CÉ LA VI, Hong Kong’s renowned rooftop bar, overlooks the Central horizon on top of California Tower and offers the most delicious drinks. The Sundowners Happy Hour runs every single day from 3pm to 9pm, where you can choose from their two-for-one cocktails, drinks, wines and beers on their Skydeck. (Tip for ladies: head there on a Thursday night for free champagne and canapes!).

Scarlett Café & Wine Bar
For an option on Kowloon side, head over to Scarlett Café & Wine Bar in Tsim Sha Tsui. Like CÉ LA VI, they offer a combination of canapes with your drink of choice.
