“The Bridge” is yet another one of Cathay Pacific’s six outstanding lounges in the Hong Kong airport. While there isn’t anything that quite makes this lounge unique, everything about this lounge (the relaxing decor, the variety of tasty food and the beautiful showers) area all done very very well.

 

“Join us at The Bridge, our warm and welcoming lounge where everything has been designed with your comfort in mind. Try our tasty Bistro fare, hot breads from the Bakery, or a drink from the Coffee Loft.”

-Cathay Pacific

 

Location

The lounge at Hong Kong airport (HKG) is located in Terminal 1, Level 6 (departures level), by gate 36/37. It is actually at the crux where the terminal splits into two different paths. After security continue walking straight through the terminal, following the signs.

There is no first class lounge, only a business class lounge.Cathay Pacific Lounges Hong Kong Map

Entrance

The entrance is rather unique in that it is completely open and almost looks like a boarding gate. I actually missed the entrance the first time because I was looking by gates 36 or 37 as other sites had mentioned. It’s literally straight ahead through the terminal. Look for the massive sign.Cathay Pacific “The Bridge” Business Class Lounge Hong Kong Sign

Decor

The inside resembles a modern residential apartment. There are various patterns of cozy chairs with scattered lamps and thoughtful decor. I thought the light fixtures were pretty cool. Cathay Pacific The Bridge Lounge Review SeatingCathay Pacific “The Bridge” Business Class Lounge Hong Kong Decor

Food and Drink

The food and drink was very good. Much better than what was offered at The Wing, but not quite as good as at the Qantas Lounge also at the Hong Kong airport (HKG). Additionally, the main dining area is at The Bakery.

Cathay Pacific “The Bridge” Business Class Lounge Hong Kong The BakeryThere was a wide selection of Asian as well as international food. While not especially gourmet, everything looked well made. I tried as many items as I could for this lounge review! While you can’t always judge food based on looks, I’ve found more often than not, lounge food that doesn’t even look appetizing probably tastes even worse.

The food ranged from fresh salad ingredients to wontons and noodles, chicken curry, various pastries and desserts. The only thing that I tried in this lounge review that wasn’t good was the pizza. You would think it’s hard to screw that one up right? My favorite was the chicken curry and Jess was partial toward the creme brulee.Cathay Pacific The Bridge Lounge FoodThe Bridge Cathay Pacific FoodCathay Pacific “The Bridge” Business Class Lounge Hong Kong FoodCathay Pacific “The Bridge” Business Class Lounge Hong Kong Food

The other side of the lounge had The Bistro which to be honest had almost identical food. There was perhaps a smaller selection of breads and pastries, but it was very similar.Cathay Pacific The Bridge Bistro

The Coffee Loft was just past The Bistro.Cathay Pacific The Bridge Coffee Loft

 

Showers and Restrooms

The showers and restrooms were beautiful and well maintained. No issues for this lounge review.Cathay Pacific The Bridge Lounge RestroomThe Bridge Lounge Hong Kong Showers

Extras

The wifi worked with no issues while I was there for this lounge review.

 

Lounge Review Conclusion

The Bridge is yet another one of Cathay Pacific’s six outstanding lounges in the Hong Kong airport. I would say the quality of the food is above The Wing, and close to what is offered at The Pier and the Qantas lounge. While there isn’t anything that quite makes this lounge unique, everything about this lounge (the relaxing decor, the variety of tasty food and the beautiful showers) are all done very very well.
