The 492-room Mira Hong Kong in Tsim Sha Tsui is to celebrate its official Grand Opening on 17 September 2009 with a live performance by award-winning American pop icon Katy Perry.

The Grand Opening Party, which promises to be one of the events of the year in the busy Hong Kong social calendar, has been conceptualised by celebrity event designer Colin Cowie, who is famed for extravaganzas from Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Oscar party to the star-studded launch of Sol Kerzner’s Atlantis the Palm in Dubai.

Cowie also oversaw much of the design concept for the hotel’s über chic contemporary interiors and is the mastermind behind Weddings at The Mira Hong Kong.

Dirk Dalichau, General Manager of The Mira Hong Kong, said, “At The Mira Hong Kong, we are excited about introducing a fresh, upscale hospitality concept designed for those who appreciate tasteful and stylish interiors, personalised intuitive service and who are design-driven and technology savvy.”

The Mira Hong Kong will be unveiling all of its fabulous new restaurants, as well as revealing its stunning state of the art penthouse ballroom and 3/F function rooms.

The hotel will be showcasing the best in upscale European dining by award-winning Chef Justin Quek at his new restaurant WHISK as well as modern Cantonese at Cuisine Cuisine at The Mira, the second branch of the celebrated contemporary Chinese restaurant, which has become one of the most successful eateries in Hong Kong’s landmark International Finance Centre (ifc).

Joining the restaurants will be a fifth floor rooftop garden lounge. A quintessential al fresco venue, it is perfect for unwinding in style and exclusivity, complete with visiting DJs to accompany the chic environs.

These new outlets compliment The Mira Hong Kong’s Japanese-infused international all day buffet restaurant Yamm, coffee and chocolate lounge COCO and lobby lounge bar Room One.

In line with its positioning as an upscale business-cum-lifestyle hotel, The Mira Hong Kong will also boast a 14,000 square-feet (1,318 square-metre) events space, including eight flexible function rooms and a spectacular ballroom featuring 25,000 lighting combination LED lighting, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and unique table settings designed by Colin Cowie.

The Mira Hong Kong’s stylish guest rooms offer a choice of red, green or silver colour schemes. All the rooms are stylishly furnished with handpicked designer fabrics and include an “Egg Chair” by Arne Jacobsen to match each colour scheme, and a rain shower which comes as standard in every deluxe marble bathroom.

The latest in–room technology, used throughout the hotel, incorporates 40-inch LCD TVs, 500GB Sony PC/Entertainment Centres, Bose in-room soundscapes, complimentary high-speed WiFi and wired internet, and a unique “My Mobile” Nokia phone service, which allows guests to be contacted, and to stay in touch, wherever they go in the city. As an extension of this, the “My Mira” service allows for personalised concierge services at the touch of a button.

The Mira Hong Kong will also be opening The Mira Club, which provides premium and exclusive accommodation to guests in the stylish purple themed Club rooms and suites. Members of The Mira Club will also have access to the Club lounge which offers the perfect place for business meetings and guests can enjoy concierge services, private check-in, complimentary breakfast, all day and night nibbles, drinks and more.

The hotel’s stunning design was a collaborative effort by an international team including world-renowned lifestyle guru Colin Cowie who has designed Oprah Winfrey’s Legends Ball and John Travolta’s 50th birthday celebration to name a few, as well as Miami-based Charles Allem of CAD International, Inc. who’s work has included cutting-edge hotels and residences in Bel Air, Palm Beach and Las Vegas.

Colin and Charles worked alongside Hong Kong architects Edmond Wong of designcorp (world renowned for their state-of-the-art expertise on outdoor centres, town planning and entertainment areas), Andrew Choy of Atelier C+ (specialists in stylish store and residential interiors) and British landscape architect Adrian Norman of Adrian L. Norman Ltd (specialists in al fresco urban planning at chic global locations).
