With warm weather finally upon us, Bostonian's are starting to wander towards fruity summer cocktails and the rooftops they’re served on. While a chilled glass of rose or buckets of Corona’s are almost always guaranteed a good time, the atmosphere in which they’re consumed at may make or break your evening.
Have no fear – with our (major) obsession with rooftops, we have a run down of Boston’s best rooftop bars for any type of night you had in mind – whether it’s after-work drinks (which we’re always down for) or an intimate date with a new crush.
Weeknight Drinks with the Girls:
The Lookout at the Envoy Hotel: Right on the water by Fort Point & overlooking the ever-growing Boston skyline, this hot spot is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of your favorite fruity beverage, while catching up with good friends or co-workers. Whether you're in the mood for micro-brews or craft cocktails, Envoy’s exclusive Outlook menu will help you keep your cool while relaxing around their festive summer fire pits.
Date Night with a View:
Legal Harborside: With shareable plates in the heart of Boston’s Seaport neighborhood, Legal’s Harborside Roof Deck is the perfect place to bring your new crush. While the atmosphere is fun & trendy, the outdoor couches and large booths create a cozy environment perfect for get-to-know-you conversations. Break the ice by slurping down oysters – and top the evening off by watching the sunset with a glass of sangria (we’re partial to the red).
Sunbathing on a Sunday:
Revere Hotel: The rooftop at the Revere Hotel is the hottest place to be on a summer day. Scope out your spot early & spend all day nursing your Sunday scaries with a frozen margarita and a view of the skyline. Bring your laptop for a working Sunday sans shoes and shirt – or enjoy your final hours of freedom while catching a tan. No matter how you choose to end your weekend, the Revere Rooftop has you covered with poolside plates and plenty of vitamin D – just don’t forget the sunscreen. ;)
Burgers and Brews Before the Big Game:
The Baseball Tavern: An earshot away from Fenway Park, this casual staple is the perfect place to kick-off an evening of outdoor activities. They offer inexpensive drinks & a slew of tasty bar treats to satisfy your every need before making your way into the park. With the roof deck open all night, it's also the perfect spot for celebratory post-game beers with crowd-pleasing panoramic views.
These are a few of our favorite summer hangouts, what are your top rooftop destinations this summer?
