Ozone – Ritz Carlton
118/F, The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong | 1 Austin Road West, Hong Kong, China (West Kowloon)
One of the items on Janes bucket list was to go to the highest bar in the world, so having only three weeks left… we decided to go on Wednesday. The Ritz Carlton’s Ozone bar is the highest bar in the world and is located on the 118th floor. The funny thing is, Jane and I didn’t know how to get to the Ritz Carlton so we took the AUSTIN MTR exit instead of the KOWLOON exit – by taking the Austin exit we had to walk about 20 minutes in heels…. so please, take the Kowloon exit.
When we got to the Ritz Carlton, it was so stunning – we all kept exclaiming how nice and fancy it was. We followed a group of people who were looking for the bar and had to switch elevators twice before arriving at our destination. Outside seating was plentiful, but it was sprinkling so we decided to sit inside (missing the view). Sitting at the bar is free, but in order to sit down on the couch the minimum fee is = 2,000 HKD. So, we sat down at the bar instead but as it was too crowded we were only able to get two seats while two of my friends had to stand.
Dressed for the occasion!
Drink Prices – I was expecting the drinks to be more expensive but they were quite decent. My drink was 180 HKD = $23 USD. I don’t remember some of the menu prices but I saw some beers for about 90 HKD, and there were 10 shots for 1000 HKD.
I ordered the Sweet Life (Tequila, Aperol, Passion Fruit, Lime Juice, Pineapple Juice, Bitters), while my friends had the Aria 118 (Orange Vodka, Sake, Coconut Rum, Passion Fruit, Lychee) & Blackberry Mojito (Rum, Blackberries, Lime, Mint, Sugar, Soda).
Afterwards, we headed off to Wan Chai to grab some drinks. I thought the bar was great and would love to come back with Brandon but I wouldn’t go there regularly. I am glad we got to cross it off our bucket list though!
