Hall viscosity is a nondissipative response function describing momentum transport in two-dimensional (2D) systems with broken time-reversal symmetry. In the classical regime, Hall viscosity contributes to the viscous flow of 2D electrons in the presence of a magnetic field. We observe a pronounced, negative Hall resistivity at low magnetic field in a mesoscopic size, two-dimensional electron system, which is attributed to Hall viscosity in the inhomogeneous charge flow. Experimental results supported by a theoretical analysis confirm that the conditions for the observation of Hall viscosity are correlated with predictions.
