It’s rooftop season, people! Actually, it has been for a while, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get randomly excited about it. In fact, we’re so excited that we have decided to put together a quick list of some of our favorite rooftop patios and bars in Seattle. So, without wasting any more of your precious patio time, let’s check out 8 of the best!
Let’s kick things off with the panoramic views provided by the 16th floor of Graduate Seattle. The Mountaineering Club boasts views of Mount Rainier, downtown Seattle, and Puget Sound. It’s so nice up here you might forget to even eat and drink.
Where: 7700 Sand Point Way NE
“Surprisingly intimate and always bumping” is an easy way to describe Monkey Loft. Oh, and the rooftop is an absolute blast. Like c’ mon, just look at those patio lanterns!
Where: 2915 1st Ave S
There are two Oaxaca locations in town, but the Capitol Hill spot has a stunning patio we can’t ignore. It’s pretty big, it’s pretty sunny, and since opening 5 years ago it’s become a local hotspot.
Where: 422 E Pine Street
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
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.
Where: Thompson Seattle, 110 Stewart Street
With two outdoor decks, some wicked deals, and an unbeatable atmosphere, it’s hard to deny that Captian Blacks is one of Seattle’s favorite spots. Heck, throw in the Southern-inspired dishes and you’ve practically encountered heaven on earth.
Where: 129 Belmont Ave E
Chasing the “true SOCIAL experience”, Frolik has become one of the top restaurant and bars in downtown Seattle.
Where: 1415 5th Ave
Impressive views combined with a club-like ambiance make MBar one of the most impressive rooftop patios in Seattle. Obviously, the rooftop is great, but even the indoor seating provides top-notch atmosphere and sights.
Where: 400 Fairview Ave N – 14th Floor
Now, those aren’t all of the best rooftops and patios in Seattle, but they are a great place to start! We’ll be sure to highlight even more rooftop spots soon!
