It’s 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.

It’s an upscale bar so you can’t complain about the price of the drinks because it’s a given. I love both, the indoor and outdoor patio decoys and furnitures.3377 Peachtree Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30326
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
Although there are two locations, I am recommending the location in Little 5 Points. This restaurant is known for its gourmet pizza. Panini, fresh salads, and lets not forget the beer, this is one of the best places in Little 5 Points to check out. They also cater to the crowd that loves seasonal craft beers as well. The rooftop scene here gives a nice view of the skyline as well.337 Moreland Ave
Atlanta, GA. 30307
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.
Atlanta, GA 30305
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
8. Shake Shack
There is lots of seating on the rooftop patio and lots of shade for those hot sunny days.3035 Peachtree Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30305
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.415 Memorial Dr SE Atlanta, GA 30312
10. Der Biergarten
If you’re looking for some good, authentic German food and a wide selection of beer, then this is your place. Located in Downtown Atlanta, indulge yourself in the German culture with this 7,000 square foot indoor/outdoor complete with a German-made model train circling the interior ceiling.300 Marietta Street Atlanta, GA 30313
On the corner of 11th Street and West Peachtree Street, this boardwalk-like restaurant serves some great seafood. From their award-winning Lobster to the ice-cold beer, this restaurant has an upstairs patio to enjoy a visit on during the nice weather. Located in Midtown, Steamhouse Lounge’s landmark second floor is definitely a visit.1051 W. Peachtree Street Atlanta, Ga 30309
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
