Hold and drag it out of the menu. If date and weekday are shown, they will also be removed.

Alternatively, you can disable and customize the clock in:
System Preferences → Date & Time → Clock.

Go to -

System Preferences → Date & Time → Clock and Uncheck the show date and time in menu bar.

Done.

The easiest way is to hold down the ⌘ Command key on your keyboard and drag it out of the menu bar (you can also re-order the menu bar icons by holding the ⌘ Command key and dragging them around around, if you didn't know).

But, you can also go to  → System Preferences → Date & Time → Clock and uncheck "Show date and time in menu bar" if you'd rather do it that way.

Now it's in System Preferences -> Dock & Menu Bar -> Menu Bar Only (section) -> Clock

However, as far as I can see, you cannot hide it anymore, that can be only done for the other items. What you can do, however, is to minimize to a small analogue watch, which takes minimum space
