Located on the 7th Floor of the Kerry Hotel in Hung Hom, Red Sugar opened its doors in 2017. The bar is designed with a contemporary feel and features a spacious outdoor terrace decorated with cool decks and vibrant Neon light signs. While this rooftop bar is located on a relatively low floor, it offers unmatched panoramic views of Victoria Harbour. Situated directly on the harbour, Red Sugar is a great place to have a drink while enjoying the sea breeze.

Situated on the 29th and 30th floor of the One Peking Building, this is the place to go if you’re looking to impress. This rooftop bar in Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the highest points on the Kowloon peninsula. The venue is equipped with floor to ceiling windows, allowing visitors to take in the views of the Victoria harbour and Hong Kong’s skyline in all its splendor. While the 30th floor exclusively serves drinks, Aqua is also a Michelin rated restaurant, hosting the main dining hall on the 29th floor.

Out of all the rooftop bars in Hong Kong, OZONE may very well be the most well-known. Located on the 118th floor of the tallest hotel in Hong Kong, the Ozone bar is a place everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime. While the view is absolutely dazzling, the sheer novelty of ascending that high in an elevator and the experience of standing so far above the city are the highlights. Known for their creative concoctions, look out for drinks that include exotic ingredients like preserved egg and Chinese herbs. Their signature drinks include Vanilla Sky and Ms. Teresa Moon. A friendly reminder: a large portion of their bar is outdoors, so remember to pack a jacket – it’s cold up there!
The ICC building is located 5 minutes away from The Lodge and you can easily be reached by passing through the shopping mall Elements.
