18 May The Best of Yardbird and Sunday’s Grocery on The Lawn

The Upper House, in collaboration with celebrated local restaurant Yardbird and curated convenience store Sunday’s Grocery, is proud to announce a unique and exclusive pop-up at The Lawn for three months.


Chef Matt Abergel of Yardbird offers The Upper House guests a special snack menu featuring Yardbird and Sunday’s Grocery classics on the hotel’s lush and green space, The Lawn. Guests can also indulge in Fried Chicken, Katsu Sando and Rice Cakes, whilst enjoying the curated drinks list by Yardbird’s beverage team, Elliot Faber and Raphael Holzer.  The list includes Hunter High, Yardbird White Russian, Whisky Lemonade, Jumbo Ozaki, Sunday’s Sake and Sunday’s Shochu, amongst others.

This pop-up is the first of its kind and is meant to bring the tastes and spirit of Yardbird and Sunday’s Grocery to the guests of The Upper House. Supported by Nike, the pop-up team will be fitted with the latest apparel and footwear from the NikeLab Essentials collection.

To celebrate this special collaboration, a launch party will be held at The Lawn on 25 March from 7pm to 10pm, where invited guests will have a chance to experience Yardbird in a unique environment.  The pop-up is open from Thursday to Saturday, 6:00pm – 10:30pm, and Sunday 3:00pm – 10:30pm.

“Yardbird has been the fun and secret haven for exquisite Japanese dishes in Hong Kong since its opening 6 years ago. We are so excited to have this collaboration and bring our unique hospitality concepts together.” said Marcel Thoma, General Manager of The Upper House.
