Sky Bar: Bangkok, Thailand
Perhaps this is the most celebrated rooftop bars in the world. Whoever goes to this city (which you can do for not very much thanks to loads of cheap direct flights to Bangkok), has to visit the Sky Bar in Sirocco restaurant once. Located on the 63rd floor, this is the world’s highest al fresco restaurant. It offers 360-degree views of the city.
Aer, Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai, India
Aamchi Mumbai too has a state-of-the-art restaurant at par with the skyscraping rooftop restaurant of the rest of the world. Standing tall at the 34th floor, this highest rooftop bar of Mumbai covers the entire roof of the Four Seasons Hotel of Mumbai. Extremely chic and sleek in its décor, it will make you skip a heartbeat on the first look. The glass walls offer an unhindered view of the Romantic Mumbai cityscape and the sea.
Dinner in the sky
Er..what if we drop our plates?
Imagine being suspended at a height of 50 metres, your legs dangling in the air, your hair blowing in the breeze. And in front of you is well-laid out seven-course meal. Dinner in the sky offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, meetings, evening cocktails in the sky. The meals are prepared on the ground, the trays loaded with food, the guests strapped onto the roller-coaster-like dining chairs, and the entire setup is taken to the skies via a crane. The service is available in many countries. We wonder if this is exactly what they mean by cloud nine.
360, Istanbul, Turkey
Turkey is the land where you breathe culture, smell spices, marvel at the mosque architecture. The city is full of rooftop restaurants giving you an overwhelming view of its quiet skyline. But the one that stands out is the award-winning hotel 360. Stylish, sleek and sensuous is what defines 360. Overlooking the city, this rooftop bar is a lounge and a restaurant. As the evening warms up, so does the dance floor. The hotel is known for its floor-to-ceiling windows and huge spaces.
