The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Introduces The "Exclusive 12" At The Lounge & Bar


The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Lounge & Bar located on Level 102 of the highest hotel in the world features floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing sensational views of the Hong Kong skyline with a stunning, lavishly-designed interior and Oriental-accented crystal chandelier centerpieces. The space exudes opulence yet offers an intimate ambience and with only 12 luxurious leather seats around the ornate carved bar counter in the center, The Lounge & Bar’s newly created “Exclusive 12” bar concept will be the ultimate cocktail and gourmet experience for you to crave the finest personalized service.


The bar counter is managed by award-winning, world-class mixologist, Lewis Tsang, who has developed a range of delicately concocted cocktails served in the finest Baccarat glassware, from classic drinks and elegant champagnes to martini offerings using only high-end premium spirits and the best ingredients and flavors.


In celebration of Baccarat’s 250th  anniversary, Tsang puts the spotlight on the “Cocktails in Baccarat” collection featuring six types of cocktails, including some of the all-time favorites such as <Vesper Martini> named after James Bond’s first love, Vesper Lynd which is his cocktail of choice; <Hanada> (meaning flower field) Martini, a must-try, featuring aromatic floral organic gin, parfait amour and elderflower liqueurs, and topped with lots of Earl Grey foam, reminiscent of a garden smelling of fresh flowers.  Another signature in the collection is the whiskey sour-inspired <Mr. Song> which is not just pleasing to the eyes but also has a three-layer taste of ginger, black truffle and the original whiskey sour on a hand-crafted rock ice sphere. For a classic champagne cocktail, <Snow Finch> creating an image of a flying bird in the sky. Beautifully presented in a Baccarat champagne glass, the cocktail has a refreshing taste of lychee, lemon and elderflower, making it the perfect choice for an aperitif. 


That's not it, a selection of premium bar counter snacks for the 12 guests, including <Balik Salmon>, <Quail Egg with French Caviar>, <Duck Foie Gras Terrine> and <Iberico Ham> are the best finger food's company.


From 7pm to 12 midnight nightly with limited seating of only 12 guests. Live jazz music is played from 8pm to 11:45pm, Tuesday to Sunday. For reservations and inquiries, please contact Restaurant Reservations at
