Bring out your camera and get Insta-ready, these restaurants will make you want to stop and photograph the incredible view of the city.

Smoke Shack

Park Plaza’s rooftop bar and lounge lets you lounge by the pool with a drink in your hand under the open skies. Look out over the surrounding Ballygunge area. The perfect time to go is at sundown. We also love the elaborately lit bar.

Blue and Beyond

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, escape to Blue and Beyond. Get a bird’s eye view of New Market and see as far as the Victoria Memorial. Although it is pretty during the day, it is ideal during the sunset. The scattered plants and candle-light add to the mood.

Zucca Lounge

The white-themed décor is straight out a Pinterest Board and gives this rooftop café a classy and sophisticated feel. Sit in a cabanna and get a great view of the greenery and open skies.  The fairy lights hung across the roof will make for a beautiful setting.
