Gathering with loved ones to share a sumptuous meal is one of life’s undeniably great pleasures. It’s also one that many people around the world have missed in recent months.

For more than a century, The Peninsula Hotels has been dedicated to helping its guests create singular and lasting memories. So, as people begin to carefully reunite and resume their favourite activities, The Peninsula Hotels is delighted to offer an array of specially designed dining options for guests. Through these culinary experiences – which include dining outdoors and in private venues – Peninsula guests can safely rediscover the joys of being together.

Alluring Alfresco Venues

The Peninsula properties are situated in some of the world’s most beautiful cities, many with outdoor dining spaces. By day, these terraces offer stunning views over architectural landmarks, rooftops, and bustling waterways; by night they are bathed in light from glittering cityscapes, flickering candles, and the moon above.

At The Peninsula Shanghai, the grand Sir Elly's Terrace provides magnificent panoramic vistas of the Huangpu River, Suzhou Creek and the skyscrapers of Pudong – including Shanghai Tower and Oriental Pearl Tower – from its sleek banquettes and long, illuminated bar. A popular meeting spot for Shanghai’s movers and shakers, the Terrace invites guests to enjoy signature cocktails, chilled wines and rare whiskeys along with light dishes (like duck spring rolls, and caviar with blini) as the sun sets over the Bund.

A captivating China-meets-the-Mediterranean ambience imbues the palatial YUN Summer Lounge, atop the 15th floor of The Peninsula Beijing. Here, beneath an elegantly peaked pagoda roof, guests can relax among red-silk cushions and red paper lanterns to enjoy modern cocktails, top-tier gin selections, and light Asian and Continental bites (like spiced lamb skewers and charred-pork bao). Also on offer: sweeping views over the posh surrounding district of Wangfujing and live DJ set over weekends.

Equally arresting views await guests who visit Z Bar, a chic rooftop boîte atop The Peninsula Chicago. The lounge – where sleek white-upholstered settees are scattered beneath a filigreed-glass canopy – takes in the famous thoroughfare of Michigan Avenue and the iconic Water Tower. While taking in the cityscape and mellow DJ-curated beats, guests can choose from an expansive menu of creative and classic cocktails, top-shelf spirits, wines, and a selection of globally inspired light bites. A separate private dining room provides a stylish environment for catered gatherings or cocktail classes for up to 10 people.

Local guests and visitors have long appreciated the Roof Garden at The Peninsula Beverly Hills for its quintessential California glamour. Fresh, healthful dishes are served up here in poolside cabanas, or at tables beneath beachy striped awnings with views over Los Angeles; many – like roasted branzino with tomatoes and fennel, or cilantro-spiked chilaquiles – incorporate herbs and produce grown right in the rooftop gardens.

At Le Rooftop, for example – the elegant lounge perched atop The Peninsula Paris – divans tucked amid flowering plants provide a perfect evening vantage point from which to take in the Eiffel Tower and the grand rooftops of the 16th arrondissement. As the sun dips, guests can sample artisanal cocktails and sophisticated light bites such as octopus carpaccio; later, they can move to the adjoining terrace of L’Oiseau Blanc, the hotel’s Michelin-starred, aviation-themed restaurant, for a French gastronomic feast.

Exquisite Private Dining

Diners who seek an exclusive, privately catered meal – whether it be an intimate candlelit dinner for two, or a celebratory multi-course feast for a wedding party or extended family – will find their needs superbly met by The Peninsula Hotels. Customised menus, impeccable service, and a variety of sophisticated spaces ensure every private dining experience is a memorable event.

A renowned culinary destination since 1986, The Peninsula Hong Kong’s Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant, Spring Moon, delights diners with exquisite fare and stunning art-deco interiors. The restaurant’s suite of elegantly appointed private dining rooms – which can be booked separately or joined to accommodate parties of guests to gather with friends and family to sample the award-winning cuisine of Chef Lam Yuk Ming. The tableside preparation of dishes like flaming drunken Kuruma prawns and poached sea conch in Cordyceps soup ensures an experience that is both memorable and sublimely delicious. 

For a momentous small gathering of family and friends, The Nest, at The Peninsula Tokyo’s Peter restaurant, makes an indelible impression. The glass-enclosed private dining room, perched high on the hotel’s 24th floor, seems to float above the surrounding cityscape, including the Tokyo International Forum, Tokyo Station and the soaring Tokyo Sky Tree (the world's tallest observation tower). Up to eight diners can savour selections from Peter’s menu of steaks and refined grill specialties, along with creative cocktails and premier spirits.

At The Peninsula Paris, the “Secret Table” provides the ultimate environment for an unforgettably romantic rendezvous: a stunning, private terrace at the highest point of the hotel building, with a breath-taking view of the Sacré-Cœur, the Eiffel Tower, and the rooftops of the City of Light. Crisp white linens, fresh flowers, and a dedicated butler set the stage for a sumptuous tailor-made dinner with paired wines and – of course – fine Champagne.
