Fog Room

Perched above 2nd Avenue in downtown Seattle, this is more of a unique terrace than a traditional rooftop patio. That being said, it’s hard to deny Fog Room from earning a spot on this list. The modern-chic decor is gorgeous, the downtown views are stunning, and the food and drink menus are insanely good. Enjoy!

Where: 1610 2nd Ave

The Nest


Get a little boujee and hit the top-shelf of Seattle rooftop bars/patios with a visit to The Nest. Come for the views, stay for the cocktails, and leave because you’re broke (like us), or stay a little longer ‘cuz you’re flush with cash. Either way, you’ll enjoy the delicious menu and the stunning views.
