The ultimate guide to going out in HK

We’ve put together a selection of Hong Kong’s most exciting places to eat and drink, along with a few other suggestions, for those heading to this week’s HKTDC fair.

As the industry descends on Asia’s most important drinks trading centre for the annual Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair, we’ve been busy unearthing the best and most innovative places for food and drink enthusiasts.

Among these are the top places to sip Champagne, savour Scotch, or enjoy cocktails as well as wine by the glass.

Then there’s the many restaurants to choose from, including the most highly rated outlets for French, Italian, American or Cantonese cooking.

Finally, we’ve brought you a range of places renowned for their views, as well as a list of bars where you can enjoy a cigar.

Meanwhile, for fair visitors, the exhibition runs from Thursday 8 to Saturday 10 November at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai.

Among the many tastings and events, you might want to head to the Branded Spirits stand to meet Miss Mexico, who has flown over to promote Tequila Correlejo.

Or you can view the world’s largest bottle of Champagne from Armand de Brignac, which holds the equivalent of 40 standard bottles.

The Lawn at Café Gray

And don’t forget to swing by the drinks business stand at 3-CON 005 and pick up the latest edition of the drinks business Hong Kong, our magazine for the Asian wine and spirits trade.

In the meantime, you can also brush up on the latest developments in the city’s vinous scene with our top ten Hong Kong wine trends.

1. Wines by the glass

For those searching for a place to sample wine in Hong Kong, there are a wide range of serious bars and restaurants serving an eclectic selection of by the glass.

Tastings Wine Bar

California Vintage

This open-fronted wine bar works closely with various family-owned wineries in California. Expect close to 80 different West Coast wines available in tasting or full-glass pours.

77 Wyndham Street, Central, 852 2525 9808


Tastings offers 40 different wines by the glass. The bottles are all carefully culled from around the globe and are rotated on a regular basis so that there’s always something new to try.

Yuen Yick Building, 27 & 29 Wellington Street, Central, 852 2523 6282,

The Press Room

Opened by a team of wine aficionados, this modern brasserie offers an affordable, all-French selection.

108 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, 852 2525 3444,

2. Bars with a view

If Hong Kong has one USP, it is the iconic harbour. Bars with a vantage point over either the Hong Kong or Kowloon waterfronts – or other memorable Hong Kong cityscapes – are at a premium.

Ozone Bar


At 118 floors above the new(ish) West Kowloon development, Ozone is officially the highest bar in the world – the only other way to get a view of Hong Kong like this would be to drink in a helicopter.

With a terrace facing Hong Kong Island –which includes a corner sofa requiring a HK$15,000 minimum spend) – it’s definitely worth the trip up to the top of Hong Kong’s tallest building, the International Commerce Centre (ICC), in its ear-popping elevators.

On clear nights the vista is jaw-dropping, but there’s a drawback: on Hong Kong’s frequently smoggy days, the view is quite obscured and the bar’s décor itself isn’t much of a consolation prize.

Expect to pay a slight premium for the unique vantage point.

Ritz-Carlton Hotel, ICC, 1 Austin Road West, Kowloon. +852 2263 2270


For many years, Downtown Central has had a baffling paucity of good watering holes, and while the trek to nearby drinking mecca Lan Kwai Fong was hardly arduous, there has been nothing to match the glamour of the city’s CBD.

Step forward Bonnie Gokson, doyenne of Hong Kong dining and owner of Sevva (pronounced “savour”), whose bar and restaurant on the top floor of Prince’s Building offers a unique view of the city, from the towering Bank of China building and HSBC headquarters overlooking Statue Square in the east, to the Kowloon skyline across the harbour and  Central’s office-building jumble to the west, all to be savoured from Sevva’s wraparound terrace.

Prince’s Building, 6-14A Chater Road, Central, Hong Kong. +852 2537 1388

Café Gray

Usually seen by Hong Kong’s drinkers as just a thoroughfare between Wan Chai and Central and Lan Kwai Fong/Soho, Admiralty’s hotel bars and mall restaurants have never really offered much out of the ordinary.

But Café Gray in the recently opened Upper House hotel has changed all that. The product of local architect Andre Fu, the bar is the brainchild of New York-based chef Gray Kunz, with an emphasis on style and class.

Located on the 49 floor of the hotel, Café Gray has distinct areas for dining and drinking, and welcomes a lively but sophisticated happy hour crowd who come to see dusk falling over the spectacular view.

The Upper House, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong. +852 3968 1106

3. Steakhouses

In years gone by, the humble steak might’ve been scoffed at as belonging to a more Frank-Sinatra, three-martini-lunch era.

Strip House

They’ve come a long way since those Mad Men-style connotations were formed, and in the last few years, around the world, they’ve been making a powerful comeback.

Hong Kong is no exception, and as a city that regularly tops lists of influential financial hubs, its steakhouses are the perfect setting for an alpha-male meal, but they can be remarkably intimate, too.

Strip House

Chef Harlan Goldstein’s little sister to his more European dining flagship, Gold, this is one steakhouse that has been designed to excite. “Strip House is a 1940’s bordello, a real whorehouse,” the chef said. “I’ve exactly recreated a strip club [from that era].”

With red velvet curtains, low lighting and the classics playing in the background, there is an intimacy – and naughtiness – to the joint. With some careful interior design and a solid concept to stay faithful to, Goldstein has risen above the wood-panelling, cigar-bar vibe that is the hallmark of most steak-focused restaurants.

That’s not to say the experience ends at the atmosphere. “I concentrate on prime beef and really great appetisers,” Goldstein says, along with excellent sides (like his Kick-Ass Mac and Cheese) and killer cocktails with names like The Pole Dancer.

The steaks themselves are, of course, the main reason to stop by and as one would expect from a New Yorker, the Strip is king. Available in a 12oz and a full 16oz, the kitchen clearly has had plenty of practice cooking these wonderful cuts and the taste and consistency are perfect.

Strip House, 5/F, Grand Progress Building, 15 Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong, Tel: +852 2521 8638


One of Hong Kong’s more recent flirtations with the celebrity chef tag, omnipresent Italian-American Mario Batali gets in on Hong Kong’s steak boom by lending his name to the newly-opened Carnevino, part of the Dining Concepts group and sharing quarters – almost – with his sister project Lupa, which resides below the steakhouse is the L Place.

The group has done well in promoting the Italian steakhouse concept (see their other offering, Bistecca, below, along with Causeway Bay’s Manzo), but this is the first time Dining Concepts founder Sandeep Sekhri has called in the big guns.

The award-winning steakhouse from Las Vegas joins the fray and Batali, along with his partner Joe Bastianich, seek to deliver a “premier steak experience.” Seeking to replicate their Vegas success, the overall aesthetic is imported and the concept is warmth, with marble, leather and wood touches.

Using only the highest quality beef, superior ingredients, and a global wine selection enables the pair to “let the ingredients shine and speak for themselves.”

Leading the kitchen team are a pair of Batali’s proteges, Corporate Chef Zach Allen and Executive Chef Eli Anderson, who both relocated from Vegas to be a part of this ambitious Hong Kong project.

Carnevino, 5/F, LHT Tower, 31 Queens Road Central, Central, Hong Kong, Tel: +852 2352 7700

Blue Butcher

One of the newest names on Hong Kong’s steak scene, and brought to diners by the people that are introducing new dining rules to Hong Kong. Blue Butcher hopes to do to steak what their other outlets, Yardbird and Brickhouse have done for yakitori, and tacos, respectively – inject them with a bit of hipster credibility.

The steak comes in a variety of cuts, two of which have to be ordered a couple of days in advance, and the signature 14oz wagyu rib eye is dry-aged in-house.

The Butcher has a bit more of a varied menu than some of its more established competitors, but doesn’t come cheap. Still, as an advertising campaign of yore once put it, some things should be reassuringly expensive.

Blue Butcher’s interiors could be –and indeed have been – described as ‘New York dining’ and shared tables are a feature. It’s deliberately rough and ready looking, but don’t be fooled into thinking that was left to chance. Expect prime cuts here in a different, more relaxed, informal setting.

Blue Butcher, 108 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong, Tel: +852 2613 9286

4. Cocktail Bars

Hong Kong has no shortage of places to drink late into the night but we’ve picked out a handful of venues below that offer something a little different, be it the flairing skills or probation speakeasy style setting.

Lily bar


Enjoy a tipple and a show at this cosy, tucked away cocktail lounge. The mixologists show off cool flair tricks behind the bar including juggling and – if you’re lucky – flaming liqueurs. The theatrics usually happen later in the evening but that shouldn’t stop you from dropping by earlier for one of +852’s deliciously inventive drinks. Definitely try the Szechuan Chocolate Martini, which marries sweet and spicy in sippable form. Other recommendations include the juniper gin-based Boosma Sour, Orange Plum Daiquiri and a Christmassy Gingerbread Bellini.

2 Glenealy, Central, 2537 3281

Honi Honi Tiki Cocktail Lounge

Hong Kong gets in on the Tiki revival thanks to this newly opened cocktail lounge. Inspired by classic Tiki bars such as San Francisco’s Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar, Honi Honi’s seasoned bartender Max Traverse shakes up a wide array of tropical cocktails that’ll put you in the holiday spirit. Get started on timeless creations like the Mai Tai and Pina Colada, or go for one of Traverse’s house specials such as the Maori Spring Punch made from vodka, fresh watermelon, Thai chillies and lemongrass. Of course, Honi Honi also boasts resort-like digs to match the cocktails so kick back, relax and enjoy your drink in this Polynesian paradise.

3/F, 52 Wellington St, Central, 2353 0885;


Opened in 2010, this Prohibition Era-inspired cocktail den remains one of the hottest watering holes in the city. Modelled after supper clubs and speakeasies that flourished at the beginning of the twentieth century, Lily’s old-school ethos trickles into its repertoire of classic cocktail recipes done with a contemporary edge. The Old Fashioned here is made with premium 23-year-old Ron Zacapa rum while Caipiroskas are flavoured with fresh, seasonal fruits sourced from the markets. Aside from the solid libations list, Lily serves gussied up bar bites well past midnight, making it a popular spot for late night revelers.

5/F & 6/F, LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham St, Central, 2810 6166;


Looking to sample something Italian to complement a bottle of Barolo? Well, Hong Kong is home to plenty of excellent restaurants devoted to a range of cuisines from across Italy.

Otto e Mezzo

As previously reported by the drinks business, there’s the formality of the Grand Hyatt’s Grissini or the more relaxed feeling of Doppio Zero, as well as the extravagance of Otto e Mezzo – the restaurant boasts a cellar containing over 2,000 bottles of Italy’s finest wines to complement its Michelin-starred cooking.

For a full list of db’s top 10 suggestions click here, while below are three of the best. 

Doppio Zero

Don’t come here if you’re looking for a flashy dining experience; Doppio Zero is all about casual and comforting nonna’s fare done with plenty of heart.

But aside from paying tribute to traditional Italian cooking, executive chef Jake Addeo also perks up the menu with innovative, Asian-inspired twists.

Try the spaghetti neri, for example, which has Thai chillies, scallion and baby cuttlefish decorating strands of homemade pasta. There’s also the “yin yang” affogato, which contains milk tea gelato, espresso and peanut butter cookie.

G/F, The Pemberton, 22 Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan, 2851 0682;

Grissini Restaurant

A meal at Grissini always starts with its namesake breadsticks, which are served warm from the oven. The rest of the menu stays loyal to traditional Italian flavours and the chefs let fresh ingredients shine in dishes such as stuffed zucchini flowers with buffalo mozzarella cream and chestnut flour pasta with Genova-style basil pesto potatoes.

The stunning, harbourside restaurant also offers more than a dozen Italian wines by the glass as well as an extensive list of reds, white and bubblies by the bottle.

2/F, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, 1 Harbour Rd, Wan Chai, 2584 7722

Otto e Mezzo

There’s a reason why Otto e Mezzo deserves three Michelin stars. Chef Umberto Bombana (popularly known as “the king of white truffles”) combines the comforting rusticity of traditional Italian cuisine with the freshest ingredients and modern aesthetics.

The handcrafted pastas are flawless with al dente bite and delicious, eggy aromas. Order the silky ravioli that are stuffed with burrata cheese then decorated with tomatoes and olives.

The restaurant is also equipped with an ageing room that stores some of the finest cheeses and hams, as well as a wine cellar filled with more than 2,000 bottles. If you really want to spoil yourself, plan your visit to the restaurant in October and try Bombana’s famous white truffle menu.

Shop 202, 2/F, Alexandra House, 18 Chater Rd, Central, 2537 8859;


If you have something to celebrate, nothing fits the bill quite like Champagne and when it comes to finding the perfect location, Hong Kong residents are spoiled for choice.

Sky Lounge

You can see a full list from db on the top 10 Champagne bars in the city by clicking here, or scan the below for a few highlights.

1. The Krug Room

An evening at The Mandarin Oriental’s tucked-away, private dining room will cost you, but the experience is definitely worth the price. Seating up to 12 guests, the intimate space looks into the hotel’s central kitchen, allowing guests unobstructed views of chef Uwe Opocensky and his team at work. Foodwise, the multicourse set menu (starting from nine courses) is dictated by Opocensky’s whims and may include dishes such as tomato “tea” and vegetable “flower pot”. Basic dinner includes two glasses of Krug Grand Cuvée per guest, but you can always upgrade and add Krug Vintage 1998 or Krug Rosé to the evening. Feel free to indulge. After all, outside of France, this place does boast the most extensive selection of Krug Champagnes in the world.

1/F, The Mandarin Oriental, 5 Connaught Road, Central, 2825 4014


This intimate space may not offer the most extensive or exciting sparkling wine selection but it does win points for being the most laid-back and reasonably priced Champagne bar in town. The Elgin Street venue offers seven bubblies by the glass, as well as a decent selection of reds, whites and sparkling wines. They also do a range of Champagne-based cocktails, but it’s best to stay away from those and just focus on the real stuff. For a chilledout, casual evening, grab a high table on the small, entrance-side terrace and sip your bubbly while you watch the scenes of Soho. Oh, and don’t forget to order the excellent cheese platter while you’re at it.

27 Elgin Street, Soho, 2810 0005;

Sky Lounge

Tucked behind the Sheraton hotel’s famous Oyster &Wine Bar restaurant, Sky Lounge offers a relaxed environment and stunning harbour views to complement its impressive collection of international wines. The bar does a neat selection of delicious cocktails and also boasts around 20 different wines on Enomatic dispensers, but if it’s Champagne you’re after, the well-stocked venue carries Piper Heidsieck, among other renowned labels. Aside from being a great spot for late-evening drinks, we also recommend this classy bar and lounge for afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly.

18/F, Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers, 20 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, 2369 1111

7. French restaurants

Hong Kong diners are certainly spoiled for choice when seeking a classy French restaurant and here are just a few of the best.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Joel Robuchon is famous for a reason. He’s one of the most decorated chefs in the world and his three Michelin-starred outpost in Hong Kong lives up to his reputation. The L’Atelier dining room offers a modern gastronomic experience where guests are perched around the open kitchen in a similar style to a Japanese sushi counter. For a classic fine-dining experience, head up to Le Jardin, where the plush interiors look out to the restaurant’s rooftop garden. Like all other Robuchon outlets in the world, the wine list here is designed to impress and still holds the record for being the most comprehensive wine list in the whole of Hong Kong.

Shop 401, 4/F, The Landmark, 16 Des Voeux Road Central, Central, 2166 9000;


Amber made headlines when it became the only restaurant in China to be listed in World’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2011. But chef Richard Ekkebus and his team has been wowing diners long before the announcement. After all, the food at Amber has always been impressive – clever and contemporary without ever being overly complicated. It’s things like the playful foie gras lollipops and sea urchin encased in lobster jell-O that make this restaurant memorable. Of course, the carefully selected wine list doesn’t hurt.

7/F, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental,15 Queen’s Rd Central,2132 0066;


This three-tiered establishment is operated by Singaporean-based restaurant group Les Amis. Designed by executive chef Sebastien Lepinoy, the menu plays with modern French and Mediterranean flavours with a few Asian-inspired flourishes. You’ll find creative things like Inawina udon served alongside lobster bouillon and fresh ginger. If you’re not sure what the go for, try the épicurien set menu, which includes exceptional dishes such as langoustine with Hokkaido sea urchin and potato salad garnished with osciètre caviar. Cépage also boasts an award-winning wine list that’s known for its reasonable markup prices.

23 Wing Fung St, Wan Chai, 2861 3130

8. Cantonese

From Michelin stars to snake seasonality, here’s a (very) quick tour of Hong Kong’s top Cantonese restaurants.

Hoi King Heen

Hoi King Heen

Located in the basement level of the InterContinental Grand Stanford Hotel, Hoi King Heen is often regarded as one of the city’s finest Cantonese restaurants. Dishes are understated but brilliant, starting with incredibly tender braised short ribs plated with sweet papaya, and chef Leung Fai-hung’s award-winning pan-fried glutinous rice served with chicken and taro puffs. The chefs’ carefully honed skills also shine through in delicate dishes such as crab claw steamed in huadiao wine egg whites and gem-like winter melon balls, which are hollowed out in the centre and filled with preserved black olive leaves.

B2/F, InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong, 70 Mody Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, 2731 2883

The Chairman

The menu pays tribute to traditional Chinese recipes that rely on premium ingredients and expert culinary know-how. The chefs hand-source the freshest, daily seafood from fish markets and only use free-range chicken and pork from reputable local farms. Most sauces and marinades are made in-house without the use of MSG or chemical additives. It’s a lot more work but the results are truly worth it. Recommended dishes include smoked baby pigeon scented with Dragon Well tea leaves and fresh whole crab steamed with aged shaoxing wine and fragrant chicken oil.

18 Kau U Fong, Central, 2555 2202;

Yung Kee

This Hong Kong institution is famous all over for its signature roast goose. The bird boasts crisp, lacquered skin and delectably gamey meat that’s designed to be dipped in sweet plum sauce. The dish is so sought after that the owners created a souvenir-appropriate version that’s specially packed for easy shipping. Aside from the goose, other barbecued meats and fresh seafood dishes are also recommended. The restaurant is also equipped with a VIP room on the fourth floor, but those who want a truly special experience should reserve a table at Yung’s Club on the eight floor. It’s the most upscale venue in the Yung Kee building and offers premium dishes that aren’t served in the main dining hall.

32-40 Wellington St, Central, 2522 1624;

9. Whisky bars

Hong Kong hosts an impressive selection of dens for drams and below are just some of the best whisky bars for enthusiasts.

Angel’s Share

You can click here for a full list of the ten top places to drink Scotch in the city, or see this shortened selection below.

Angel’s Share

This recent addition to the Hong Kong whisky scene is certainly a note worthy one, with rave reviews from all who go there.

With over 100 whiskies from around the world, there is plenty to choose from, including a discontinued 15-year-old Bowmore Mariner and a 1977 Glenlivet from specialty importers and auctions.

But it’s not just about Scotch, Angel’s Share also boasts a sizeable collection of Japanese whiskies. While Suntroy and Nikka make up the lion’s share of those offered, there are some other highly interesting pieces, such as the 15-year-old Ichiro’s Malt Folks Bottling which comes from Japan’s now-defunct Hanyu distillery.

The main star of the show, however, is the full sized oak barrel in the centre of the bar with 180 litres of single cask 20 years old Macallan 1990. Whisky is drawn directly from the barrel to drink. Not to worry if you’re not a Macallan fan, the barrel will be rotated with others over the course of the year to showcase the different regions of Scotland.

As if this was not reason enough to visit the bar, their impressive gastropub menu offers some expertly prepared English-themed dishes, included a mouth-wateringly good battered fish and chips with a tomato and whisky relish.

2/F, Amber Lodge, 23 Hollywood Road, Central,Hong Kong.  +852 2805 8388


Set in the Langham Place Hotel, the new whisky bar Tokoro is every inch as slick as you would hope.

Upon entering there’s a stunning wall of whisky gleaming invitingly behind the bar, with over 80 different options, hailing from a variety of locations, including Scotland, Ireland, the US and Japan. This, however, is only the start, and the bar is intent on expanding its selection.

One of its really innovative points, however, is its offer of 48 “crystal lockers” available for clients to lock away their favourite whisky, storing it for up to six months, adding a real sense of exclusivity to drinking there. All the lockers are numbered with the lucky number 8 somewhere in the number, with prices starting at HK$888, going up to HK$8,888 for the luckiest locker of all, number 888.

General manager Shaun Campbell explained, “Langham Place is all about leading guests through stimulating and innovative experiences. From the fun and interactive whisky flavour maps on the glass windows to the creative pairing of amber liquids with Japanese Robatayaki, sushi and maki rolls, pata negra and our homemade gourmet chocolates, we continuously surprise our guests”. Sounds pretty good to us!

Given the proximity of Tokoro to the top notch restaurant Robatayaki, it’s hardly surprising that there are food and whisky dinners on a frequent basis.

The Blck Brd

No sports. No TV screens. No karaoke. No DJs. No service charge. No ‘mixologists’. No riff-raff. No dress code. Absolutely no f*!?ing jazz.

That, in the patron’s own words, is what DOESN’T go on in The Blck Brd.

What DOES happen, instead, is undivided attention between the barman and your drink, and then you and your drink. Or you and your friends and your drink. Basically, it allows you to enjoy whatever it was you came there to enjoy, be it a quite drink with friends or one (or more) of the myriad whiskies on offer there. They are particularly proud (and with reason) of their Bourbon selection which includes Makers Mark, Knob Creek and Woodford Reserve, Baker’s 7 Year, Booker’s 7 Year and Basil Hayden 8 Year as well as Blanton’s Original Single Barrel, uncut & bottled straight from each single barrel.

As part of a move to help more people learn more about whiskies, the team at Blck Brd host laid back, informal tastings of different houses.

For those less dedicated to whisky, there is a broad and carefully put together wine list covering both the Old andNew World. Similarly, a good selection of ales and some substantial and tasty bar snacks caters for all your needs.

10. And finally… cigar bars

The Hong Kong climate lends itself for much of the year to balmy evenings sitting out on one of the city’s many rooftop terraces, and while you’re there, enjoying a cigar.

The Lawn

As previously reported by the drinks business, since the indoor smoking ban was introduced in 2009, these venues have come into their own as a haven for cigar lovers to enjoy their hobby in a comfortable, relaxed environment, often rounded off by a glass of something special.

After all, from a bar or restaurant’s point of view – and even as an increasing number of drinks brands are quickly realising – cigars and high end drinks not only complement each other nicely, but generate a useful additional revenue stream.

Click here for a full list of Hong Kong’s key cigar bars, or see below for a brief selection of places to have a puff.

1. Bo Innovation

Welcome to the home of “X-treme Chinese cuisine”, where the self-styled “Demon Chef” Alvin Leung gives a molecular, rock ‘n’ roll twist to his dishes. Try his take on traditional xiao long bao, or try a fresh take on simple ingredients such as beetroot or scallops. There’s a serious drinks list to match the ambitious food and, with seating for 22 outside, guests are encouraged to round off their meal with a cigar from the in-house list of Cohiba and Montecristo selections.

Shop 13, 2/F,
J Residence, 60 Johnston Road, Wan Chai, Tel: +852 2850 8371


Nestled between the Armand de Brignac Champagne and Methuselah of Belvedere vodka on Dragon-i’s drinks list you’ll find a collection of cigars to round off your experience at the venue which claims to sell more Champagne than any other club in South East Asia. Whether you’re settled in one of the plush sofas in the bar and dining area or celebrity spotting out on the terrace, this is the place to see and be seen.

7. The Lawn

In a city where space is at a premium, the proliferation of rooftop bars in Hong Kong is an understandable phenomenon. But how many in this urban jungle can offer a grassy lawn to lie back on? That’s the draw at boutique hotel The Upper House, which hides a sixth floor secret garden complete with bean bags, Chinese-style parasols and, of course, a cocktail bar. Order a Pimms, light a cigar, lie back and relax for Hong Kong’s stylish take on the English picnic.
