Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Choose your own adventure at The Cape's 'The Rooftop'- part bar, part lounge, part beer garden. You'll be greeted by sweeping water views of the Pacific, across to downtown Cabo and El Arco.
"An amazing rooftop bar with 360 views overlooking Cabo San Lucas with live music and fancy cocktails." - Stephy P.
The top floor bar of the former Ritz is open to the public for the warmer months from October through to May. With pool access technically restricted to guests, hotel discretion will depend on numbers.
"You have to ask the front desk to give you access to the rooftop. Drinks are super expensive but the view is spectacular and you can even enjoy a swim while sipping your rosé" - Lili V.
Aptly named La Dolce Vitae, this stunning terraza offers a full 360-degree perspective of Barcelona. The colossal Sagrada Familia still commands the backdrop from this comfortable setting. Salud.
"This is my absolute favourite rooftop in Barcelona. You have to do it for sunset!" - Tina S.
Dining or not, you'll want to make a reservation to ensure the best seat for sunset drinks at this prime position bar and grill.
"Voce 'e Notte is a cool rooftop cocktail bar and restaurant, where you'll enjoy the best sunset on the Amalfi coast! Be there by 7 pm Summer time to see the sun set behind Positano☀️🍋" - Toni R.
Stepping out onto the 6th floor of Hotel Cavour will give you the sensation you can reach out and touch the surrounding monuments of iconic Firenze, especially the mesmerizing Cathedral of Santa Maria.
"An incredible view over Florence and the Duomo. It was very enjoyable to just sit and relax in the afternoon here" - Amy S.
Yes, their Sky Bar is "that bar" from The Hangover franchise and, suspended at 820ft, this is cocktails with a hint of vertigo!
"Lebua is one of my favorite hotels in Bangkok because of the amazing view, best enjoyed at their Skybar and restaurant". - Katerina L.
New York, USA
Enjoying that iconic Manhattan skyline in its purest form means a jump over to Brooklyn. After a short stroll through leafy Williamsburg, you'll arrive at the Wythe. Like all rooftop bars, it's best enjoyed at sunset, but be generous with the time you give yourself for the queue for the elevator.
"There's no better way to view NY than a drink at the rooftop bar of The Wythe, the refurbished factory turned cool boutique hotel." - Nick W.
