Melco International Development plans to give Hong Kong’s Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Aberdeen Harbour a facelift, local media reports.
“Last time we had a major refurbishment was 15 years ago. Jumbo is one of the iconic structures in Hong Kong. We are looking at potentially revamping, doing a total revitalisation,” said chairman Lawrence Ho Yau-lung.
In March this year, the company sold a car park that serves guests of the restaurant for HK$500 million ($64 million), sparking speculation it planned to close the venue.
Ho said that was not the case, but gave no further details of the planned revamp. The restaurant was opened by his father, the casino tycoon Stanley Ho in 1976.
