Featuring stunning vistas, signature cocktails and chill-out vibes, the city's hotels open up their top floors to anyone looking to make the most of a relaxing summer evening – whether you are looking for a 'Sunset Party', want to cool off in an infinity pool (or a open air Jacuzzi!), have a late drink at 2am or simply chill out in an intimate rooftop garden.
