The World's Top 05 Hotel Rooftop Bars

I'm fortunate to be able to travel the world as a travel journalist. Interviews, sight-seeing, researching, exploring, and walking...a lot of walking...are all part of my daily routine. At night, however, I prefer to visit a rooftop pub. It's a terrific way to unwind after a hard day, meet new people, and get a different perspective on a city. Apartment

The following are my top 05 rooftop bars from across the world!

5) TWILIGHT SKY TERRACE, MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, USA - Located on top of the Madison, a boutique hotel, Twilight Sky Terrace offers spectacular views of the Mississippi River and the bridges that cross it, especially after dusk. The decor is contemporary, sleek, and inviting. There's a fire pit for nighttime gatherings, as well as shades to keep the summer sun at bay during the day. From Thursday to Sunday evenings, there's a live DJ, and every weekend there's "Breakfast With the Beatles." Only hotel guests and members have access to the bar.

4) THOMPSON TORONTO HOTEL, ROOFTOP LOUNGE, TORONTO, CANADA - This lounge is a casual poolside club featuring an infinity pool and cabanas during the day. When the sun sets, though, this establishment sheds its nightclub garb and heads out on the town. The Rooftop Lounge, in any case, provides a remarkable view of one of North America's great cities and the Great Lake (Ontario) on which it is situated. It is solely accessible to hotel guests and members.

3) FOUR SEASONS HOTEL AER INDIA, MUMBAI - As you sip a martini here, the gorgeous metropolis of Mumbai, which has grown into a truly global center over the last few decades, spreads out before you as far as the eye can see. On the 34th floor of the Four Seasons, Aer is Mumbai's highest rooftop bar, covering the full roof. It's a striking mosaic of modern furniture and lighting that's been curled into flowing, creative shapes.

2) DENVER, COLORADO, USA - THE ROOFTOP This is not only the world's largest rooftop may also be the world's largest bar, at 38,000 square feet! The Rooftop, which debuted in April, is located atop Coors Field, a 50,000-seat stadium that is home to the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball. This two-story area has seats for 1,200 people and can accommodate up to 4,500 fans. The views of the city of Denver and the 10,000'-14,000' Rocky Mountains beyond are extremely stunning, in addition to the baseball game below you. The Rooftop also provides the opportunity to sample some local craft brews from the city known as America's microbrewery capital.

And now for my choice for the best rooftop bar on the planet...

1) RITZ-CARLTON HOTEL, HONG KONG, CHINA - OZONE BAR This bar is called Ozone for a reason: it's virtually in the Ozone! It's the world's highest bar, at 118 stories, atop the Ritz-Carlton at the top of the International Commerce Centre. And possibly the most fashionable. The modern, whimsical furniture is accented by unique ornamental accents that encompass pretty much every angle and shape known to mankind and is bathed in innovative blue lighting. You'll have a spectacular view of Victoria Harbor from this vantage point. After you've had your fill of admiring the view, you may dance to the beats of the house DJ or participate in a Cocktail Master Class led by a professional mixologist. (After that, you could be a pro mixologist!)
