“Unrivalled view, arrogant staff, expensive drinks.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

OZONE is perched a top a massive tower of commercial floors and right at the top sits the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Then right at the top of that sits the highest bar in the world: OZONE at a towering 118 floors high. Getting to the top is a little bit of a maze if you arrive via the MTR as first you need to negotiate the mall on top of the MTR station, then through the commercial hub, then to the Ritz Carlton where you have to negotiate the staff and then FINALLY into the lift that goes directly to OZONE. Here you will immediately be pounced upon by the clearly greedy maitre de who is looking for high rollers to occupy the minimum spend tables. We highlighted we were only looking for a drink and were told to head out to the balcony where “its free to sit”. Great attitude…


We arrived quite early as we wanted to get seats with a view to watch the light show after the sun had gone down. I would advise an early visit as we managed to get two stools right at the windows overlooking all of Hong Kong and wow its something to behold:


Being the highest bar in the world in the Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong obviosuly means that this is haunt of people with some cash to burn and there was plenty of evidence of that around us with many middle aged and above men entertaining “ladies” who were clearly young enough to be their teenage daughters by flashing a bit of cash. It was amusing to watch tables attempting to out do each other by ordering the next more expensive champagne than the last order. However it did mean for normal folk like us that we were completely neglected by the staff.


Lets not forget that for our round of a pint of Ashai beer and a small cocktail (see the picture, thats small) we were still clearing £30 a round for two drinks. It’s expensive to say the least and the staff were poor and quite arrogant.

It’s absolutely worth the trip up to OZONE for a drink or two to see the sunset, the view and marvel and the dizzy heights with planes appear to only clear the sky above you by feet. However unless you have enough money to be treated like a human being by the staff be prepared for rubbish service and over priced everything. Make sure an use the toilet as well, thats quite something to behold!

“Great view of Hong Kong”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Went here with no expectations beyond the view, and the view certainly disappoint. The panorama of Hong Kong from this bar is spectacular. The bar itself was very 'meh'. Not surprisingly the drinks were very expensive but the service lacked a little more than I would have thought. This location is definitely worth a visit and the obligatory drink so you can get a look at Hong Kong from above.

“Fantastic view, a must for HK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We picked this place to celebrate our last night of our vacation. It turned out to be an awesome idea. The view was stunning! Drinks were awesome, service was top notch.
You should make reservation ahead of time, especially if you have more than a couple of people.
There's a dress code requirement. Shorts and tank top is not recommended.
They have a minimum spending requirement if you get your bill after 9pm, and not cheap. We ordered tapas to share, which worked out just fine.

“Fantastic & stunning view of nite lit HK:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

There are many beautiful attractions in Hk like the Disney world,Ocean park,Peak,Lantau island,star ferry etc etc...but for a soul stirring change & a peaceful atmosphere, i would strongly recommend visitors to visit this stunning place called Ozone bar on the 118th floor of hotel Ritz Carlton,abv Kowloon MTR in HK.
The entrance is free on week days,the ambience is just awesome,the menu has ample choices & nothing to beat the prices.i paid hkd 78+10% tax for a large glass of fresh apple juice;)i would certainly rate this place as an added & chilling attraction of Hk nite life:)it should be eually gud to have the view in day light too:)

“What an amazing view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

If you are in Hong Kong this should be on your to do list. The view up on the 118th floor is amazing! The Ritz is on the Kowloon side so you see all of the harbour and Hong Kong island. Ozone has a very cool ultra lounge feel. The drinks are expensive compared to most places, and I found the service only average, but the reason you go is for that million dollar view.
