1. California style – Limewood, Repulse Bay
Have you ever wanted to experience what it’s like to be in California? Limewood brings the Californian beach experience to Hong Kong’s Repulse Bay. They offer a wide range of food and beverages that one would find on a relaxing day at the beach; the bar offers tropical margaritas, craft beers, ciders, and BBQ-inspired cocktails that will quench your thirst and relax help you in front of the beautiful sunset view. Every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday at Limewood – free-flow tacos and a 2-for-1 margarita or Diablo jugs deal. Fridays and Saturdays are Sunset Sessions, which feature music by a local DJ. Feel what it’s like to be a Californian in Hong Kong.

3. Happy hour by the bay – 22 North, Discovery Bay
Discovery Bay holds a special place in the hearts of Hongkongers. Watch the sunset behind the hills while listening to the sounds of waves shoring up on the beach. What could make it better? A nice drink, of course. And to make it even better? Two drinks. 22 North offers a buy-1-get-1 deal on all alcoholic drinks, including bottles of wine.
Happy hour is every day from 12:30 pm until 7:00 pm. Weekend afternoons until midnight, enjoy live music from the neighbouring restaurant. Live music, 2-for-1 drinks, and the sound of the ocean are all essential ingredients to a fine summer evening.

4. The cityscape – La Rambla By Catalunya, Central
If you love the city’s skyline, La Rambla offers a sunset view on their sleek outdoor terrace with lounge seating. The restaurant spans 5,000 square feet, so it still feels spacious and relaxing even during peak hours. It makes for a relaxing destination perfect for tranquil moments spent with friends or by yourself. La Rambla offers five different menu options depending on the time of your visit. But if you are here for the sunset, La Rambla has a Terrace Menu featuring classic summer drinks like sangria for that holiday feel.
