The 20th floor of the Empire Riverside skyscraper hotel in Hamburg’s St Pauli is boxed with 3 metered floor-to-roof glass windows, calling itself the Skyline Bar 20 Up. The name does the cocktail lounge justice: those panoramic windows are perfect to make the most of the beautiful sunset reflecting on the Elbe and falling into Hamburg’s skyline. The dress code is smart-casual, however if you still want to insist to wear sneakers, then you’ll have to expect some funny looks from the bouncers at the ground floor (personal experience). From 6 to 8pm the bar also offers sushi from “Hamburgs most well known female sushi chef”-small mix platter at 35 euros, large one at 65 euros. The cocktail menu is also a bit pricey, but remember that the prices are taking into account one breathtaking panorama.
