Raising the Bar The weather is just beginning to cool down a little which means you can finally venture out from the arctic climes of air-conditioned indoors.  From this moment on, all after-work cocktails and post-sup nightcaps should be spent in their rightful place — a sweeping panoramic rooftop terrace with a luscious cascading vertical garden and skyscraping views across the heart of Central.  Welcome to Armani/ Privé.  This stunning joint venture between Aqua Group and Giorgio Armani has now opened its sleek and seductive doors in Chater House to reveal 8000 decadently designed sq feet including a 5000 sq foot terrace.  Ideally, you’ll be wanting to time your visits to this jaw-dropping balcony just around sunset and then head down to Armani/Aqua, the adjacent restaurant showcasing Aqua’s dual specialties — contemporary Italian and authentic Japanese.  Signature dishes include the Italian Executive Chef’s succulent Homemade Pasta Envelopes filled with Italian Sausauge, Pan Fried Scampi Tails paired with Canteloupe Melon, and Classic Milanese Risotto, and from the Japanese menu Grilled Hiroshima Oyster with Black Truffle, and Abalone, Sea Urchin and Salmon on Sushi Rice.  Next follow the red carpet into the intimate club area where you can sip one of Armani/Privé’s signature cocktails, the Wasabi Green Apple Martini or the Lollipop Caipirinha, conjured up by award-winning Mixologist Manuel Soro, before heading back upstairs and reveling under the stars.  The bar has officially been raised.  Now it’s time to celebrate.
