“Great View and Lots of Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Perfect location for a drink on the terrace overlooking the harbour and town. Seems to be expat heaven. A little pricey but great experience for visitors. Don't forget to wear proper shoes or you will not get in!

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We nipped in here for a few drinks before a reservation close by. It was a fleeting visit but it had a really nice chilled vibe. Bit more upmarket for tourists, tended to be local ex-pat professional types. Nice place though.

“Swanky roof top bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

If you want to treat yourself and get a wonderful view of Central at the same time, then do to Sevva. In the Prince' building and a quick elevator ride up the bar is luxurious and expensive!

A large rood top terrace offers views of the HSBC building and the old cricket ground and then out to the harbour. Service can be variable, we once had a poor experience but the second trip was perfect. Great cocktails and a fun, fashionable crowd.

We have never eaten here but the food did look delicious.
Soak up a bit of style while in HK...

“Best rooftop open air bar in Central”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The Sevva bar and restaurant on top of the Prince's building is easily the best rooftop, open-air bar in Central, Hong Kong. It overlooks Statue Square with a great view of the Legislative Council building and the three modern bank buildings, the Bank of China, HSBC and Standard Chartered, the three private banks that issue Hong Kong's money, the absolute epicenter and heart of Central. Standing on the terrace overlooking Statue Square you feel like you are hovering in space among the skyscrapers, perched in part of the skyline itself and right in the middle of the action. It's the perfect place for an upscale drink after work.

If you have the time, Sevva is especially fun at about 8 PM when the Symphony of Lights starts and the adjacent skyscrapers light up and change colors especially dramatically - sipping one's second or third martini looking at the HSBC building doing it's thing is a visual effect out of a science fiction movie. However, it's often very crowded that late so it may not be easy to find an empty table or even just some free space to hang out.

The open air terrace on the side of Statue Square has stand-up tables and is my preferred place to hang. It fills up quickly in the evening so come early and order drinks and snacks and take in the view. The staff will also bring nuts and crisps (potato chips). I can't speak for most of the menu as I usually fill up on appetizers here and have never ordered a full meal.

Tourists will come here dressed fairly casually but locals tend to dress sharp. This is a place to get an after-work drink for local business people who will be impeccably dressed. It's expensive and worth every penny. It's a great place to bring a date or visitors from out of town. Fantastic martinis, great snacks and a perfect view.

“Good view, good drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Had a good time in Sevva last weekend. The weather was nice, a bit windy but not too cold, so we enjoyed our drinks at the rooftop terrace. View was good, although I preferred the view from Tsim Tsa Tsui to Hong Kong island rather than backward. Husband got himself a mojito, taste rather standard..my white chocolate martini on the other hand, was really really good. Overall, it's a good place to have a drink and be with your friends.
