So, without wasting any more of your precious patio time, let’s check out 8 of the best!

The Mountaineering Club

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

Monkey Loft

“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

Mezcaleria Oaxaca

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

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.

Where: Thompson Seattle, 110 Stewart Street

Captain Blacks

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

Frolik

Where: 1415 5th Ave

MBar

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!
