Gallery: Cheers to rooftop bars
InterContinental Hotels Group brings you their most famous hotel bars, as part of a best-in-class list of IHG hotels globally.
InterContinental Marine Drive-Mumbai (India)
Set in a dramatic location at the heart of the city's financial district, the InterContinental Marine Drive Mumbai offers intimate modern luxury alongside sweeping views of the Arabian Sea. The Dome open-air lounge bar on the hotel's rooftop provides a romantic setting overlooking the sea and the twinkling lights of the city below, with live music Tuesdays to Thursdays.
Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund (China)
Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund sits alongside the Huangpu River and gives guests an authentic taste of today's Shanghai, where old and new converge. The rooftop terrace provides a 270-degree outlook sweeping across downtown Shanghai. The panoramic views bring together the pointed rooftops and narrow streets of the Shanghai Old Town with the colonial architectural strip of the Bund; not to mention a spectacular vista of the Pudong skyline dominated by the Lujiazui skyscrapers.
Holiday Inn Paris Notre Dame (France)
A stylish eco-hotel, Holiday Inn Paris Notre Dame offers stylish interiors in a central Parisian location. The hotel's roof terrace boasts one of the best views of the Paris skyline. Guests can enjoy socialising over a glass of the finest French wine or book the roof terrace for private drinks to admire the incredible views.
Crowne Plaza London The City - Voltaire Champagne Bar (UK)
Located in London's Square Mile and built on the foundations of Bridewell Palace Voltaire serves an innovative selection of cocktails, wines and spirits. The main feature are the old stone vaults that kept prisoners under lock and key, and later housed the treasures of a Bank that was built in its place. These vaults are now luxury seating zones which guests can reserve.
InterContinental Boston - RumBa, Massachusetts (USA)
RumBa pays tribute to the legends and lore of the historic rum trade period in a sophisticated rum-themed cocktail bar serving an international collection of distilled rums. RumBa features two inside bars with cut block mesquite wood floor, a Venetian plaster ceiling and a state-of-the-art Séura mirror. The cocktail tables in front of the clear glass fireplaces are fashioned from second-hand Louis Vuitton trunks, a cool contrast to the soft brown leather sofas with their exquisite blue fabric backs. RumBa also features a popular outdoor summer patio bar located between the two lawns on InterContinental Boston waterfront promenade overlooking the Fort Point Channel.
Hotel Indigo San Diego-Gaslamp Quarter, California (USA)
Level 9 Rooftop Bar is one of the Gaslamp Quarter's hidden gems, offering breath-taking views of San Diego and the perfect vantage point to watch the San Diego Padres play baseball at nearby PETCO Park. The hotel also welcomes canine guests and their human companions on the terrace for monthly Canine Cocktails events, while the outdoor fire pit offers a place to warm up on chilly nights.
