“Harbour view like no other”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Located near the river bank, the hotel's summit bar has a view over the whole harbour. Stunning, one should say, but be careful - if looking at boats, ships and cranes from above is not your thing then perhaps it's not worth it considering the prices on the drink menu are starting at €10 and ending as high up as you are sitting. I love that kind of view however, and so I would recommend it, if then just for the view. The service is good, even though I got served the wrong drink in a two-item order. They have an eye on you and you don't have to wait long to order a new round or for the drink to appear. It's pricy though, so don't go shouting 'Drinks are on me!' before you check your credit card balance - I ended up paying almost €40 for two alcoholic and two non-alcoholic drinks. The quality of the drinks is good but not excellent, so yes you pay extra for the scenery.

Go there for the view, not to save money :)

“This is the place to go !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is one of the greatest bars in Hamburg ! Located in the Hotel Empire Riverside on the 22nd floor, does it give you the most amazing view over Hamburg port and city.
Great cocktails at decent prices.

Busy night on Friday and Saturday. Hotel guets are granted entrance, while non resitdent guets are have to wait in the hotel lobby.

Tip bring your camara and take a great night photo over Hamburg port !

“What a view of the Hamburg port, great drinks, abounds with atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Very modern Bar wraps around the 20 floor of the hotel, there are no bad views from this place. This as a busy place but the service is great! Drinks are pricey but very well made, by highly trained staff. Sophisticate but not pretentious. we went on the recommendation of a local friend as a not to miss place and they where definitely right.

“stunning views on Hamburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

very nice view on the Hamburg harbor as well as the city. A big choice of drinks, but nothing to eat at all...
