casual. It has been enlivened with prints from Austrian photographer Galerie Junger for a sensual oceanic interior. These entail pictures of limes, lobsters, octopi, and watercress. The hotel has further partnered with Grain & Pixel digital art collective to present a kaleidoscope inspired installation. The reception area has iconic images of Bruce Lee and classic red-sailed junk ships in Victoria Harbour.

For the “beautiful nomads” who stay or visit here, they have cooked up a solid menu. This includes a fresh bakery service and slow pressed juicer for breakfast. Lunch offers all manner of salads, international tray sets, and fresh sandwiches. It also has afternoon tea with tapas. Their pastry chef Roy Lau’s hand-crafted éclairs are among Ebb & Flow’s magical tastes. The lounge also touts Hong Kong’s only Steampunk coffee machine—which allows for craft-brewing with an app service.

It goes without saying that they serve impressive cocktails, and other forward thinking elixirs. Open to 1 am, Ebb & Flow can serve as a wind-down spot for friends or business clients.

Or for whatever floats your boat.
