The Best Rooftop Bars and Restaurants in Philadelphia
Summer in Philly means dining and drinking alfresco
Grab a drink with a view at a few of Philadelphia’s top bars and restaurants featuring roofdeck or elevated seating.
With the opening of the brand-new Assembly Rooftop Lounge at the Logan Hotel and the expected opening of SkyGarten atop one of Center City’s tallest buildings, Philadelphia’s skyward hospitality has reached new heights. While sleek Assembly offers soaring, stunning views eight stories across the Ben Franklin Parkway, SkyGarten promises German and craft beer 51 stories up.
Socialize in style at the Hotel Monaco’s Stratus Rooftop Lounge or dine at a solid standby like City Tap House or Standard Tap to enjoy some fresh air from above.
Assembly and SkyGarten join a growing roster of the region’s restaurants and bars that deliver up-in-the-atmospheric drama along with delicious eats and drinks. Below, you’ll find a few of our favorite places to escape the hustle and bustle of street-level dining.
