Al fresco brunches will be with us until the first frost, but having dinner or a drink outdoors is a warm-weather treat with an expiration date. Time's running out to enjoy a twilight dinner hot off the grill-or fizzy cocktails crafted on popular rooftops like Hong Kong's Ce La Vi. Sunset never tasted so good.

There's something about having a whisky and a cigar on the terrace or "in the snug" that brings out our inner Winston Churchill-even if we don't smoke. In fact, a new offer at the Ritz-Carlton bar at Beijing's China Central Place aims to please the tobacco-free crowd: Oak Cross Malt Scotch Whisky with a chocolate cigar that's crafted in the Piedmont region of Italy. 198 yuan per set (about $30) from 2 pm to 1 am daily through Oct 31; 010-5908-8131.
