In a city as busy as Hong Kong, there’s always some reason to go out, whether it be a celebratory dinner, toasting to close a deal, or partying to blow off some steam. Thanks to the city’s high-rise filled skyline, going out doesn’t have to mean being inside. Here’s our guide to rooftop bars in Hong Kong for every occasion:
The Murray’s rooftop bar offers an extravagant selection of European dishes. Situated on the 26th floor of the hotel, the outdoor terrace spans a massive 420-square-metres. After dinner visit the cockatoos that gave the restaurant its name at the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens across the street.
