If there’s anything Hong Kong has an abundance of, it’s spectacular views and you won’t have to travel far to get a bird’s-eye-view of the famous harbour and surrounding skyline.
When you’re ready to hit the town and strike a pose on a Hong Kong highrise, head to one of the city’s trendy rooftop bars and lounges for some intoxicating views.
Aptly named for its lofty 118 storey perch in the International Commerce Centre in Kowloon, Ozone has become one of the most popular aerial bars in Hong Kong. With its icy, blue bar hues, white granite and roomy outdoor terrace, the magnificent city views only add to the heady atmosphere.
Sit back and sample delicious Asian tapas or get into the groove at a late-night dance party. Ozone also serves nightly dinner and a Sunday brunch.
Address: Level 118, International Commerce Centre, 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon
Whether you’re on the ground, or one hundred storeys above it, Hong Kong’s striking landscape is dominated by two things – glittering skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour. At Eye Bar, the uninterrupted skyline and harbour views make for the perfect spot to watch the evening harbour light show.
Beside the views, Eye Bar is known for its weekday Happy Hour from 6 to 9 pm and long list of cocktails. Dine in the restaurant, or enjoy a drink on the outdoor patio overlooking Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island.
Address: 30/F iSquare, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
Sevva in Central
Located atop one of Hong Kong’s most iconic buildings, Sevva is more than just a rooftop bar. With its penthouse style atmosphere and elegant furnishings, this high-rise hangout is more like an exclusive club where you’d expect to find the who’s who.
Part artsy lounge, part tea house and five-star restaurant, Sevva’s ritzy vibe can be enjoyed on the outdoor patio, the jazzy Taste Bar, or the swanky Bankside Restaurant.
Harbourside Restaurant is the perfect lunch venue with delicious creations made fresh daily. Be sure to check out the cakes and baked goods at Ms. B’s Sweets. Apart from its desserts, visitors can marvel at the classic Venini chandelier that once hung in the British Embassy in Rome.
Address: Prince’s Building 25th Floor, 10 Chater Road, Central Hong Kong
Seafood Room in Causeway Bay
Hong Kong trams, or ‘ding dings’ as they are known locally, glide through the bustling shopping district.
At midday, the firing of the Noonday Gun adds an air of pomp and ceremony to the Causeway Bay shore. High above the din of the streets, the Seafood Room is causing a stir of its own, with tasty dishes and drinks to tempt all palates.
Accompanying the sweeping Hong Kong views from the 26th floor of Tower 535 is a sumptuous seafood display on ice where diners can select the catch they want. The 12-section menu includes such options like Carpaccio, Ceviche, Chinese dishes, pastas, meats and more.
Address: 26th Floor – Tower 535, 535 Jaffe Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
