7 of the world’s top rooftop bars we loveJanuary 20, 2015
Rooftop bars are often exciting, lavish venues, with some particularly notable ones cropping up around the world. Here are 10 of the most impressive currently open to the public around the globe, whatever your style:
Radio Bar, ME, London
The sights on offer from this rooftop bar are a must for any lover of our capital, whether a tourist or resident. With views reaching across to St Paul’s Cathedral, the Gherkin and Shard and even down to Somerset House – a sight particularly lovely when the ice skaters are out in force on the annual rink – the bar boasts a comfortable, contemporary layout all set to the magnificent backdrop that is the city of London.
2) The Four Seasons Jumeirah beach, Dubai
The Mercury bar at The Four Seasons hotel in Dubai boasts extraordinary views over the beautiful Jumeirah beach. Its cool, contemporary style is in keeping with the rest of the hotel, offering a luxurious setting to sit back, relax and enjoy the sun with a lovingly-created cocktail or fresh juice whilst gazing out across the Arabian Gulf.
3) The Day Roof, Grand Hotel Central, Barcelona
An infinity pool surrounded by stylish sunbeds, a wealth of fine Spanish cuisine and cocktails and a magnificent view across the city are what makes The Day Roof at the Grand Hotel Central of Barcelona a really special place to be. Guests can soak up the sun all day long, and be sure to bag a sunbed as the bar exclusively for their use up until 8.30 pm each day, with members of the public welcomed to enjoy the bar’s vibrant night-time atmosphere after this point.
4) Rock Bar, Bali
Rock Bar is, though less lavish than most, another seriously impressive rooftop bar. Placed somewhat precariously atop the rocky crags that protrude into the deep swell of the Indian Ocean, guests can experience exceptional views across the water, exposed to the elements for a refreshing and invigorating experience. Particularly special is arriving in time for sunset; an event that has gained this bar its popularity and fame. The exceptional views and larger-than-life sunset experience merits the queueing for this fairly small venue, which – following the evening glow – transforms into a popular night-time venue for party-goers and holiday-makers alike.
5) Sky Bar at Sirocco, Bangkok
With Greco-Roman architecture, this bar offers astounding views across the city. Live jazz, mediterranean cuisine and an impressive range of mixology gives this bar its decadent, timeless feel; a calming moment in the vibrant hub that is Bangkok.
6) Top of the Mark, San Francisco
San Francisco has a wealth of sites at street level, so when taken in from this rooftop bar, the city becomes even more exceptional. Views over the imposing, magnificent Golden Gate Bridge can be taken in from this architectural masterpiece, with fine dining and a signature cocktail menu in keeping with this stately yet stylish affair.
7) New York Bar, Tokyo
Atop a 52-storey skyscraper, this bar is not for the faint hearted; rather, the devoted movie lovers and romantics among us. Familiar to most from the film Lost in Translation, the bar’s popularity stems not only from its fame, but an abundance of its own merits. From live jazz performances, to indoors smoking and an eclectic array of drinks, the bar is an homage to the essence of New York, set in its own urban metropolis of the ever-exciting Tokyo.
