1.Ozone Bar, Hong Kong
Set on the 118th floor of Hong Kong’s International Commerce Centre, Ozone Bar is part of the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong hotel. At 1,690 feet above sea level, it’s the highest bar in the world, offering spectacular views across Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. The bar’s sleek, contemporary interior features a white marble bar, strips of neon, and a honeycomb pattern across the floor and ceiling. Aside from the amazing views, the bar offers Asian-inspired tapas, a superb wine list, and a small but well prepared selection of cocktails
2.Rock Bar, Bali
The Rock Bar Bali is a world-class open air bar and kitchen showcasing unparalleled views of the Indian Ocean from 14 meters above the water. The designers truly have captured the concept of having a couple of drinks on the rocks as this bar has literally been built into the rock face.
Located inside the Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali and only accessible via Ayana’s cliff side inclinator, the Rock Bar boasts an intimate atmosphere with candle lit tables, private lounges and a spectacular sunset view whilst enjoying the incredible backdrop of the Indian Ocean and views of Jimbaran Bay Coastline.
Whether coming with a large group or as a couple, the Rock Bar creates an intimate setting to suit any occasion. It’s the extensive food menu boasting modern classics with a sophisticated twist, and the Rock Bar Signature cocktails that make this venue an absolute must when in Bali. The bar is specialized in Mediterranean cuisine during dinner.
Accommodating up to 880 guests, it is not rare for the Rock Bar to reach capacity so it is recommended that you call ahead or arrive early.
3.Northern Lights Bar, Iceland
The Northern Lights Bar is part of Iceland’s chic, eco-friendly Ion Hotel. As its name suggests, the bar is designed to offer unparalleled views of the Aurora Borealis. Its wraparound windows overlook the surrounding volcanic tundra, providing beautiful views of Lake Þingvallavatn and mossy lava fields.
The windows are made of double-height glass and the bar’s interior lighting can be quickly dimmed if the Northern Lights appear. A beer selection focused on local microbrews and a soundtrack of haunting Icelandic folk tunes complete the experience.
Initially touted as the world’s only underwater nightclub, Subsix now describes itself as an ‘underwater playground,’ hosting wine tastings, wedding parties, and club nights. Part of the Per Aquum Niyama Resort in Dhaalu Atoll, the bar is located 20 feet under the surface of the Indian Ocean. Visitors reach Subsix by taking a speedboat and then following a grand staircase down below sea level. The bar’s interior features ocean-themed décor, including a clam-shaped bar and coral-inspired chandeliers. Visitors can sip cocktails while viewing eels, parrot fish, turtles, rays, and other coral species from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
5.The Old Forge, Scotland
The Old Forge pub holds the Guinness World Record for being Britain’s most isolated pub. With no roads running directly to the bar, it’s reachable only by an 18-mile hike or seven-mile ferry journey. Despite its isolation, the bar is typically filled, particularly during the summer months, with patrons eager to experience its impromptu music performances. The pub’s walls are decorated with musical instruments, ranging from whistles to fiddles, which are available for patrons to play.
6.Sky Bar, Thailand
Bangkok’s Sky Bar is located on the 63rd floor of the Lebua at State Tower. Towering 820 feet over the city, this 360o rooftop bar offers incomparable views over the Chao Phraya River and the whole city. The bar’s ambiance is sophisticated and upscale, with live jazz music featured nightly and an illuminated bar changing colors every few seconds. The views are enhanced by the bar’s creative cocktail selections, including Poptails which blend cocktails and popsicles for a refreshing treat.
