Today we will show you the best rooftop restaurants around the world. If you are looking for a great meal or an amazing cocktail while looking to an inspirational view on summer this is for you.
Restaurant Georges, Paris
In the heart of Paris, the Georges Pompidou Center architecture designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers houses the National Museum of Modern Art. The Georges restaurant located on the rooftop remains the ideal place to spend moments under the Parisian sky, with a breathtaking and panoramic view of the capital and its greatest monuments. Whether you are on the terrace or under the glass roof, you can take advantage of the sunset and the lights of Paris.
Vertigo and Moon Bar, Bangkok
Vertigo offers an al fresco dining experience set atop a roof terrace overlooking the glittering cityscape of Bangkok – a grill-and-bar experience that is Asia’s first. Dine on fork-tender seafood and premium steaks while feasting your eyes on the city’s vast skyline. Moon Bar puts you at ease in an informal setting 61 floors above the city and offers premium drinks, such as the classic Vertigo Sunset, a melody of pineapple, cranberry and lime juices blended with just the right amount of Malibu. If you’re not afraid of heights, enjoy the Continental cuisine and, of course, the dramatic views of Bangkok’s bustling streets far, far below.
Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar, Queenstown
Perched more than 1,000 feet above the ground, Stratosfare, designed by Warren and Mahoney Architects, offers sparkling views of New Zealand’s dramatic landscape, including the Remarkables mountain range and Lake Wakatipu. Three-tiered levels guarantee that everyone gets a good seat while dining on local specialties such as South Island salmon. And getting there is half the fun: Diners arrive via gondola from central Queenstown.
At GB Roof Garden in the Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens, every meal is served with a dollop of ancient history. From the terrace, there’s a clear view of the Acropolis on one side, and the original site of the first Olympic Games, Kalimarmaro Stadium, on the other—all had while sampling an array of Mediterranean specialties, such as risotto fumé with smoked mozzarella and lemon. This unique restaurant looks stunning.
The Press Lounge, Manhattan
The ground floor of Manhattan’s Ink48 hotel houses a contemporary restaurant called Print, serving farm-to-table fare. The top floor features the über-cool Press Lounge, with a glass-enclosed bar, an outdoor pool, and unobstructed views of the Hudson River—it’s been drawing a fashionable crowd since the rooftop hot spot opened this spring. Seasonal cocktails and local wines complement small plates and house-made accompaniments. Enjoy attentive service as you relax in comfortable elegance.
