Not lacking in the gorgeous waterfront department, Hong Kong boasts many restaurants and bars that provide a winning blend of great food, killer drinks and amazing panoramic views. But these five are The HUNT Hong Kong writer, Grace Entry‘s, picks for a fantastic, sparkling night out.
Right in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong is Azure. It’s a stylist sanctuary harboring award-winning bartenders, a contemporary menu and a 270-degree outlook; a convenient location if your post-dinner plan includes partying the night away.
Closer to shore is Watermark Seafood Bar and Grill, located on the pier in Central. It’s unobstructed floor-to-ceiling vista of Victoria Harbour paired with a seafood menu makes for a romantic dinner affair.
Not too far away is Grace’s go-to for when out-of-town mates visit: Café Gray Deluxe in Admiralty. Serving quintessential European cuisine with modern flair, the ambiance is sophisticated yet laid-back and the sweeping views are mesmerizing.
Beyond Central and offering slightly different scenery is casual yet chic Sugar, with a stretching landscape of Kowloon, Tsim Tsa Tsui East and the water. The tapas and drinks here are just as impressive as what you see.
Finally, off the island, is fine-dining Japanese establishment Tenku RyuGin. Make a night of it and hop on the Red Star Ferry from Central just before the clock strikes 8pm to catch the light show. Then, head to the dizzying heights of this restaurant for an unforgettable gastronomic experience with a bird’s eye view of the island. Not advertised for those suffering from vertigo.
