Sometimes, if you want a good view of a city, you need to take a step back and get out of there! The skyline of Manhattan might give you goosebumps, but you don’t get to see it in all its glory until you actually leave the island. So if you love dining with a fantastic view of the urban wonders, here are the top 5 places to go.
Jersey City (Manhattan) Vu
Head to Vu at Exchange Place in Jersey City for fine dining with a view of the Manhattan skyline. You’ll eat with the financial center skyscrapers right in front of you. And for dessert, you can see the Empire State Building light up. You’ll also have a view of the new Hudson yards and all its interesting, quirky highrises.
Yangmingshan (Taipei City) Rooftop
To see Taipei City and Taipei 101 from a quiet, distant place, head to Yangmingshan. Eat dinner and have drinks at Rooftop and take in the lights of the city from the top of a mountain. There are also other bars in this little mountain town so after dinner, it’s totally safe to do a bit of bar hopping and check out Taipei from different vantage points.
Montreuil (Paris) ibis Port de Montreuil
France isn’t known for having skyscrapers and everyone is able to see the Eiffel Tower from their rooftops. But head to ibis Port de Montreuil one of the very few high rise views of the city of love. Get a glass of wine, a charcuterie sampler, sit back, and watch the city light up as the sun goes down.
Alameda (San Francisco) Rock Wall Wine Company
There are plenty of hiking trails and hills you can conquer to get a bird’s eye view of San Francisco. But head to Alameda across the bay to get a view of the city by the bay accompanied with a glass of wine and a delicious burger. At Rock Wall Wine Company, you’ll meet like-minded wine lovers and experience a night out like none other.
Bellevue (Seattle) Six Seven Restaurant
East of Lake Washington, is the city of Bellevue. This ritzy town has many waterfront restaurants, but none others like the Six Seven Restaurant. Situated in a hotel, not only will you get to enjoy the skyline, but you’ll also be treated to breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains. There’s no better way to end a Seattle tour!
