HYC Bar & Lounge Premiers at the New Nathan Hill Entertainment Complex in Kowloon offering Panoramic Rooftop Views
HYC Bar & Lounge, a new upscale lounge destination offers high-end shisha, experiential gin cocktails, live music and rooftop seating with panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Kowloon Park. Situated atop of Nathan Hill - Tsim Sha Tsui’s newest landmark of shopping and dining - HYC offers a sophisticated lounge atmosphere and top of the line hospitality, making it an ideal spot for catching up with groups of friends or romantic dates. HYC is also the first venue in the world to unveil Kaloud’s ultra-luxe hookah set, ‘Krysalis,’ a revolutionary way to enjoy shisha.
The botanical link between shisha and gin is an integral part of HYC’s philosophy. The influence of herbs and the sophisticated variety of flavors offers a specially crafted cocktail experience on HYC’s menu including established favorites such as the Earl Grey Marteani(HK$120) that infuses Tanqueray with Earl Grey tea and a hint of lemon for a zesty flavor, whilst the Negroni (HK$110) delivers sweet yet bitter overtones on the classic cocktail. The signature menu provides more modern twists: the HYC Bang (HK$130)infuses Beefeater gin with Yakult for a refreshingly light, creamy texture and the Nolita Maid(HK$110) blends Amaretto and Rutte Old Simon Genever gin with lime to create a delicious, sour aftertaste. Mixing and Matching gives absolute liberty to pair high-end gins such as Hendricks(HK$160) or Monkey 47 (HK$270)with a variety of tonic flavors from Fever Treeand East Imperial- these are then coupled with a diverse assortment ofSmokes such as Lavender orHickory to provide another sensory dimension to the drinking experience. The freedom of combining flavors of both shisha and gin is a cornerstone of HYC’s foundation and the alignment of tastes leads to a full 360-sensory experience.
Shisha is one of the highlights of HYC’s lounge vibe and by partnering with Kaloud, the lounge will soon be offering the world’s first look at brand-new cutting edge hookah technology. Drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese tea sets, the Krysalis pays homage to the classic style by replicating the unique horizontal shape that is exceptional in the shisha scene. HYC strives to deliver a fresh approach towards what a high-end shisha experience can consist of, and the highly anticipated Krysalis will play a major role in redefining this as HYC looks to innovate a sophisticated twist on the classic process. HYC provides only the highest quality shisha, stemming from US based tobacco that prioritizes a premium production procedure - by focusing on softer tobacco, they absorb the flavor profiles to the fullest extent, giving the customer a comprehensive experience. Elevation through pairing is a core ethos at HYC, and is highlighted throughout their diverse offerings.
Meanwhile, the rooftop offers up breathtaking panoramic views of Kowloon and Victoria Harbour, whilst the lounge below provides a relaxed atmosphere for conversations amongst friends - whatever the size of the party. The playful interior’s cooling blues match the ambience of the lounge with the modern touches of gold and turquoise setting the trendy tone for familiar hits and chart toppers. The swanky rooftop provides a stylish outside space; perfect for a sunset cocktail. HYC’s stunning location merits Nathan Hill’s claim of being the new chic destination of TST.

Open from 5pm-2am Sunday to Thursday and 5pm-3am on Friday and Saturday, HYC provides the perfect late night atmosphere for friends to catch up over a drink or for a date.
