Rooftop Bars With Unbeatable Views (PHOTOS)

Posted: 07/25/2012 7:00 am

We dig a hotel with a gorgeous view (see: Room with a View, Unbelievable Hotel Terraces, Pools with Stellar Views), so it's no surprise we can't stop staring at the photos of these rooftop bars, all atop Condé Nast Traveler-approved properties.

Find your perfect perch!
