Notable Finalist: Terrat at the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona

Also in Barcelona, guests here can enjoy 360 degree views of the city as well as a rooftop dipping pool. A wide range of drinks and cocktails are served up alongside Peruvian cuisine from Chef Gastón Acurio.

Southeast Asia Finalist: Alfresco 64 - A Chivas Bar

Set on the 64th floor of the Tower Club at lebua, this space, which just opened this past March, bills itself as the world’s highest outdoor whiskey bar. The venue has partnered with Scotch whiskey manufacturer Chivas Regal to serve a lineup of Chivas whiskies as well as other premium varieties, plus a limited edition “Chivas Exclusive lebua blend” – the first time Chivas Regal has created a blend exclusively for a partner.

East Asia Finalist: Ozone at The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong

Billed as the world’s highest rooftop bar, this venue is way up on the 118th floor. Cocktails, Asian tapas and dance parties are on the menu, and the bar even hosts “weddings in the sky” for couples looking to tie the not. No shorts, beach sandals, open toe shoes or sleeveless shirts for gentlemen after 9 p.m., and guests under 18 are only allowed between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. daily and at Sunday brunch.

Mexico Finalist: Purple at Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa

Looking out over the marina and the stunning Bay of Cortez, the Purple VIP rooftop lounge offers a cool spot to enjoy the sun. By night, guests can party with local DJs while enjoying premium beverages.

Caribbean Finalist: Celestial Terrace at Jade Mountain

Hovering high above the Jade Mountain Club, the Celestial Terrace serves up cocktails and a space for sunset-watching and stargazing. The food grown on the resort emphasizes local ingredients – the estate even produces its own chocolate – while the resort’s organic farm, Emeralds, provides additional herbs and vegetables for the table. Private dining experiences are also available.

London Finalist: The SkyLounge at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London

In the heart of the city, from here guests can take in the Tower Bridge, The Shard, the Tower of London, the Thames, Gherkin and St. Paul’s Cathedral in a 360-degree panorama. Guests can reserve tables in the bar (subject to availability) for a minimum of 10 – otherwise, it’s first come, first served. The drinks menu serves up a number of classic cocktails (takes on a Manhattan, Old Fashioned, Negroni and more are all in evidence), as well as wine, beer and liquor. For entertainment, the bar has a resident DJ.

Paris Finalist: Le Georges at the Centre Pompidou

A great spot to grab a quick break from museum-hopping, this hideaway atop the Centre Georges Pompidou in Les Halles offers a number of options for a sweet bite, like chocolate fondant, bourbon vanilla ice cream and apple or lemon meringue pies. Heavier fare, including a croque monsieur, cheeseburger and chicken Caesar salad, is served until 7 p.m.

Set on the 21st floor of Midtown’s Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, the winner of our New York round is the Top of the Strand.
