HG Sply Co.

As one of the preeminent rooftop bars in the city, HG has the patio game on lock. Enjoy the view from Greenville Ave. while feasting on nachos loaded with Mexican pulled pork or smoky carrot hummus and drinking cocktails like the frozen Double Under, a frosty cocktail that combines beet-infused tequila, lime juice, and rosemary turbinado sugar.

77 Degrees

Copy Link

77 Degrees quickly became the go-to spot in Vickery Park for Dallas’s youngest rooftop enthusiasts. It’s a scene. But the skyline views on the double rooftop patios are worth it, at least one time.

Upside West Village

Copy Link

A newer addition to Uptown is Upside West Village in the Canopy by Hilton Hotel, which boasts one of the best views of the Dallas skyline. Order up some apps, including shishito peppers and edamame or a crab roll to go with their impressive wine list. Or, try out a custom cocktail. They’re all named for notable women, and the Ava Gardner and Veronica Lake are both fabulous choices.

The Quarter Bar

Copy Link

This longtime Uptown haunt keeps drinkers coming back with its extensive draft selection and its expansive, multi-level indoor/outdoor space. Park on the roof and prepare to sip reasonably priced bottles of wine like Miraval rosé, or more potent libations like a classic Vieux Carre cocktail.

This massive indoor-outdoor bar near Victory Park boasts a giant ground-floor beer garden, indoor bar area, plus outdoor rooftop patio.

Happiest Hour

The Green Room

Sidestep the bottom floor in this Deep Ellum dive and go straight for the stairs, where one of the best views of Downtown Dallas in town awaits. It’s breezy enough to survive the summer heat.

Harlowe MXM

Copy Link

This Deep Ellum favorite boasts a massive rooftop space that’s often bustling with a party-friendly crowd. Bring a few friends, and sip Palomas or a White Negroni while sharing snacks like loaded fries doused in white queso and covered in pulled pork, or the famed “Cookies” dumplings.

Vietnamese eats, gorgeous cocktails, and an even better view collide at this rooftop favorite. Snack on bright spring rolls while drinking super-fruity cocktails garnished with everything from chia seeds to flowers to sour candies.

Waterproof

Copy Link

A relative newcomer to the scene, Waterproof at the Statler Hotel has all the appeal of a rooftop under the expansive Downtown skyline with the added panache of a pool for warm weather day-drinking. Pro-tip: it gets crowded quickly here, which makes getting to Waterproof early a must.
