Farewell to the Excelsior Hong Kong (and the Dickens Bar in particular)

Yes I know it's not strictly BA related, but for many years it has been the BA crew's home from home and as there are a few who frequent FT, I'm sure there are plenty of readers who have fond memories of staying at the Excelsior, and in particular the famous Dickens Bar.

Time and tide wait for no man, particularly in Hong Kong where nostalgia cannot stand in the way of commercial gain.

So, on 31st March 2019, the hotel will be no more.

Sad. So many great nights in there, often with newly arrived BA crew. Many tales to tell, but I'm too polite to share them on this forum.

Cheers to the Dickens. Thanks for the memories.
