Top Atlanta Rooftop Bars

1. Rosé & Rye at the Hotel Colee

📍 Buckhead Rooftop Bar

Rose & Rye rooftop bar outdoor seating, Hotel Colee, Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia

Rosé & Rye is the rooftop bar and lounge 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

📍 Midtown Atlanta Rooftop Bar

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

📍 Buckhead Rooftop Bar

Spaceman Rooftop Bar at the Hyatt Centric Buckhead Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia

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.

4. SkyLounge at the Glenn Hotel

📍 Downtown Atlanta Rooftop Bar

Skylounge Rooftop Bar

Located on top of the historic Glenn Hotel in downtown Atlanta‘s Centennial Park District, SkyLounge at the Glenn is consistently voted one of the best rooftop bars in Atlanta by a number of travel websites and travel magazines.

The covered outdoor lounge overlooks Centennial Park and the Skyview Ferris wheel while showcasing a view of Atlanta’s iconic skyline.

I recommend The Centennial, their cocktail celebrating the 100th anniversary of this historic building. They also have a few small plates like a delicious Cheddar Bacon & Jalapeno Dip and a Hummus.

110 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30303

5. St. Julep at the Kimpton Sylvan Hotel

📍 Buckhead Rooftop Bar

St. Julep Rooftop Bar Drinks, Atlanta, Georgia

The St. Julep rooftop bar on the 9th floor of the Kimpton Sylvan Hotel is an indoor/outdoor space with cozy seating and views of the Buckhead skyline.

Sip delicious craft cocktails and local craft beers, and snack on funky craveable shareable plates or soft serve ice cream. On the weekends, they have a DJ to set the stage for your night out with amazing city views.

I recommend their Coconut Mojito or the Belle of the Ball. And definitely try their boozy soft-serve ice cream.

374 East Paces Ferry Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30305

6. The Roof at Ponce City Market

📍 Poncey-Highland Rooftop Bar

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.

675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30308

7. Live! at the Battery

📍 Rooftop Bar at The Battery

Live! at the Battery Rooftop Bar View, Atlanta, Georgia

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.

825 Battery Ave SE #600, Atlanta, GA 30339

8. Gypsy Kitchen

📍 Buckhead Rooftop Restaurant & Bar

Gypsy Kitchen Rooftop Dining

Gypsy Kitchen in Buckhead has an eclectic mix of Spanish tapas alongside Moroccan- and Indian-inspired dishes.

The restaurant has two spacious rooftop patios, one covered and one uncovered. From here, you can enjoy views of the Buckhead skyline out across Buckhead Village.

I recommend their Sangria or the 50 Shades of Purple cocktail to drink, and their Moroccan Spiced Lamb Skewers and their Seafood Paella to eat.

3035 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30305

9. The Marquee Club at The Fox

📍 Midtown Atlanta Rooftop Bar & Lounge

Marquee Club at the Fox Theatre

The Fox has its very own exclusive rooftop bar. The Marquee Club features multiple levels of cozy seating across their main floor lounge, mezzanine, rooftop conservatory, rooftop terrace, and arcade rooftop terrace.

To get in, you’ll have to purchase an annual membership or upgrade your ticket on a per-event basis. It’s an iconic rooftop spot overlooking the Fox marquee and Peachtree Street.

660 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308

10. The Rooftop at Hotel Clermont

📍 Poncey-Highland Rooftop Bar

The Rooftop at Hotel Clermont is one of the hottest rooftop bars in Atlanta. (It’s seriously hot up there; the summer sun can be brutal and the rooftop is wide open!)

This rooftop is covered with AstroTurf for a lush setting, has plenty of seating, offers street food from the rooftop’s own food truck, has skyline views for days, and serves frosé in the summer and hot toddies in the fall. There’s plenty to love about Hotel Clermont’s rooftop bar!

789 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306

11. O-Ku Atlanta

📍 West Midtown Rooftop Restaurant & Bar

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

12. Drawbar at the Bellyard, West Midtown Atlanta

📍 West Midtown Rooftop Restaurant & Bar

Drinks and Skyline view at Drawbar, Bellyard Hotel, West Midtown, Atlanta, Georgia

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.

I recommend their Mojito or a Gin-Tai.

Interlock Ave NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

13. Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House

📍 Grant Park Rooftop Restaurant & Bar

Tin Lizzy's Cantina Grant Park

The Grant Park location of Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House has a great rooftop with a view out over the Historic Oakland Cemetery (hence the restaurant’s name).

This is a relaxed seafood restaurant with a raw bar, steamed shellfish menu, seafood platters and baskets, and seafood tacos.

I recommend the Catfish Tacos to eat and their Watermelon Basil Bash or their Tombstone Tea to drink.
