Take your drinks sky high at these outdoor restaurants and rooftop bars in Hong Kong. Spiga, Sevva and Sugar are all popular (for good reason!), but there are also some rooftop spots that made our list you might not have tried…

One of the things this city owns is a great view. Whether you’re showing visiting guests the finest in town, or looking for a spot to sit and watch the world go by, these rooftop bars and outdoor restaurants are here to get the job done. Whatever you’re after (location, ambience or quality tipples), there really is something for everyone. Cheers to that!

Hong Kong rooftop bars cruise Hyatt Centric

Cruise – Relaxed rooftop bar in the Hyatt Centric, North Point

This North Point hotspot is quickly becoming a Team Sassy favourite. More than just another hotel bar, we love the casual, laid-back vibes of the rooftop terrace which boast spectacular views towards the eastern side of Victoria Harbour. The Tie Me Up is a refreshing take on a Thai Iced Tea (with a kick!) and we love that the bartenders haven’t forgotten about the mocktail lovers amongst us with the Southeast Fizz from the I’m Driving menu a firm favourite.

Sassy Mama tip: Order some delicious Thai-inspired bites while enjoying your cocktail on the terrace, or book dinner in the adjoining restaurant.

Cruise, 23/F, West Tower, Hyatt Centric Victoria Harbour Hong Kong, 1 North Point Estate Lane, North Point, Hong Kong, 3896 9898, [email protected], www.hyatt.com

Eyebar – Balcony terrace overlooking the Hong Kong skyline

Tucked in just behind The Peninsula in Tsim Sha Tsui, this 30/F rooftop bar is the perfect spot to take in views over the Hong Kong Island skyline while watching the helicopters come and go from the Pen’s helipad. The must-try cocktail is the signature Suzie Wong.

Eyebar, 30/F, iSquare, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2487 3988, www.elite-concepts.com


Ozone – The highest rooftop bar in the world!

No list of Hong Kong rooftop bars would be complete without mention of hyperbolic Ozone. Sitting atop the 118th floor of the ICC in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, you may even forget you are outdoors with the sky-high wrap-around glass. We like to secure a table in the late afternoon and watch the city transform into twinkling lights as the sun goes down.

OZONE, 118/F, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, 1 Austin Road West, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2263 2270, www.ritzcarlton.com


Portico at Spiga – Alfresco drinks in the heart of Central

Though this isn’t technically a rooftop bar, it has quickly become one of our favourite alfresco spots in Hong Kong. The relaxed ambience and desirable location (right by Central MTR, Exit D) provide Portico with a winning combination. Head outside to Portico for a cocktail, before commencing your Italian feast at Spiga.

Portico (at Spiga), LHT Tower Podium, 3/F, 31 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong, www.spiga.com.hk


sevva hong kong rooftop bar

Sevva – Sophisticated sky-high rooftop cocktails

This place is well-known for a reason. With a 360-degree balcony, the Sevva rooftop offers a front and centre view of surrounding skyscrapers and the Hong Kong harbour. The convenient location (slap bang in the middle of Central) offers a chic lounge area and award-winning cocktails.

Sevva, Prince’s Building, 25/F, Prince’s Building, 10 Chater Road, Central, Hong Kong, 2537 1388, www.sevva.hk


Skye – A hidden rooftop gem in Causeway Bay

Overlooking Victoria Park and with stunning harbour views, this rooftop bar of The Park Lane gets our vote for a sundowner after a long day of shopping in Causeway Bay!

Popinjays – An idyllic rooftop bar in Central Hong Kong

Popinjays is a rooftop dining destination in The Murray. Set on the top floor of the hotel, the restaurant serves a modern European-inspired menu, along with an impressive beverage selection (we love The Aviary Collection cocktails!). While the restaurant has stunning floor-to-ceiling windows, a must-visit is the 420 square metre wrap-around alfresco terrace, complete with inviting lounge chairs, comfortable couches and unparalleled views of The Peak, Central Hong Kong and the surrounding parks.
