Denver boasts some of the best views of any major city in the country. There’s no better way to take in those views than from one of the many stellar rooftop patio bars this summer! We’ve put together a list of some of our favorites or ones on our summer bucket list below!
From the craft beer to the cocktails and the food, Ale House locally sources everything as a tribute to Colorado’s craft character. Ale House has another incredible location in LoHi with amazing views of the South Platte River and Downtown Denver from their own rooftop patio. Everything about the Ale House will make you appreciate the great city we are lucky to call home!
10 Barrel Brewing Co.
If you’re heading to the RiNo area, this brewery based out of Bend, Oregon is a “can’t-miss”! The brewpub opened in 2016 with two-stories, multiple bars, and one of the best rooftop patios in Denver. There’s something for everyone with their 24 freshly brewed beers on tap!
Denver is well known for its views, and it’s hard to beat the incredible views from 54thirty. The rooftop bar is located at the top of Le Méridien in downtown Denver and is the highest open-air, seasonal rooftop bar in the city. Sit under the string lights and enjoy an Elevated Old Fashioned and tasty avocado hummus. Head up there on a Thursday evening to accompany your drinks with live Elevated Beats by Manos.
We saved one of the best and most talked about for last with Avanti! In the heart of LoHi, Avanti has been a staple in the Highlands since they opened their doors in 2015. European markets and food truck roundups provided the inspiration for the seven different restaurants and food hall concept. With an extensive array of food offerings and an endless lineup of craft beer, cider, wine, and cocktails, the Avanti rooftop is a must for any Denverite this summer.
