“Don't go on a Sunday”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Had a layover in Hong Kong and met a local friend here for a couple of drinks. Huge terrace was over taken by Filipino maids who apparently get a day off on Sunday. I love the Philippines, however there is some law in HK that allows people to sit at outdoor tables without ordering from the local restaurant. Anyway, all tables were taken by non-buying 'patrons'. It would have been great of we could have sat and enjoyed the view, however we were forced to stand and behold.... MIT venture back one evening, but never again on a Sunday.

“Cool Autumn Evenings”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

Red is a must in IFC. Good atmosphere full of people enjoying a drink after work it makes for convivial surroundings for a few drinks with friends. Open air makes the most of the HK skyline this time of year and prices are reasonable too.

“From decent to great - depends on the weather”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

so this bar sits above the shopping mall, adjacent to a "public" park and is integrated with the Pure fitness club.

Drinks are great but premium price. The place is excellent for pre-dinner drinks when the weather is good. You get great views of the harbour and the skyline. Plenty of space. The inside part is fairly small (actually ideal to rent out for a private event but not necessarily somewhere that I would go for dinner).

I think the coolest part is going into the bar via Pure fitness (just so cool and weird walking into a sporting goods store and coming out into a lounge bar).

“Large terrace with excellent views”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

The Red bar is in IFC2 and has a large public space outside the restaurant which is a popular hang out for the post work drink with western expats. Great drinks well mixed and quickly served, but you have to to the bar to order. However the food or snacks are delivered to your table.

We enjoyed a couple of hours here one night soaking up the atmosphere and the buzz. Lovely views and no a bad spot to see the evening light show.

As the terrace is a public space you can also bring your own drinks - but why would you...

The snacks were excellent and good value.

A regular place to meet up when we are in HK.
