It’s spring/summer time and its time for some drink and sun. So where can you get both in Atlanta? Rooftop Bars! Definitely a fun place to hang out, at least until it’s too hot for your comfort. Here are 13 Rooftop Bars to check out in Atlanta.
While there are two locations in the Atlanta area, I would highly recommend the one in Grant Park. Great place to pregame before a Braves game or have a nice enjoyable view of the historical Oakland Cemetery. Not only do they have great house special drinks, they also have surprising good seafood and other deep-fried treats. This is one of the premier spots for rooftop drinking in Atlanta.437 Memorial Drive S.E.

Whiskey Blue is known to be one of the few rooftop bar options in Atlanta. Attached to the W hotel, this is not to be confused with their hotel bar in The Living Room (lobby). The entrance to Whiskey Blue is outside near the front of the hotel. If you have reason to go (or better yet, get invited), accept the invite!3377 Peachtree Rd. NE Atlanta, Georgia 30308
Definitely one of the more comfortable rooftops to visit. Covered enough to keep you from the pollen and radiating sunlight and open enough to keep the open air flowing through. Amazing Mexican food and a very casual feel to the restaurant will have you coming back to try all their different entrees.2813 Peachtree Rd Atlanta, Ga 30305
The Roof isn’t open quite yet but when it opens it will give other rooftops a run for their money. The view is exceptional as you can see above, The Roof will feature a carnival games, a beer garden and more.675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30308
5. Shake Shack
One of the best burgers in Atlanta! Pretty solid view at Shake Shack, you will have the opportunity to gaze across Peachtree to see what’s new in the neighborhood. If the weather is nice and the rooftop is open, take advantage!3035 Peachtree Rd. NE

Republic stands out mainly because of their daily specials (.45 Cent Wings Mondays, Taco Tuesdays). Definitely one of the hipster places in the Grant Park area. If you’re a fan of Mimosas or Mary’s, check out when they have their $13.95 Bottomless on the weekends. On the weekends, definitely expect to see a DJ there, usually a rotation of them every other weekends or so. Also, check out their brunch menu on the weekends as well!437 C Memorial Dr, SE Atlanta, GA 30312
If you’re a big soccer fan, this may be the place for you and other supporters to go catch the World Cup. This Irish Pub is a definite must-stop to go and check out the deep drink menu and great food.273 Buckhead Ave.

If you’re looking for the ultimate rooftop experience, you have to try out WETBAR. For this rooftop bar, you definitely should bring you swimsuit for this place as it has a pool, stocked with the best alcohol you can find, great music and DJ. If you’re a weekender, you have to get there early because it fills up quick. Epiphany Martini with Grey Goose La Poire or a St. Germain elderflower liqueur with a tiny splash of Veuve Clicquot Champagne are some great drinks to try out there.45 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard NW Atlanta, Georgia 30308
If you’re ever in the Highlands, this Rooftop is definite visit for some high-grade burgers. From double-bacon burgers to some of “Atlanta’s Best Tator Tots”, it’s definitely an experience. Once you walk in, you can tell by the sleek design of the interior that you’re in for a good experience. Even if you don’t get a cold brew, you have to get a milkshake which is one of the best items on the menu.664 N. Highland Ave. Atlanta, Ga 30318
Looking for a good margarita, then check out this great cantina. Ranging from all sorts of flavors such as watermelon, lime, and all other sorts of flavors. This spot will give you numerous reasons to not get your food to-go. Tin Lizzy’s describes their food as Flex-Mex, which is similar to Tex-Mex but more flair.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated rooftop bar to go have a few drinks at, then head over to the Glenn Hotel. Located close to the CNN Headquarter, it is one of the popular places in Atlanta during the summer. One of the chill places, on occasional nights, there is a DJ that entertains the crowd there.110 Marietta St NW Atlanta, GA 30303
