Rhythm on Monroe at the Von Braun Center has indoor dining, outdoor patio dining, and a rooftop bar. Their rooftop is the perfect place to hang out before catching a show! While the rooftop bar doesn’t provide a ton of view, there are a few seating options that look out to Big Spring Park. They also have cozy fire pits and comfy seating to add to the ambiance.
We loved their delicious array of fun cocktails! For food, the rooftop bar only serves a limited appetizer menu, so I recommend heading down to the dining room for a great dinner in Downtown Huntsville.
5. BarVista at AC Hotel
BarVista is located on the second floor of the AC Hotel in Downtown Huntsville, so it’s not exactly a rooftop, but it still offers the same secluded vibes, open-air seating, and great views. From BarVista, you can get unparalleled views of Big Spring Park and Downtown Huntsville.
You can indulge in delicious sharables and unique craft cocktails on their elevated terrace.

Okay, so The Martin Bar & Bistro isn’t exactly a rooftop bar either, but with it’s roll-up window, open-air seating, it has the same vibe. This bar and restaurant overlooking Washington Street is housed in the old Martin Theatre, a movie theater that when it opened had the largest indoor screen in Alabama. The Martin is located in the theater’s old projection room.
It’s a small space with limited seating and a large island bar. Their menu features a lot of vodka-centric cocktails, beer on tap, and classic American and Southern food. When the weather is nice, they’ll roll up the large garage doors on the front wall for the perfect view of the bustling downtown street below.
