Sitting pretty on the top floor of Causeway Bay’s V Point building, Alto is designed by the legendary Tom Dixon and boasts sophisticated and extraordinary interiors. However, possibly its best USP is its breathtaking view over the city. Its quality-driven seasonal menu features plenty of grilled meats, as well as Asian and French-influenced dishes. There’s also a customisable three-course dinner on offer this Christmas. Diners can enjoy the meal accompanied by clouds, the vast Victoria Harbour vista and a view of many of Hong Kong’s landmark skyscrapers.
The Peninsula is home to Felix, a European-inspired restaurant created by renowned avant-garde designer Philippe Starck. There are jaw-dropping views from the 28th floor venue, showcasing, at night, the lights of TST and Central reflected on the harbour waters. The food is pretty jaw-dropping too. This Christmas, in addition to its classic modern European offerings, it also has special multi-course set dinners available.
The name gives it away, right? Welcome to the highest bar-in-a-building in the world, perched 118 floors up on top of the ICC. Although traditionally known as a watering hole more than a restaurant, the addition of Brazilian culinary maestro Rafael Gil to Ozone’s chef team this year has, ahem, elevated the dining experience here to something quite unique. We love Gil’s new freeflow Dom Pérignon Sunday brunches, where you can snack on some of the finest food in Hong Kong, like half lobsters, foie gras mousse and truffle mash, while admiring Kowloon, Hong Kong Island and the harbour from our city’s highest man-made vantage point.
Another bar and eatery where the clue’s in the name. Skye is an 8,000sq ft paradise on the roof of The Park Lane Hong Kong. Its sleek and futuristic interior combines comfort and edgy art, creating a funky ambiance that can be tailored to a variety of occasions. A backdrop of Victoria Park and Harbour alongside intimate seating and contemporary French cuisine make the venue suitable for romantic dates, anniversaries and celebratory occasions. Cheers!
Above the bars and clubs of Lan Kwai Fong, this modern Asian culinary hotspot is both a luxury dining haven and an entertainment club. Sitting on the 25th floor of California Tower, it recently celebrated its first anniversary by launching a new signature menu. The venue features a club lounge bar and sky deck that offers splendid 360-degree views of the city and an alfresco dining experience that should make you feel like you’re floating among the clouds and the high-rises.
Cafe Deco’s relocation from The Peak to The One in Tsim Sha Tsui this summer was seamless. But no longer does it look over Hong Kong Island. It now sports unbeatable views of Kowloon and beyond from 20 floors up. The venue’s balcony area enables guests to step outside and become at one with the sky and beautiful views. This Christmas and New Year’s, the restaurant has special brunches and Yuletide treats on offer such as butternut squash soup and festive Christmas turkey.
