When you’re in a new city, there's no better way to soak in the skyline than from the sky, and on these three rooftops you’ll be getting the vantage point you need.

From a helicopter pad to a poolside seat, these bars have got the view sorted and the good vibes flowing; all that’s left to do is sit back and enjoy the view.

Heli Lounge Bar
Heli Lounge Bar is a must-visit evening spot for catching the sunset . Its breathtaking view of the city after the sun’s gone down makes it the perfect late-night locale. Get an unobstructed 360 degree city panorama from the 36th floor of Menara KH, which doubles as a helicopter landing pad..

The exotic drinks at Heli Lounge Bar will loosen the mood but the party begins two floors below with a DJ, dance floor and a couch made from a plane cabin. Don’t forget your aviators!
