A stunning new bar at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong provides an elegant environment with intimate seating and views of Victoria Harbour. At Caprice Bar, guests can enjoy some of France’s most revered wines and famed, artisanal cheeses – without ever leaving Hong Kong.
A stylish and discreet bar, adjacent to the acclaimed Caprice restaurant, Caprice Bar offers a neat destination for an aperitif, digestif, single glass of wine or Champagne or an indulgent cheese experience or charcuterie plate.
Caprice Bar is designed for both a brief encounter and a lingering evening with friends, always with relaxed but efficient service.

The interior design is a continuation of Caprice, created by the same team at Spin Design Studio, and provides seating for couples, groups or individuals at the bar counter’s sparkling marble top.
Sumptuous and rich, the design highlights beautiful carved wood paneling that frames etched glass walls. The space also includes luxurious, velvet-clad sofas; deep leather armchairs; wrought iron and marble tables; and ornate refrigerated counters displaying coveted wines.
Caprice’s signature lit catwalk conjoins Caprice Bar and guides guests to meet an open fireplace, hidden behind which is a stunning hand-stitched Suzhou tapestry hanging at over six feet tall, as the backdrop to a further secluded drinking spot.
Caprice Bar offers a selection of interesting and unusual wines by the glass or bottle, as well as long-standing favorites of wine aficionados from the great châteaux of France. The wine list at Caprice Bar is an extended version of the Wine Spectator-awarded Caprice Wine List, while also presenting wines from unknown regions of France.
Alongside, the bar serves a selection of liquors and traditional cocktails, as well as Champagnes and liquor coffees.
With the accent firmly on France, a seasonal food menu displays the Comptoir Bar and the Cheese Bar, from which guests can choose a selection of savory snacks or cheese, respectively. Served on wooden boards and slate tiles, these delicious selections are rustic and filling.
The comptoir (translates as "counter" from French) menu changes regularly, offering items such as charcuterie, black truffle scrambled eggs, wild game terrine, Iberico ham, pâté en croute and duck leg Parmentier.
Guests can also sample genius desserts crafted by Caprice Pastry Chef Marike Van Beurden, who scooped second place in World Chocolate Masters 2013.
The cheese menu offers a selection of artisanal unpasteurized cheeses, freshly flown from France on a weekly basis and always the best of the season. Guests may choose to have a plated selection of chèvres (goats’ cheeses), pâtes molles (soft cheeses) or a bit of everything.
