ToTTs Roof Terrace ToTTs transformed, from legislation to captivation

[12/10/09] 

There are few things worse than walking through a pea soup-like fog of other people’s carcinogens every time you walk along Wyndham Street or down through Lan Kwai Fong. Don’t get us wrong, we appreciate a good stoogie like the rest of you, but you have to admit, this smoking law has done little but push the party out onto the street and that, as mother used to say, is only going to end with tears.

Fortunately, some of the big brains in the F&B world have used their culinary clairvoyance to create great al fresco hotspots, where you can smoke to your hearts content, and enjoy a wee tipple to boot, without street walking. 
 
The new terrace atop Causeway Bay’s Excelsior Hotel is just such a spot. Formerly a bare concrete perch whose world-class vista was over-looked by diners clambering for window-front seating in the Talk of The Town restaurant (known as ToTTs, which sounds like a kiwi being rude), the new roof terrace is a great spot for showing off Hong Kong’s skyline to visiting friends or colleagues or as an ice-breaker. Located on the 34th floor, its one of the few public-accessed views from east to west and perfect for the nightly festival of lights. Finger food is available and if the views don’t set the candles of amour aflame, the range of Latin-themed cocktails, including Caipirinha d’Uva, Pineapple Batida and Lychee Mojito, will certainly have you both ready to Rumba.
 
It’ll be love at first sight.
