12 rooftop bars around the world with panoramic panache

There’s something instantly uplifting about rooftop bars. Perhaps it’s the fresh air, perhaps it’s the wraparound views, perhaps it’s the I-could-almost-be-on-holiday feel or perhaps it’s the sheer pleasure at having escaped the working world down below. Whatever the reason, as anyone who has ever hit the rootftop knows, basking in the sun (or better yet, watching it go down), or taking in a city by night, cocktail in hand beats terrestrial bars, however stylishly assembled, any day. Here are a few high performers sure to give you a fresh perspective.
