Why rooftops?

Because everything is better with a nice view!

We believe that to be very true, that everything is better with a nice view. Therefore we have assembled this guide, a guide to the world's best rooftop bars. To inspire and for you to, wherever you are or wherever you are going, be able to find an oasis where you can feel the breeze against your skin, sip on a drink and gaze into breathtaking panoramics.

Looking for a sophisticated and romantic rooftop evening? A long and sunny lunch on a comfy rooftop terrace? Or a full night out, dancing the night away, sky-high and under the stars? Look nor further, we've got you covered for it all!

To qualify as a rooftop bar we have a couple of criterias: There must be an outdoor terrace, which must be above the first floor, and hold a bar. Maybe you are looking for a rooftop bar in NYC, a fancy Bangkok rooftop bar, the best rooftop bars in Barcelona, Chicagos's best rooftop bar or where to dine with a view in Rome.

Search for more then 1 900 rooftop bars in over 160 of the world’s most popular cities. You can also find rooftop pools, rooftop restaurants, rooftop yoga and rooftop cinema here at The Rooftop Guide. And if you are looking to find the 'best rooftop bars near me' you should check out this map and article.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started and find the best rooftop bars in the world, or at least the one that suits you best!

Meet the team

The Rooftop Guide was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2015. The lack of a complete and transparent guide to the world's best rooftop bars brought the idea which is now the world's largest website and guide about rooftop venues.

The motto is straightforward: Our aim is to help everyone find the ultimate rooftop for the ultimate experience.

The minds behind the The Rooftop Guide is Hans Ebenman and Rikard Fredricson, two old childhood friends who share a big interest in exploring the world.
