OPEN BAR

HK Magazine - - NIGHTLIFE -

We’ve been hear­ing a lot about the fresh seafood at the aptly named Seafood Room, but do their drinks match up to the dishes? The first foray into Asia for Bull­dozer Group—which man­ages up­scale venues all across the UAE, Rus­sia, Ukraine and Kaza­khstan—this multi-story venue aims to be the cen­ter of at­ten­tion, with ev­ery­thing from caviar and cham­pagne nights to the brag­ging rights of hav­ing one of Hong Kong’s most ex­cep­tional rooftop views.

The main din­ing room is decked out with a sea theme, all greens and blues in the art­ful wall pan­els and seashell dec­o­ra­tions, and made to feel even more spa­cious through the use of huge mir­rors. Lines get sleeker and cleaner on the ter­race and up­stairs on the rooftop deck, with wide sofa seats mak­ing the space equally invit­ing for day­time or night­time drink­ing. And while the bar area seats pairs com­fort­ably, up­stairs is where you’ll want to sit to drink in the fan­tas­tic view.

Aside from clas­sics and an elab­o­rate wine and spir­its list, the sig­na­ture cre­ations at Seafood Room—all priced at $138—share a loose mar­itime theme. The Gil­lardeau is the bar’s most play­ful drink, with a pre­sen­ta­tion rem­i­nis­cent of an oys­ter: a slightly sa­vory Ke­tel One vodka jelly with cham­pagne foam, which you slurp with a spoon­ful of grena­dine and tomato “sauce.”
