These Atlanta Restaurant Rooftop Patios Come With Serious Views

Outdoor dining and drinking on rooftop patios

View as Map

One of the greatest perks of living in Atlanta is its months-long patio season. Looking for a spot to dine outdoors high above the city streets or amidst the trees? This list features a few rooftop restaurant patios and bars to consider for outdoor dining and drinking while taking in some stellar views.

Some previously listed restaurants and bars on this map remain temporarily closed for dine-in service and therefore have been removed.

Disclaimer: A number of Atlanta restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the Georgia Department of Health. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines
