Wondered Where to Ring in the Night? 5 Unmissable Rooftop Bars in Hong Kong

 

There are few cities in the world with urban architecture as aesthetic as that of Hong Kong. An urban jungle with iconic skyscrapers, mountains and the harbour as a backdrop, the city certainly offers incredible views!

 

Hong Kong hosts some of the world’s most elegant rooftop bars and some of the best views in the world. So if you want to sit back, relax and witness the beauty of Hong Kong, look no further. Sit on top of the world and enjoy your evening in company with the twinkling stars and the Symphony of Lights too!

 

Our list takes into account convenience of accessibility from the business district as well, making these some of the best places to catch up over drinks after a long day at work.

 

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse

Given that Wooloomoolo is located in Wan Chai, you may wonder just how we think it could be a relaxing experience. But make no mistake; if you want some of the best steaks in the city, along with a glass of fine wine… while enjoying a magnificent view of the night lights… there are few places better than Wooloomooloo. 

 

Located on the 31st floor, the bar has low lighting and comfortable seats and offers an incredible view of the city, including that of the iconic Happy Valley Racecourse! 

 

The Wooloomooloo Group also has restaurants in Kowloon.

 

Address: 31/F & Rooftop The Hennessy, 256 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai

 

Ce La Vi

 

CÉ LA VI

 

CÉ LA VI may be known as a glamorous party spot in Hong Kong, but what many don’t know is that it’s also one of the best sunset spots in the city.

 

Located on top of California Tower, it has a stunning 360-degree view of the city. Every night, DJs play great house music, with the exception of Tuesday Nights, which are dedicated ‘Cuban Nights’. CÉ LA VI is notable for having a diverse crowd and an outstanding atmosphere. Try their cocktails!

 

Address: 25/F, California Tower, 32 D’Aguilar Street, Central

 

Honi Honi

Want to escape the urban jungle rather than embrace it? Then Honi Honi is the place for you. With a tropical-themed terrace garden, it transports you miles away from the city.

 

Given that it’s located on the third floor, it’s not surprising that Honi Honi does not boast its view! Come here for eclectic cocktails, diverse crowd, unique ambience, and to get away from the city for an evening.

 

The Tiki terrace goes perfectly with a glass of rum (of which they have a wide variety) or even a glass of exotic Polynesian-inspired cocktails. If you’re in a large group, try the Pineapple Punch or Around The World drinks.

 

Address: 3/F Sompteux Central, 52 Wellington Street, Central

 

Eyebar

 

Eyebar

 

Eyebar has to rank as one of Hong Kong’s best rooftop bars. With a great view of the Symphony of Lights, Eyebar is the perfect spot to unwind with a great cocktail or beer, if that’s your poison.

 

Sunset Hours on weekdays is the best time to go for beer drinkers as you can avail attractive discounts and promotions. Located on the 30th floor of the iSQUARE shopping mall, Kowloon, Eyebar’s simple ambience serves as a foil to the great views.

 

Address: 30/F, iSQUARE Shopping Mall, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon

 

Felix at the Peninsula

Interestingly, Felix became famous because of the men’s bathroom. Bizarre, isn’t it?! Men visiting the necessary at Felix get a magnificent view of Victoria Harbour via huge glass windows in front of the urinals.

 

But, thankfully for the ladies, it isn’t the urinals that are the real attraction. Walk into the Peninsula to witness a vast, dimly lit space with a unique ambience and jaw-dropping spiral staircase. When you sit in the American bar, you get a view of the Harbour from a more conventional setting – and one that’s more conducive to conversation!

 

Address: 28/F, Salisbury Road, Kowloon

 

Since Hong Kong has no dearth of rooftop bar options, check out this list’s Honourable Mentions too:

 

This list is by no means exhaustive – given the range of options available in the city, it can’t be! So take this as a starting point. Go out and explore!
