HONG KONG Reminiscent of the charming establishments dotting the docks in the south of France or Greek islands is Portside, a new venue at the Aberdeen Marina Club.
Featuring breezy interiors by Ryoichi Niwata of Bond Design, a fast up-and-coming Japanese design firm, the restaurant, mainly open to members of the Club, allows outside bookings of guests referred by members. While no private spaces are available, tables can be arranged for a meeting for 20 to 50 persons, followed by the meal set up. Meeting amenities such as a motorised screen with built-in HD projection, live feed camera and PA system with wireless microphones can be supplied.
Meeting set up
Just off the restaurant, an intimate alcove, resembling the “Captain’s quarters” and distinguished by barrel-shaped wooden chairs, a large round table lit up by a unique globe light fixture and a curved wooden wall like the arc of a boat hull, are ideal for more intimate powows.
The nautical theme continues outside with oversized divans and cushions and deck chairs providing a counterpoint to the teak flooring looking out to a manicured garden which can host cocktail receptions for 400 people. This leads to the Aberdeen Marina Club’s tropical pool and areas to enjoy views of the Aberdeen harbour.
