12 Rooftop Bars That Are Just as Alive Year-Round as They Are in the Summer

By Kelli Acciardo, Parade

Summer is prime time for rooftop bars—and imbibing from tippity-top spaces. And with socially distant practices being put into place, we can’t help but migrate towards these lounges in the sky when the need for a cocktail and a light bite calls. There’s just something about drinking under the stars (or sun) with sweeping vistas that you can’t beat.


Nowadays most rooftop sanctuaries are even keeping their high rise hot spots heated or enclosed (via tarps and retractable ceilings) and basically run with a business as usual vibe. Which obviously we appreciate, well beyond summer. While the warmer states can get away with the whole outdoor living 24-7 thing, New Englanders and Midwesterners want in on the action, too. Let’s face it: Even Southern cities can benefit from a heat lamp in the dead of January and February sometimes.

From New York, Boston and Philly, to Denver, San Francisco and Memphis, here’s where to head when you’re not ready to say goodbye to al fresco day drinking and breezy perches with the best views just yet.
