Since launching this past February, HAUS — Mercedes-Benz and IWC Schaffhausen’s new joint retail concept — has become one of the hottest destinations in the city for dining, refreshments and to see and be seen.
It’s a visual feast from the moment one enters the 5,000 square-foot, two story space. The main floor offers a retail experience and a showroom featuring the brands’ finest offerings, on display for enthusiasts and owners alike. Playing host to iconic timepieces from IWC Schaffhausen, the space also features a rotating selection of Mercedes-Benz models. Currently on display is the newly launched all-electric EQA from Mercedes-EQ and IWC’s latest Pilot’s Watches collection.
Upstairs, the multi-use space brings car, watch and lifestyle enthusiasts some never-before-seen experiences in Hong Kong. Through a collaborative partnership, the bar and restaurant have played host in recent months to some of Hong Kong’s most celebrated culinary superstars, including The Arcane Collective’s Shane Osborn and Antimo Maria Merone, who presented an Italian-Chinese tasting menu that was not to be missed.
Currently, the ground floor offers an escape to Italy with Illy in partnership with Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong; upstairs, Krug Ambassade chef Robin Zavou has developed an innovative menu of playfully interpreted local classics using seasonal produce for The Krug Kitchen.
Continuing with this tradition, the menu and chef will change from by season and from time to time, giving guests a reason to come back again and again. In August, guests can return to find a full Japanese reinterpretation of both floors, promising a culinary experience to match. In a city that loves food like Hong Kong, it’s a level of exclusivity that makes dining out more than just a meal, but an unforgettable experience.
