While Buenos Aires is already known for its open-air bars and lounges, there are few options that take advantage of the city’s stunning skyline.

Located in El Centro, Buenos Aires’ downtown district, Visit Sky Bar on the 13th floor of the newly completed Hotel Pulitzer is a welcome addition to the city’s too-small collection of hotel bars and rooftop terraces.

The Thursday night crowd that shows up for the weekly High on the Roof event during summer has turned the bar into one of the city’s best after-work venues, offering an alternative to going out in Palermo, Recoleta and San Telmo. For those want a more relaxing atmosphere, visit on any other day when the crowd is smaller.
