Any person who has ever wandered out of their house on a nice evening only to find themself at a bar with a cool drink in their hand can understand the very simple motivation that got them there. When we head to a bar, we’re looking for three simple things: some human contact, some smooth cocktails, and a change of scenery from our living room. When it comes right down to it, those first two factors are pretty much a given no matter where you decide to grab a beer. People are people and drinking is fun, which is why bars can thrive pretty much everywhere. That third element, the “change of scenery” is an all-too important factor that can make the difference between a place with booze, and a one-of-a-kind drinking experience. When you’re traveling the world and you need some respite from the city streets, just swing through one of these amazing rooftop bars for a change of scenery you will never forget.
