    Hello,

    I found this great article about rooftop bars or cocktails bars with a view. I was wondering what are the steps to follow to be part of such a great article?
    We are Skybar in Antwerp city of Belgium and we have the the highest bar in the city and one of the highest in Belgium. Our focus is great cocktails and food in a lounge enviroment. We are also a pop-up concept only in the summer time.
