Atlanta Rooftop Bars

Did you know they call Atlanta the empire state of the south? Our skyline continues to expand and while it’ll most likely never get to the level of NYC, it’s still beautiful and fun to admire while sipping cocktails at some of my favorite rooftop bars.

The Roof at Ponce City

Located in Old Fourth Ward
Atop the restored Sears & Roebuck building. Inside you’ll find a food hall + shopping, businesses & apartments. On the rood you’ll find the amusement park, Skyline Park so aptly named, 9 Mile Station (the restaurant), and 12 cocktail bar. All are great for grabbing a cocktail or two.
side note: this is how you stand in your stilettos so you’re heels don’t fall through the grates – lol

Gypsy Kitchen

Located in Buckhead
It’s the perfect spot to meet your friends after work to avoid ATL’s traffic and enjoy some drinks.

Hotel Clermont

Located in Old Fourth Ward
Atop the renovated Hotel Clermont is this astro turf covered roof with views of downtown. If you pop into the lobby bar you’re bound to see Playboy’s from the 50’s. It’s all apart of the hotel’s seedy past. Don’t you just love a seedy past.

New Realm Brewing

Located in Old Fourth Ward
This brewery is located right on the Beltline and has a large patio with Beltline and city views. Grab some of their beers and watch the beautiful sunsets.
Beer suggestion: Hazy like a fox (one of my fav IPA’s).

O’ku

Located in West Midtown
This is my favorite sushi restaurant. The fish is always top quality, the atmosphere is fun and vibrant and the rooftop is perfect for happy hour + late night vibes.

JCT Kitchen & Bar

Located in West Midtown
Delicious southern style food and fun cocktails, sitting above the railroad tracks with industrial buildings surrounding it. They play live music on some nights, so be on the lookout for that!

5Church

Located in Midtown
This large rooftop patio space is perfect for weekend brunching or late night weekend fun.

There are more rooftop bars in the city that are on my list to try. Do you have any you would recommend? Let me know in the comments. Salut!
