    Have you ever spend the New Years Eve at one of these rooftop bars? We are planing to do so but I have read that we should make reservations early in the year. Any suggestions?

      Hi Amalia! Can’t say we have, but that sounds like fun! Reservations are always a good idea for New Year’s Eve but you should be able to wait awhile to make them.
