Summer, summertime... I love summer and I love being outside when it's not too hot! I also enjoy catching up with my girlfriends and having a drink or two at a chic location. So, when it comes to rooftop bars, I'm a HUGE fan - especially when the music is diverse and the bar has great food options!
Here's a list I put together of some of the best and beautiful rooftop bars South Florida has to offer!
Its name is straight to the point (lol), but this beautiful bar is pretty new and located in West Las Olas. In my opinion, they may be home of the best Happy Hour options for women in the city. From 4-7PM on Tuesday through Saturday, ladies enjoy complimentary wine and cocktails. Plus 50% off food. $5 Titos and $10 hand-crafted cocktails. The food is amazing and you'll for sure order seconds (or thirds) of the Buffalo Chicken Empanadas. You can sit back, relax and enjoy 'a garden in the sky' while the DJ plays diverse Top 40 music.
This rooftop bar for creatives has the perfect mix of everything you love - drinks, food, and shopping! Yes, you can shop at their market filled with brands who 'have a deep commitment to sustainability' on the first floor. When you get to the rooftop you can sip on their $5 Happy Hour drinks (Tuesday - Friday from 4-8 PM). Their FoodHall features international food options - and all of them will satisfy your taste buds!
Headed out on a Thursday? This rooftop bar will put you in your 1960's #TBT feels with it's furniture and charm. It's located at the top of The Dalmar in Ft. Lauderdale. It's cute menu has sketched pictures of it's signature drinks so you'll know exactly what you're ordering - and if you want to be on 'Cruise Control' or 'Adventurous' for the night. Even though you'll be able to see the beach from this view, leave the beach attire at home and dress comfortable but 'in a fashion that compliments the atmosphere' (cute/chic).
Want a nice Miami night out? This is the restaurant/lounge you'll want to bring your girls to. You can enjoy a nice dinner and drinks with a DJ bumpin' music all night long and they show the big games on a huge screen.Their dinner menu has a three-course option and you can also order sushi, burgers,pizza, tacos and more. And if you're a hookah type of girl, those are available to rent, too! With almost 5,000 feet of space inside and outside, there's room for everyone - and no cramped space.
This rooftop bar is the perfect place to go as a pregame before a crazy night out. It's located in Wynwood so it has an artsy backdrop and feel. They have tons of social events that feature live bands, DJs , and so much more! With menus served on a mini-clipboard this place is anything but ordinary. The food items are amazing! And for those hot summer nights, try a Boozy Popsicle...a childhood fave made up of smoke pineapple mezcal (so yummy!).
