Top 10: World’s Best Rooftop Bars

To honor the best of warm weather good times, we polled the Indagare staff for their picks for the best rooftop bars around the world, from Paris to Cape Town and back to our hometown of New York City. Here are our picks for the best alfresco cocktails with skyline views. Contact Indagare for customized itineraries that can include reservations at these rooftop venues.

The Silo Rooftop, Cape Town

The rooftop bar of The Silo hotel, a transformed grain silo in central Cape Town, is one of the city’s most sought-after hot spots. Affording expansive views of Table Mountain, the V&A harbor and the confluence of the Atlantic and Indian oceans, the buzzy space, complete with an infinity-edge pool and potted tropical foliage, serves creative cocktails, South African wines and globally inspired light bites, such as prawn tempura, charcoal-fired pork sliders and vegetable Vietnamese rolls.

In Indagare’s words: “The Silo’s rooftop bar attracts Cape Town’s most fashionable crowd thanks to its sleek pool, tempura bar and hip atmosphere. The pièce de résistance is a raised, grass-covered pavilion–the hotel’s highest point–which offers 360-degree views of the seaside city.” ~ Blair West

El Fenn, Marrakech

In Indagare’s words: “The rooftop at El Fenn is exactly what Moroccan dreams are made of. Watching the sun set over the Koutoubia Mosque while lounging on pillows and sipping mint tea is how every day should end.” ~ Hannah Small
