The view from a height changes one’s perception, and a little distance can do a world of good. So why not treat yourself to a night in a sky bar such as the Skyline Bar 20up. Its name reveals its exclusive location on the 20th floor of the building. From here, you can look over the Elbe and the port of Hamburg at a height of 90 metres – while the seven-metre-tall panorama windows ensure that guests really don't miss a thing and that the hassle of everyday life loses all importance for a while. The Skyline Bar 20up is part of the Empire Riverside Hotel but is also open to external guests. The atmosphere is always relaxed and stylish, and a doorman checks whether the smart-casual dress code is being adhered to. Upon entering the bar, you can choose between seats at the 20-metre-long counter and seats at the window front. The best time to come here is shortly before sunset, and it is recommended that you stay on for a second or a third drink – until all the lights in the port have been switched on and the small illuminated party boats make their way down the Elbe. There is a large selection of classic and modern drinks: in addition to champagne cocktails and Caribbean creations, guests can enjoy aperitifs or numerous non-alcoholic drinks.
