Cathay Pacific has a lot of lounges in Hong Kong, but we decided to just go to the closest lounge with a first class section to our connecting flight, which happened to be the Pier. The Pier is undergoing renovations, though, so the first class lounge is closed, and they instead have a section of the business class lounged roped off for first class passengers.

That being said, the service in the first class area was very attentive. There was a man patrolling the “entrance” to the first class area, and there was a person dedicated to serving the very few of us who were seated in the first class area to get whatever we needed.

The Pier is quite large, and the lounge was pretty empty while we were there at night. I walked around to explore the food options, and they had some decent already-prepared food as well as a noodle bar, where I sampled the dan dan mien again.

The dan dan mien from this noodle bar was better than the one I got from the Cathay lounge at SFO, but still not exactly what I was craving…

What can I say, I'm a sucker for anything deep-fried. And dan dan mien.

After a 15-hour flight, a shower was at the top of my mind, and the shower rooms at the Pier are spacious and required no wait when I wanted one.

This lounge had fast wifi, lots of seating, decent hot food options, and good showers. What more could you want? The service in the first class section was also really top notch. They were constantly clearing plates when you were done, they were willing to fetch anything (like when my noodle buzzer buzzed, I didn’t even have a chance to get up as someone volunteered to get it for me), and they were always using pleasantries. I was definitely impressed with the service in this lounge for first class passengers.
