As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, Seattle’s rooftop patios seem like the place to be. After all, official patio season will be here before you know it. So we thought we’d make a list of some of the spots that you need to check out. Here are some of the best rooftop patios you can enjoy in Seattle this spring.

Patio Cielo at Mezcaleria Oaxaca

This is our favorite spot for authentic Oaxacan eats. They also just so happen to have one of Seattle’s best patios. It’s a great spot to catch the sunset, enjoy a drink and look over Pine Street. Check it out if you’re looking for some great eats, drinks, and of course a covered patio with a lively atmosphere.

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
Hours: Daily 5 PM-12 AM

Enjoy those views, Seattle!
