Cocktail Bar in Central District

If there was a million-dollar view in Hong Kong, it'd be the one from the balcony of flashy Sevva – skyscrapers so close you can see their arteries of steel, with the harbour and Kowloon in the distance. At night it takes your breath away, but the prices will too – expect to pay a minimum HK$160 for a glass of wine.

Book ahead if you want a couch on the balcony in the evening, though you can also perch at a standing table or simply go out for photos.
