La Sala is one of a kind in Wan Chai, offering authentic, irresistible Spanish cuisine in an elegant but casual atmosphere. La Sala means ‘living room’, and here the interior is filled with Spanish accents, simulating the hangouts of Madrid and Barcelona down to a tee. Unlike other bars along Harbour Road, La Sala (at the Sun Hung Kai Centre) puts refined food first, with an exquisite menu of toasties, tapas, salads, traditional main courses, paella and desserts. That said, La Sala also boasts one of Hong Kong’s most impressive lists of Spanish-inspired cocktails and European wines, and it’s hard to think of a better place if you’re looking for a party venue or simply a civilised party spot.
La Sala is an accessible and authentic Spanish tapas experience unique in Hong Kong, and it’s found right in the heart of Wan Chai, with a terrace overlooking the city’s stunning skyline. La Sala is not your typical western tapas restaurant – this is bona fide Spanish, and here inside the Sun Hung Kai Centre on Harbour Road you’ll find the very essence of traditional Spanish cuisine brought up to date with modern flair. La Sala’s tapas are prepared according to time-honoured traditions but presented just as you would find in trendy areas of Barcelona and Madrid.
La Sala can cater for groups from 30 to 60 seated or 100 for a standing buffet – though even for small groups it’s wise to reserve space well ahead of time, because this is especially popular among Hong Kong’s corporate crowd for after-work drinks and their excellent value business buffet lunch. There’s also a complement of party gear such as a DJ booth, PA system and projector , making the place the perfect party venue for cocktail functions, celebrations and themed parties. Tucked inside the Sun Hung Kai Centre on Harbour Road,you’ll know you’ve come to the right spot when you see the playful Spanish bric-a-brac in the window. Once inside, you’ll find the ambience inviting, warm and sophisticated, accented by some subtle Spanish design elements, and from there you can be assured of authenticity on the plate thanks to native Spanish chef Pablo Sánchez Senén’s dedication to quality ingredients and careful preparation. No two visits to Wan Chai’s La Sala are the same thanks to a seasonal tapas menu, but you shouldn’t pass on their signature carrilleras al vino (beef cheeks in red wine) if you get the chance!
