In the world of food versus furniture in Hong Kong, one of my favorite venues has to be Tivo. Tivo is a dining bar, rather than a bar per se, and has a fast following for its good looks, uncomplicated wine list and relaxed atmosphere.
The name ‘tivo’ is short for ‘apertivo’, and the ambiance of this venue is inspired by neighborhood hangouts of Milans many trendy bars. The interiors of Tivo are designed by David Yeo, founder and owner of the Aqua Restaurant Group to which Tivo belongs. The main features of the interiors are the all veneer pendant lights against a backdrop of glowing back-lit ‘wine shelves’ and an oval centre piece bar with concave sides, inspired by the inside of a wine barrel. I’m convinced it’s the lights and furniture - and not the wine – that keeps me coming back!
And when you’re in the mood for food, step into Vivo – the twin sister restaurant to Tivo – which shares the same looks but with an extra emphasis on great Italian cuisine. Bon Apettito!
