From fine dining to boisterous brews, everything tastes better with a view of the Holy City skyline. Just don’t be surprised if you never want to come down.

The Watch Rooftop Kitchen and Spirits | The Restoration Hotel, 75 Wentworth St.

This farm-to-table rooftop restaurant offers Southern dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We recommend The Watch Burger with a glass of white wine to toast the view.

Satellite Bar | Stars Grill Room, 495 King St.

Perched above Upper King Street, it’s your next spot to soak in the panoramic views and escape the hustle and bustle of the street below. Try sipping the Daydream Believer a zero-proof drink withwatermelon, coconut water, and lime.

Citrus Club | The Dewberry Charleston, 334 Meeting St.

Welcome to the highest rooftop in Charleston. Explore steepled city views atop Dewberry’s eighth-floor terrace and enjoy a variety of cocktails including early bird + zero proof, plus light bites.

Pavilion Bar | Market Pavilion Hotel, 225 E. Bay St.

Grab a drink and lounge by Charleston’s only rooftop cascading pool. Who doesn’t love a Skyline Martini with their skyline view?

Élevé Rooftop Restaurant + Lounge | 55 Wentworth St.

Get lost in the garden atop the Grand Bohemian Hotel. Élevé has you covered from brunch to dinner with vibrant cuisine and specialty cocktails.

Fiat Lux | Hotel Bennett, 404 King St.

Sip a seasonal cocktail + munch on some duck fat fries while enjoying this panoramic view of the Holy City skyline. We’ve got our eyes on the Not Your Mom’s Mangorita.

Henry’s | 54 N. Market St.

We have the perfect night planned for you. Snag dinner on the canopied upper deck, finish by savoring a beer in a rocking chair on the porch, then catch live entertainment at Henry’s Music Hall.

The Rooftop at The Vendue | The Vendue Hotel, 19 Vendue Range

It’s as the name says: This is the rooftop, voted “Best Rooftop Bar” by Charleston City Paper since 2007. Take your friends to enjoy summer drinks, bites like the margherita flatbread, and views for miles.

Revelry Brewing | 10 Conroy St.

Get boisterous with beers on tap on Revelry’s rooftop. We love the $20 beer bucket deals + craft beer, paired with a good ‘ole sushi burrito. We’d recommend enjoying it fried.

We’re big fans of a rooftop bar in the Holy City — especially during the summer. There’s really no better place to enjoy good weather, great company, and scenic views. Hope you found a new spot to enjoy this summer + feel free to share your favorite with us.
