Introducing hipster hideaway Ovolo Southside

Hot Opening: Ovolo Southside

New-to-Hong Kong Ovolo Southside opened its artsy doors this summer, acting as a great base for exploring the burgeoning Wong Chuk Hang area. The hotel has all the usual Ovolo hospitality: a free minibar and happy hour, plus all-day coffee and snacks. But what’s extra cool about this new space is the converted-warehouse design, hand-painted murals, and the green views. I also have to tip my hat to head chef Kris Bandel at Cirqle: Yeah, the resto is a bit out of the way for your casual Friday-night dinner, but I highly recommend the crab cakes and the Key Lime Pie—it’s not every day you see one of these on a Hong Kong menu. Plus, the big terrace is ideal for cooler nights, as is the upstairs rooftop bar. Staycation material, indeed.
