5 Rooftops We Can’t Wait to Party At


The unofficial start to summer has arrived and we are ready for all that it has to offer! Sunny skies and warm temperatures make for the ideal setting for outdoor activities. And one of those activities is exploring all the rooftop bars and restaurants that we can. We compiled a list of the rooftops we can’t wait to party at with friends, family, and coworkers this summer. If any are in your area, check them out for a small gathering or a large private event!

1. Green Fig — New York City

Who loves rooftops more than New Yorkers do?! When the summer comes, rooftops in NYC are popping with guests trying to enjoy the great weather, expensive cocktails, and gorgeous city views. Because — let’s face it — there is no such thing as a bad rooftop view when you’re in New York City. Green Fig, located on the rooftop of the Yotel hotel at 570 Tenth Ave, is no exception to this rooftop extravaganza. The East, Middle, and West sections of the rooftop allow for your group to spread out among the area and utilize as much or little space as needed. Summer coming is a reason in itself to celebrate, so check out Green Fig for a dinner for two or a large group gathering to enjoy this rooftop!

2. Hive & Honey Rooftop — Irvine, Calif.

Calling all West Coast rooftop lovers who live close to Irvine for this next rooftop bar. Hive & Honey, a classy rooftop located on the 16th floor of the Marriott Irvine Spectrum, is the spot to be. Just by looking at photos of the rooftop, it is clear how trendy and chic this space is for a large group gathering, date night, or an outing with a few friends. Enjoy a specialty cocktail, like a Rooftop Marg, H&H Old Fashioned, Beez Kneez, or Golden Hour while enjoying stunning views of the city below.


3. Jason Aldean’s Kitchen and Rooftop Bar — Nashville

If you live in the Nashville area or are visiting soon, Jason Aldean’s Kitchen and Rooftop Bar must be on your list of places to go. Jason Aldean’s embodies the downtown Nashville experience, with live music, cocktails, and classic southern bites, like waffle cornbread, hot chicken, and wings. There is no party like a Nashville party, so bring your group to Jason Aldean’s to take in the whole Nashville experience while looking over a bustling Broadway Street.

4. E11even Miami – Miami

Let’s head further down south to the great city of Miami for another rooftop experience at E11even Miami. The nightclub within E11even will be busy throughout the late hours of the night, but the rooftop can offer a unique event experience overlooking the city to interested groups. The rooftop provides indoor and outdoor dining options, comfortable sofa seating and communal tables, specialty cocktails, and more under a retractable roof. Dress it up or down for a casual or formal gathering. The rooftop can accommodate up to 250 people for private functions, corporate events, or social gatherings of any kind.
