The best view of Venice has to be at the Skyline Rooftop Bar. Located on the top floor of the Hilton hotel, you will be amazed by the sights of the city and the Giudecca Canal. The rooftop is cozy and the number of guests never overbearing, so you will truly feel as if you have a private access to one of the city’s most gorgeous skylines.

In this sleek and understated setting – think grey design couches and steel bar stools – the sunset gets center stage. A design plus, really, to have kept such a neutral palette and let the sky and city lights beyond do all the talking. But while you might come to the Skyline for the view, you’ll definitely stay for the drinks. After all, it’s far from a usual affair to have such a well-constructed signature cocktail menu for a hotel bar. And you’ll soon find out, the Skyline isn’t just another hotel bar.

Here, the bartenders are well-versed in what makes an incredible cocktail, and why it is so important to setting the tone for the night. The menu is rather extensive, but intriguing too, ranging from bright green drinks with fun descriptives like “aphrodisiac” or “gentle” to distinctly bitter cocktails in orange and bright red hues. So many options, so many different tastes to sample. Why not settle for the Mugnifigue, a bourbon-based, pear juice, fresh lime, syrup, fig mustard and egg white concoction, or perhaps the energizing Carrot Parrot, a savvy mix of Elyx vodka, Saint Germain Liqueur, carrot juice, lemon juice, rosemary syrup and ginger beer?

Come nightfall, live DJ sets by the pool induce a livelier pace, with people gearing up to take the dance floor by storm. Everything at the Skyline Rooftop Bar is precise, well thought, out and designed to make you have a night as memorable as the beauty of the place. A scenic setting, perfectly executed cocktails, and a festive ambiance? Yes please! There is a good reason why the Skyline Rooftop Bar is Venice’s best-kept secret, but lucky for you, we liked it too much to keep it to ourselves.
