Perched 34 stories up in the air, the Aer bar and lounge atop the Four Seasons Worli in Mumbai, India, is becoming a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. It’s the city’s highest rooftop bar, commanding spectacular views of the sea and the cityscape below. “You feel as though you have been transported to a different place. All you can see is the sea and the lights of Mumbai spread out like a blanket beneath you,” says Aer bar manager Aditya Ramani.
The upscale casual design motif features chic, minimalistic furnishings that create a perfect place and to sit and relax with friends or mix in with a melting pot of international hotel guests. Many come to watch the sunset, and experience the city’s slow drift into night, its buildings illuminated from inside, its vibrant street life twinkling below. If that’s not enough to help you feel “on top of the world,” there’s a frequent reminder as new guests arrive at the Aer bar, take in the stunning 360-degree panorama, and say “Wow!”
Even the locals are impressed. “Living here for 25 years, this was the first time I saw such a transformation on such a grand scale. The city lit up slowly and if the view during sunset wasn’t pretty enough, with the lights on, the city looked beautiful, almost sexy,” says local food and travel blogger Nishant Singh.
