Is there any better location to experience this than the beautiful rooftop bars of Hilton in Europe? In these bars, you can enjoy the evening with a cool drink and perhaps you can also send some wishes to the sky.

London: A cocktail in honor of the ravens in the Tower
It’s considered London’s wildest rooftop bar: Savage Garden at DoubleTree by Hilton London – Tower of London. The iconic castle, which now houses the British crown jewels, is in the immediate vicinity and just a five-minute walk away. While it’s surrounded by pubs, the absolute highlight is atop the hotel itself: the Savage. According to the motto “A little party never killed anybody” – very special parties take place at the Savage. Special parties naturally include special drinks, such as St. Olave, where gin meets an ancient liqueur made by monks, or Raven Master, which was created in reference to the ravens in the Tower.
Venice: The best view of the historic city
Some things seem even more beautiful when viewed from afar, as if you were right in the middle of them: Hilton Molino Stucky Venice is located on the elongated Guidecca Island, which runs parallel to Venice’s main island. It is housed in a former flour mill that is considered Venice’s most important industrial monument. On the roof of the historic building, however, there’s not only a wonderful pool, but also the Skyline Bar, from which you can take in the panorama of the main island’s buildings steeped in history. The city is so close that you can still hear its heartbeat, but at the same time far enough away to perceive it as a whole. Skyline Bar is the highest bar in Venice where guests can treat themselves with delicious and creative cocktails prepared by expert mixologists while enjoying live music.
Prague: See the Old Town from Cloud Nine
“Cloud Nine” is the name of Hilton Prague’s rooftop bar. 40 meters above the Vlatva River, not only one, but two roof top terraces offer a phenomenal view of the Old Town with St. Vitus Cathedral and Prague Castle.
