95 Meters Above Bratislava: UFO Restaurant & Bar

Located in the world’s seventh largest suspension bridge, formerly known as the bridge of the Slovak National Uprising, UFO Restaurant and Bar opened in 2005 as a more modern and stylish reincarnation of the former Communist-style restaurant Bystrica that formerly occupied the space. The open-air observation deck sits 95 meters above ground level with the restaurant slightly below at 85 meters. The restaurant offers a mix of seasonal Mediterranean and Asian fusion cuisine and the bar supplies cocktails that could easily compete with the hippest bars around the world. Highlights include Helda’s Saffran Sherbert (becherovka, homemade saffran ice cream, bollinger champagne) and the Rose Negroni (beefeater gin, carpano antica formula vermouth, campari and rose water foam). Despite perceptions after a few drinks…the UFO does NOT rotate or otherwise move in any way.

The seating is limited (80 in the restaurant and 60 in the bar) so plan accordingly if the UFO is a not-to-be-missed on your list.
