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!

Atlanta Unique drinks

Here are some unique drinks to try in Atlanta at some of my favorite watering holes in the city. Where do you like to grab a unique cocktail in the city? Do you have a spot that I must try? Let me know in the comments!

Victory Sandwich Bar

Whiskey Coke slushies! They’re so tasty and easy to drink, you’ll find yourself feeling good in no time!

Watchmans

Watch for the lifeguards in their towers, when they blow their whistles then you better watch out for the sharks! Although in this case… the shark is coming in your drink!

The Whiskey Project

First and foremost, their well whiskey is WELLER Green label, yeah, let that sink in. Their most sold whiskey by volume – not cost – is Blanton’s. Crazy, right? Well how about this unique twist on an old fashioned for brunch, a bacon old fashioned completely lit up!

Little Spirit

Don’t you want a cinnamon sprinkled Burt Reynolds on top of your cocktail? This place is tiny but packed full of fun cocktails and a huge painting of Biggie & Tupac.

The James Room

The Countess – and yes that is a James Bond inspired bathroom. The Countess is a delicious cocktail that is topped with 18K gold!

New Realm Brewing

New Realm brewery did a collab with the famous King of Pops and the beer is top notch! Dip the accompanying popsicle into the beer and enjoy. It’s also perfect for cooling off in the Atlanta heat!

Cold Beer

Frozen avocado margarita with black salt rim. There’s nothing more to say, get one.

El Super Pan

Coquito – the Puerto Rican version of classic Eggnog but with coconut and yes, it’s amazing!

Tikki Tango

I like my cocktails topped with fire! Rum and a lit up sugar cube is all I need to start the night right!

Big Sky Buckhead

CBD oil infused cocktails, tasty and more relaxing than your standard cocktail 😉

Salaryman

Does it really matter what’s inside the cup when it comes in this? LOL!! This was your classic rum beach drink with a sliver of pineapple in the cutest cup!
