You might not know local actress Carina Lau (though you may have heard of her husband Tony Leung, who has appeared in many Wong Kar-wai movies), but she's behind this Spanish-themed bar with a fantastic wraparound outdoor terrace providing views of Tsim Sha Tsui, the harbor, and Hong Kong Island skyline. Its name is a clue that it specializes in tapas and sangria, with 65 different kinds of sangria on offer, available in jars or half-jars (a half-jar provides a little more than two drinks and starts at HK$190). As for tapas, which range in price from HK$65 to HK$200, guests usually order one per person to share then add more as desired, with yummy picks including the Iberico ham, Olives Jewel (five stuffed olives), and the slow-cooked suckling pig with caramelized apples and honey-mustard sauce. Things get livelier on Friday and Saturday nights after 10pm when a DJ comes on the scene. But the only excuse you really need to come here is the views.
