Whether you want to recline by the pool with a cocktail in hand, or enjoy drinks with a view, Hong Kong has a plethora of rooftop bars that will be calling your name this summer. From tasty bar snacks by top chefs to lounges with sofas bigger than your whole apartment, let’s take a look at some of the best from the city.
Offering a bird’s eye view of the Hong Kong skyline, Sevva is one of the hottest rooftop bars in the city. Located next to Central MTR station, Sevva has an enormous penthouse terrace that has a 360 degree view of the city. The decor changes depending on the season and their music is always up to date. Designed by Bonnie Gokson, Sevva is where the cool kids go to hang out on sultry summer evenings.
Located inside the Ritz-Carlton, Ozone is entirely open-air decorated with low-level lighting and black marble. It may look a little arty-farty but the outdoor lounge has an unparalleled view of Victoria Harbor. Their cocktails come from Teresa Moon, one of the world’s leading mixologists, and their menu has plenty of delicious snacks to nibble on whilst you savor the view.
Felix is almost too cool for school, with it’s modern style of cooking and classy interior. If you want to indulge in some European cuisine, inspired by the top chefs of the continent, then Felix is the place to go. Combining the West with the East, thanks to the Japanese influence on the food, Felix also has an outstanding selection of wines.
If fine dining is what you require, then Aqua Spirit has a world-class menu. The bar itself has floor to ceiling windows which give you a no holds barred view over the city and inside, you can choose your seating from Western style sofas to Japanese sunken seating. Their cocktails are delicious and cannot be found anywhere else.
Just as the name suggests, Armani Prive is a beautiful lounge with lighting that makes you feel like you have stepped into a psychedelic dream. Their cocktail menu is extensive, alongside their food menu, which features Italian and Asian delicacies. The terrace is enormous and you will feel like you are starring in your own private version of La Dolce Vita.
Fu Lu Shou is incredibly trendy but retains a distinct flavor of Hong Kong. The menu is locally based, showcased by the outdoor kitchen, al fresco dining options and Asian inspired cocktails. Interestingly, there are red swinging seats as well as sofas, set off by beautiful murals and artwork. Slightly more casual than the rest, Fu Lu Shou is a great choice if you want a lowkey night out or an after work wind down.
Two Seventy Degrees Rooftop Bar
The views of the city harbour here are spectacular. Two Seventy Degrees is laidback, with a reasonably priced menu and relaxing music playing long into the night. Their cocktails are delicious and if you get peckish, they offer platters of cold cuts.
