Rosedale on the Park has been on my radar for a while but for some reason we just never ended up going to it…until tonight!
It promised stunning views and happy hour drinks on their website and it duly delivered.

The Skyzone Bar and Restaurant is all the way up on the 33rd floor. Decor is a bit “The Shining”¬† (and the music was in accordance with the decor at times) and the service a little lacklustre at the start when we were the only ones in the place but the service improved¬† as the night went on.
I think our bill was about 300HKD for salad, garlic bread, pasta main, dessert and 2 beers and 2 wines. Pretty good for a hotel in Hong Kong! And, you know what? The food was really good! The bread was fresh and hot, the mains were tasty and just the right portions and the ice cream for dessert was, undoubtedly, “home-made”.

The views are pretty, prettayyy good. It’s a strange vantage point that you may not see as a visitor to Hong Kong; looking over Victoria Park, HK library towards Tin Hau. Normally people get to places to look over the harbour or down towards Central. So it was a nice change.

And going in to the men’s bathroom you are met with another interesting view and quite a…strange bathroom experience!
I hope you like the authentic sound effects…
