Back for the second year, the pop-up runs from 27th January through 27th February with a signature menu of cocktails and Chinese New Year treats as well as vibrant art and décor celebrating the occasion.
Tying in with Junior’s ever-evolving interiors, Rémy Martin and the Lunar New Year occasion come to life in the brightly coloured mural wall stretching around the seating area of the space.
