sky and rooftop bars around the world

Rooftop bars have become a must visit over the last few years.
In the open air and with stunning views, they provide the perfect milieu to elevate your Insta game. As such, you can seldom scroll through social media without seeing a perfectly timed picture of someone enjoying a drink with the ultimate skyline backdrop.

Google searches for rooftop bars have increased significantly since bars reopened, and over the last five years, searches for ‘rooftop bars near me’ have increased well over 3,000% . So, regardless of whether your tipple is a margarita, daquiri or sparkling water, it seems we’re all lusting after a sun kissed visit to a rooftop bar, but which of these staggering locations takes the crown as the most Instagrammed?

We analysed 75 rooftop and sky bars all over the world and counted the hashtags to find the most Insta-worthy of them all.


Drai’s Beachclub
and Nightclub

The most Instagrammed rooftop bar is in the party capital of the world – Las Vegas. Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub has become the hottest spot for partygoers, offering spectacular views of the Las Vegas skyline and down the famous strip.

Mercury Lounge


The Mercury Lounge in Dubai is the second most popular rooftop bar on Instagram. A hotspot for influencers, the Mercury Lounge is in the famous Four Seasons hotel. With views of The World Islands and the Arabian Gulf on one side, and the famous Burj Kalifa and Dubai skyline on the other, it is the ideal backdrop for those bucket list Instagram pictures.

On the menu you’ll find seafood, Italian influenced dishes and decadent deserts. Drinks-wise, there’s bubbly, a vast array of delicious cocktails and wine from around the world.

Le Perchoir


Le Perchoir in Paris is next on our list. Although unmarked on the street, the bar is hugely popular thanks to its huge rooftop with 360-degree views of the French capital.

Located in Ménilmontant, you take a lift to the 7th floor where you’ll be greeted with a relaxed vibe, featuring sofas scattered with cushions, rich plants, and traditional railings. The menu is packed with cocktails, imported beer and of course wine, alongside colourful tapas to nibble on as you enjoy golden hour and beyond.

Chill Skybar

Ho Chi Minh City

Rounding off our top five is the Chill Skybar in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Adjacent to the New World Hotel, the bar is on the 26th floor, so offers a unique party platform above the city below.

The first and original skybar in Vietnam, Chill’s electric atmosphere makes it the place to be whatever the time of day. But it’s as the sun sets that the bar really comes alive; smoke grenades and a kaleidoscope of lights set the stage for a night you’ll not forget.
