Wondering where in the world you can get a gorgeous view served up with your cocktail? Not to worry – Hannah Lodge from BarChick.com has done the hard work for you, rounding up the world’s best bars with a view.
Sky Bar, Bangkok
Sky Bar is the highest open-air drinking establishment in the world, so if you are chasing vistas as well as drinks then this is going to top them all. Perched dizzyingly high on the 63rd floor of The Dome at Lebua, this small, circular, colour-changing bar is high up on any visitor’s list. It’s the ultimate place for a sun-downer; drink in the skyline of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River with fine vintages and amazing cocktails.
Hula Hula Bar, Hvar, Croatia
This beachfront beauty on the coastline of Hvar is proof that you don’t have to get up high to find a sight to knock your socks off. As the sun begins to sink everyone on the island flocks to the rocks to grab a cocktail from Hula Hula Bar and party as the sun sinks in to the Adriatic. It’s so good that people even moor up from neighbouring islands to catch a glimpse.
Skyline Bar, Venice
Not your typical Venetian drinking spot, Skyline Bar is a swanky cocktail lounge which looks out across the entire floating city and southern lagoon. As Venice’s most impressive bar, it boasts not only a panoramic skyline but also a rooftop pool, just in case you fancy taking a little dip. All those canals may be perfect for some things, but swimming sure ain’t one of them. There’s no better way to spend an afternoon than chilling out, Champagne cocktail in hand, watching the boats float past.
