Rosé & Rye is the rooftop bar atop the Hotel Colee in Buckhead. This hotspot provides glamourous views of the city as well as handcrafted drinks and a laid-back vibe.

You’ll ascend to the top of this trendy Buckhead hotel in an all-glass elevator to the bar’s perch 125 feet above the city. There are two outdoor patios, a beautiful mural, and floor-to-ceiling light installations that are a total vibe. This rooftop bar is very Buckhead.

When we ate here, we tried their a Sunset Paradise and a Cru Love cocktails, along with the Thai Chili Rosé & Rye Wings, Crispy Fries with a fried egg on top, Beef Sliders, and Chicken Sliders.

Hotel Colee was nice enough to host us for a stay. Read my full review of Hotel Colee here.

2. Aerial Kitchen & Bar at Epicurean Atlanta

Aerial Kitchen & Bar is located on the 9th floor Sky Terrace of the Epicurean Atlanta hotel in Midtown. It’s located by the pool, which is only available to hotel guests, but the bar itself is open to the public.

Epicurean Atlanta was nice enough to host us for a stay, though we got rained out of trying the rooftop bar. Still, I was able to walk around and see that it’s a great set-up that feels like you’re at a resort. Their menu is Mexican-inspired with food items like tacos and tortas and cocktails like mojitos and margaritas.

You can relax on the Sky Terrace that has cozy seating, fire pits, and a great view of Midtown.

Epicurean Atlanta was nice enough to host us for a weekend. Read my full review of the Epicurean Atlanta hotel here.

3. Spaceman at the Hyatt Centric Buckhead

Spaceman is located up on the 15th floor of the Hyatt Centric Buckhead hotel and is Atlanta’s highest rooftop bar and lounge. The bar has both indoor and outdoor lounge areas, covered seating, heaters, and panoramic-views, making it the perfect spot to hang out year-round.

Spaceman was nice enough to host us for an evening to try out their rooftop. They have a small menu of sharable dishes (the Parmesan Pommes Frites and Smash Burger are delicious) and aptly-named craft cocktails (like the Stardust, Super Nova, and Cloud 15).

Come for sunset when you can watch the sun go down behind the Buckhead condos and office buildings in a brilliant display.

6. The Roof at Ponce City Market

Skyline Park at The Roof at Ponce City Market, Atlanta, Georgia

There are actually two separate bars at The Roof at Ponce City Market, plus Skyline Park which also serves drinks, but I’m going to lump them all together for the purpose of this post.

12 Cocktail Bar at RFD Social serves classic cocktails in an intimate, indoor setting at The Roof. 9 Mile Station, meanwhile, is a rooftop beer garden with great views of Atlanta.

The Roof is extra unique because of Skyline Park, a rooftop amusement park with rides, games, and yes, alcohol.

If you need a break from the huge party going on inside the multi-story sports bar and entertainment space at Live! at the Battery, you can take your drink out to the rooftop bar.

There’s not much to the view — just the flashing lights of the Coca-Cola Roxy — but it’s still a good place to enjoy the summer breeze.

The Rooftop at Hotel Clermont is one of the hottest rooftop bars in Atlanta.

With its AstroTurf, plentiful seating, street food, skyline views for days, frosé in the summer, and hot toddies in the fall, there’s plenty to love about Hotel Clermont’s rooftop bar.

12. O-Ku Atlanta

O-Ku Rooftop Bar Drinks, Atlanta, Georgia

O-Ku Atlanta‘s Midtown location serves up innovative Japanese sushi and cuisine in a cozy rooftop setting.

The bar used to have a great view of the Atlanta skyline, but unfortunately it doesn’t have this view anymore because of a new apartment complex that went up. (Check out the next bar on this list that has basically O-Ku’s old view.) But it’s still a great rooftop with phenomenal drinks and sushi.

The covered rooftop bar is complete with twinkling lights, lounge seating, and delicious cocktails.

Westside Ironworks, 1085 Howell Mill Rd NW A3, Atlanta, GA 30318

13. Drawbar at the Bellyard, West Midtown Atlanta

Located at The Interlock in West Midtown, Drawbar is the Bellyard Hotel‘s elevated patio lounge. It isn’t exactly a rooftop bar, but I’m including it on this list because it still has the views and the secluded vibes of a rooftop bar.

Drawbar has a Southern-inspired menu and a constantly changing list of fun craft cocktails. And the sweeping views of the Atlanta skyline is absolutely beautiful. You also don’t have to worry about the weather because the patio is covered.
