The best open air bars

Rooftop bars are the hippest locations in summer. What could be better than to enjoy the view of Vienna over a good cocktail. Perfect for a sundowner is the Atmosphere Rooftop Bar on the roof of the Ritz-Carlton Vienna on Vienna's Ringstrasse. This year, celebrate the relaxed Californian lifestyle here with modern tiki cocktails, unusual sunshine food, and the right groove by the DJs from Radio Superfly – that's a summer evening straight out of a picture book.

Nordic design, Nordic bar food and unusual drinks surprise visitors here. New here for this year is a Veuve Clicquot Chandelier outdoor bar, which also serves inventive champagne creations.
