Whether you love all things hip and happening or are more into kicking back in a chilled and serene space, not much tops watching the sun go down at a cool rooftop bar with views to astound you. If you’re looking for an alfresco evening with panoramic views, My Cyprus Insider has narrowed down some great spots for you!
1. High and Wet, Nicosia
Providing a total escape from the everyday grind in Nicosia, High and Wet (pictured in cover photo) is where the cool kids hang out in the capital. The so-called dive-bar has been set up on the lovely rooftop of 1010 Hall, right in the middle of the city’s buzzing old town. The views are astounding, the cocktails are delicious and the lighting that has been installed especially for this summer bar is truly impressive. The jungle greenery is pretty cool and relaxing too!
2. Barbacoa Rooftop Bar, Limassol
No night in Limassol would be complete without visiting Barbacoa Rooftop Bar. One of the hippest places in town at the moment, it commands the perfect spot, located just above the popular Barbacoa BBQ in the seriously cool Limassol old town. The funky space – complete with a sleek brick wall running across the length of the bar – serves signature cocktails and craft beer, while various DJs get your legs moving with upbeat tunes under the stars. Do arrive here early to claim a good spot, as the small bar tends to get packed later in the evening.
3. The Roof Top by Limassol Agora
If laidback and comfy is what you’re looking for, with a beautiful view too, then The Roof Top claiming a top spot above the recently renovated Limassol Agora is your best bet. Even open during the day for a sip of coffee as you sink deep cushioned seating, you can watch the sky turn color here come dusk while groovy tunes accentuate the inspiring views across old town Limassol. Swap that coffee for a sparkling cocktail and get your groove on!
4. Helicon, Larnaca
A brand new kid on the Larnaca block, Helicon Roofbar is a real stunner in the centre of the city boasting magnificent views out to sea and across the lively Finikoudes area. Part of a brand new boutique hotel apartment complex, it may be tiny but it oozes boho-chic cool, and in-the-know locals rave about it. Serving house cocktails inspired by island tastes, head here just as the sun begins to set for a heavenly end of summer al fresco experience.
