Urban Oasis | Urban Rooftop Hotel Bars

When checking into a new hotel, it?s hard to resist the urge to check out all the amenities ? the pool, the restaurant, and sometimes, if we?re lucky, the roof. Whether you?ll spend just the afternoon or end up watching the twinkle of stars, there is nothing more magical than knowing the sky is the limit. Check out some of our favorite sky -high hangouts.

La Piscine at Hotel Americano

 

518 West 27th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan, New York

 


 

Located just west of 10th Avenue in Chelsea, La Piscine is the perfect place to spend late days enjoying margaritas or sipping ros? in the lounge by the pool, be sure to make a reservation if you want to enjoy  a full meal courtesy of the Grill.  The crowd is arty by nature, the hotel is located in the center of NYC?s hot gallery district.

 

Miguelina, Grand Bazaar & Megan Park

 

The Upper Elm at King and Grove

 

160 North 12th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York

 


 

Though originally recommended for its Sunday evening reggae party, the recently-opened Upper Elm has made us fall in love with weekday evenings, which we spent watching the sun set. The beautiful views of Manhattan, Long Island City and Brooklyn will entice you to stay for hours. And with all the buzz about The Elm [restaurant] opening in the same hotel in just a few short weeks, we can?t wait to see what snacks will be included on the updated menu.

Arriba at Condesa DF

 

Veracruz 102 Condesa, Cuauhtemoc, Mexico City

 

 

 

Overlooking the tree-lined streets of Mexico City?s oldest district, Arriba is a true design bar on the roof of a true design hotel. You  will come at first for the views of Castillo de Chapultepec and Espa?a Park,  but you will  come back a second and third and fourth time for the sushi and fresh maragaritas. The view, and the house Mezcal will, without a doubt, inspire you.

 

 

 

FigueLele Sadoughi & The Maasai Collection

 

El Mirador at Hotel de la Opera

 

 

Calle 10 No. 5-72 La Candelaria, Bogota

 

 

 

For a view of the colonial rooftops and courtyards of Bogota?s historic La Candelaria district, head to the Hotel de la Opera. As a restaurant, they serve  full meals but have a somewhat limited bar. But don?t worry; you will not be disappointed. The wine is delicious and the service is some of the best we?ve had in the world.

The Roof at the Four Seasons

 

 

1418 Professor Wafic Sinno Avenue, Minet El Hosn, Beirut, Lebanon

 

 

 

During the early evening hours, from the highest rooftop lounge in Beirut, the city is calm and the Mediterranean peacefully still. Everything and everyone is waiting, it seems, for the nightlife of Beirut to begin. The Roof is relaxed, yet elegant and not cramped. All in all, it is the perfect place to start you night.

 

 

 Rasa Jaipur, Lady Kismet & Grand Bazaar

 

 

Aer at Four Seasons Mumbai

114 Dr. E. Moses Road, Worli, Mumbai
 
 
 
Though the city bustles below, Aer will relax you after a long day in crowded Mumbai. The epitome of chic, you?ll find decadence in its minimalism and won?t shy away from returning after the bar spoils you with nightly DJs and international tapas.
