Who doesn’t love spending an evening sipping drinks atop rooftop bars or terraces, while surveying city scenes? There’s something cool, trendy and seductive about them. Most rooftop bars are inside world-famous hotels that have some uber-trendy bar to entice you in and to set them apart from other hotels. Relax, take a sip from your cocktail and soak-up the views from these enviable rooftop bars.
1. Altitude Sky Lounge, Marriott Hotel, San Diego, USA
The Altitude bar is, as its name suggests, one of the highest rooftop bars in the Gaslamp district of San Diego. It isn’t actually that tall at 22 stories, but given the propensity for Californian seismic activity and rigorous building codes in urban areas, it’s tall for the region. Go on a night when rival baseball teams are playing, as you’ll have direct viewing access into Petco Park (the city's baseball field)! The Altitude comes complete with fire pits, waitress service (avoid those long bar lines) and they opened up another section to enable better skyline views.
