10. Condesa DF Rooftop Bar, Mexico.

This is an awesome bar in an all-around cool hotel. The Condesa DF is decked out in extraordinary design, from the table cloths to the couches. This super-chic hotel only has 40 rooms so make sure to get a reservation, and make sure to hit its rooftop paradise for some cocktails as the sun goes down over Mexico City.

  1. The bar on top of the Me Melia in 2nd place is actually run by the hotel as part of the whole “Me experience”. A friend of a friend is the manager of the hotel and I was lucky enough to be invited up there… “WOW” they were in the middle of a fashion shoot that day so great views in all directions!!!

  2. While the view is breath-taking from these buildings, I can’t get over the morbid detail that it looks like, for most of these, there’s only a precarious little rail serving as the only thing protecting the person from plummeting off the edge. Nothing like a delicious dinner, then you go to enjoy the view and along comes a strong gust of wind and…. off I go!

  5. I would say I have to check all of these out at some point but… what happens when you are acrophobic – you see I have a totally irrational fear of heights. I once was in the restaurant in Toronto’s CN tower and I thought I was going to pass out from panic. I swear that tower was swaying like a palm tree in a hurricane.
