It’s summer which means we’re all looking for some rooftop bars in Boston with the most breathtaking views and delicious cocktails. The good news is, there are several to choose from. Whether it’s the rooftop of a hotel, a restaurant or whether it has a pool, there are so many different types of rooftop bars depending on which type of vibe you want. There are also several different areas you can find a great rooftop bar. From the North End to the Seaport to Southie, there really is a great rooftop bar for every walk of life.
Why do we love rooftop bars? Many of us love being outside, especially where we can see gorgeous views of the city. In the summer, being outside helps us relieve stress and reduce tension after a long day or week of work. It beats being inside which we do all year round. Summertime means being outside and drinking your favorite sangria, martinis, margaritas etc. Now the only drawback to rooftop bars is, there is only so much room. This means, you could be waiting for a long time just to get into your favorite spot. So the bottom line is, whatever your plan is, just be patient and plan for a long night.
For the most part, these bars are open during the summer months, although there some that may stay open year round and transform into the ultimate winter hot spot complete with igloos. Regardless, we’ll make sure we mention days and hours each bar is open so you can make your decision of when you’d want to visit.
These bars aren’t ranked in any way. They’re just mentioned based on reviews and choices you have in Boston for a beautiful summer night on the town. Enjoy!
