Hans and Rikard at Wooloomooloo Rooftop Bar, Hong Kong
If you want to enjoy a big city in the best possible way, visiting rooftop bars is the way to go. Breathtaking views, refreshing cocktails, tasty food and harmonious atmosphere are some of the benefits a nice roof terrace can offer. The crew from The Rooftop Guide have visited over 500 rooftops from all over the world in the last 2 years. Here’s their 5 favorite ones in Hong Kong. And here’s a complete list of all the best rooftop bars in HK.
  1. Wooloomooloo
    A luxurious rooftop located right in the city center of Hong Kong. Here you’ll find a top-notch steakhouse and an outdoor terrace with one of the best views in HK. The steakhouse restaurant is very fancy and with premium food. The terrace is more relaxed and with a very chilled atmosphere. From here you’ll get a glans of Happy Valley, Victoria Harbor, Kowloon and all the skyscrapers surrounding the area. Come here in the afternoon for a calmer atmosphere and during the evening if you like to party.
  2. S E V V A
    Perhaps the fanciest rooftop you can find in HK. Dress for success and you’ll fell right at home here. The best thing here is the proximity to the nearby skyscrapers, which creates a mighty feeling. Quite expensive prices, but worth every penny considering the high quality you get of both food and drinks. Make sure to book a lounge place on the terrace to get out as much as possible from the place. The lounge areas are super nice and with sofas to settle down in.
  3. Ozone at The Ritz Carlton
    The best place in the world for a Sunday brunch. A “must do” if in Hong Kong. The Sunday Champagne brunch is a memory for life. Or how about free flow of Dom Pérignon, fantastic seafood, delicious steaks, mini burgers, desserts, cocktails and much more. Everything here oozes of quality. Make sure to book your table in advance. Also, ask for a table at the outdoor terrace to get the best possible view. Ozone is the world’s highest bar at an altitude of 480 meters situated at the 118 th floor of the super luxurious 5-star hotel, Ritz Carlton.
  4. SKYE at Hotel de Park Lane
    Maybe the coolest bar counter you can find in HK. A big round bar counter with lots of seating’s surrounding the terrace. There’re also some lounge areas for the bigger companies. The two best things about this place is the fantastic view and the wide range of cocktails. The view is breathtaking over Victoria Harbor and Kowloon. Make sure to come here during afternoon/evening when darkness falls. The colors from the skyscrapers creates a wonderful view.
  5. Ce La Vi
    A perfect rooftop if you like to party. Live DJs, a trendy crowd and one of Hong Kong’s best skyline views, makes this one of the hippest places to party at. Ce la Vi has a large terrace with booth lounge furniture’s, dinner seats, a jacuzzi and classic bar chairs. The drinks and Asian cuisine are super good, which makes this a nice place to come to during all hours of the day. Ce la Vi is a worldwide rooftop phenomena, that also can be found in for example Singapore. The most characteristic things about Ce La Vi is the large terrace and the fabulous party feeling surrounding the whole place.
