It gets notoriously hot in Barcelona. The solution? a dip in the Mandarin Oriental Barcelona’s rooftop pool, cocktail in hand preferably. When you’re done, dine on some fine Nikkei cuisine while soaking in the vistas of this wonderful city.

 Gramercy Park Hotel: Gramercy Terrace

Located on the 18th floor of the hotel and set in a lush interior garden; this artsy terrace features masterpieces from Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol, but the true eyecatcher, is the view of the Manhattan Skyline.
