Whether you’re keeping your social distance or you’re in full isolation, it’s always nice to dream of better days and rooftop views
Hong Kong works hard and plays hard. And if there’s one thing this city loves (besides a good brunch) it’s a fabulous rooftop bar. So while we’re staying six feet away from everyone, we’re dreaming of the city’s best rooftop bars, the incredible views and strong cocktails.
Read on to find our picks for the five best rooftop bars in Hong Kong that we can’t wait to go back to.
Everyone knows that one of the best views of the city is from the top of California Tower. And now, you can get up there again, thanks to LKF Skydeck, the pop-up bar that’s taken over their famous rooftop. Take in a 270-degree view of the Hong Kong skyline, mountains and Victoria Harbour at this limited-time only bar. They’ve got killer drinks – of course – and a moreish snack menu too. And the best part? They have some of the best live music and DJs in town.
26/F California Tower, 30-32 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong; +852 2804 1668
Head to the top of H Queen’s, Hong Kong’s hottest arts and culture spot,
and take in the view from the Piqniq terrace with a delicious cocktail. This Le
Comptoir creation is actually the
city’s first rooftop guinguette, an outdoor café and restaurant
popular in France during the 18th century. They serve perfect French nibbles,
like meats and cheeses in adorable picnic baskets, and the space is decked out
with comfy bean bag chairs and even a
whimsical polka-dot pumpkin from Yayoi Kasuma.
27/F, H Queen’s, 80 Queen’s Road Central, Central; +852 5200 1683
We can’t say enough good things about SEVVA, the super swanky and quintessentially Hong Kong favourite. Head to the upper levels of Princes Building to take in their exceptional hospitality, and iconic views. This might just be one of our favourite terraces to soak in the city skyline, complimented with delicious, wholesome dishes and refreshing cocktails. It’s glamorous, it’s fabulous, it’s everything we love about Hong Kong.
25/F, Princes Building, 10 Chater Road, Central; +852 2573 1388
You don’t need to book a room to enjoy the beautiful views from The
Murray hotel. Their rooftop restaurant Popinjays is a sleek place to spend an evening watching the
world go by. The name refers to both a bird (a little nod
to the city’s resident cockatoos!) and a flamboyant and fashionable person,
which perfectly describes this vibrant venue. The restaurant is surrounded
by a 420 square meter
outdoor terrace, that’s the perfect space to sip on their
classic cocktails or maybe even nibble on some afternoon tea.
The Murray, Hong Kong, A Niccolo Hotel, 22 Cotton Tree Drive, Central; +852 3141 8888
If you absolutely have to leave Lan Kwai Fong, then you should be going to Komune. The relaxed terrace is perfect for whiling away an evening and enjoying a South Side sunset. The restaurant is part of Ovolo Southside and is an Instagrammers dream – complete with lush, colourful terrace and full wall mural in the attached restaurant. An evening at Komune always starts with a cocktail – they’ve only get the best, most passionate bartenders shaking up your drinks for the evening. Make sure you drink happy thoughts!
Ovolo Southside, 64 Wong Chuk Hang Rd, Wong Chuk Hang; +852 3460 8157
