Sip cocktails. Admire the spectacular views. Feel suave. Gently sway to the rhythm of the house beats. Feel kind of like Beyonce... almost.I'm all about buckets o' beer and a messy basket of wings, but it's helpful to throw in a dash of class from time to time. Okay, not helpful—necessary. A date night or an evening with friends at a swank joint adds just the right amount of fancypants to your routine... and the upstairs, outdoor lounge at Rooftop 866 is the perfect amount of posh. Situated atop the Renaissance Midtown, Rooftop's open-air lounge feels like a hidden garden in the heart of the city. While you're kicking back on a cushy sofa or inside a cabana, sipping a mojito and soaking up the view, you might feel like some kind of L.A. a-lister—but the scenery here is pure Midtown ATL, served straight-up with a spectacular view of the neighborhood. Surrounded by a panoramic skyline view, lounging amidst lush greenery, herbs, and produce, partaking in a handcrafted, fresh cocktail from the bar while hobnobbing over the sleek outdoor fireplaces... sorry, what's a sports bar again?
Something hidden deep inside the most primal instincts of humankind urges us to seek higher ground (and colder beverage) on rooftops and patios when summer hits—especially after the sun goes down. And if we can eat, drink, and be merry in the process, better yet. Happily, Rooftop's fresh, botanical cocktails and bar bites are as sought-after as its scenic vista. Nosh on small plates like a prosciutto grilled cheese, ahi tuna nachos, or an ice cream sandwich (hey, nothing wrong with skipping ahead to the sweet stuff). Libations-wise, the Always Sonny mixes pear vodka, apple juice, St. Germaine, and lime juice—liquid air conditioning, I call it. Oh, and if you're really looking to cool down with something tasty? Two words: boozy pops. So, sip cocktails, feel suave, gently sway to the rhythm of the house beats. Feel kind of like Beyonce, almost. Yeah, we don't think you'll be missing Coors drafts and soggy tots, either.
