The Best Rooftop Bars in Miami Summer 2019

rooftop

Finding rooftop bars in Miami has always been a harder task, which is kind of surprising. Miami is not a skyscraper city like New York and many of the rooftop spaces we have available are reserved just for vacationing hotel guests. Thankfully, that has changed. 

With the recent Brickell and Downtown explosion, it has given some amazing rooftop spots and even relatively small neighborhoods like Wynwood and Buena Vista are also adding to the rooftop options.  We love this, especially because many of the miami beach and miami bars aren’t content with just good views. These places are a great way to see Miami from a different perspective. Time your visit with a memorable Miami sunset and prepare to be wowed. 

 

Sugar

788 Brickell Plz , Miami  FL 33131

 

The elevator will pass 40 floors before you finally reach, Sugar, the ultra trendy rooftop lounge at the EAST hotel. Remain patient and soon you’ll be rewarded with 360-views of the city and surrounding waterways, Asian-themed cocktails (like the Sweet Life, a sugar-y cocktail blended with Thai iced tea, lemon and whiskey) and a place that feels more like a secluded, storybook garden than a bar. If you time it wrong, you will have to wait in line to get to Sugar. And sometimes that line is very long. On Friday and Saturday nights, that line is almost always very long. The bar is small—maybe the size of a basketball court—so capacity is limited. If you really don’t want to wait, your best bet is to arrive early, before the happy hour crowd, and you should be fine.

 

WATR at the 1 rooftop at 1 Hotel & Homes 

2341 Collins Ave , Miami FL 33139

 

There’s no escaping the beach when you book a room at this unforgettable beachfront property, which sits on an entire city block. The nature-inspired interiors bring the sea inside via reclaimed wood structures and a neutral color palette with sandy tones and beachy (off) whites. The vibe is decidedly Zen, and at night the sense is that you’re back in South Beach, where a stylish rooftop pool and bar gives way to one of the city’s best rooftop parties, lasting way into the wee hours. Enjoy views stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to South Beach’s Art Deco rooftops and Biscayne Bay while basking in the sun, on top of the clouds at South Beach's largest rooftop pool, located 18 floors above the beach enjoying a Peruvian influenced Japanese cuisine menu. The soundtrack is more akin to breaking waves than the usual club bangers you hear in these parts. There’s just something about the laid back vibe of this place that makes you never want to leave. 

 

 

Astra 

2103 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127 - Wynwood 

 

Astra is a Greek concept with a retractable roof and seating for more than 350 guests. Inspired by the lively lounges of Mykonos, Astra brings a rooftop bar in the heart of Wynwood. The place is pretty roomy at 10,000-square-feet and offers proper tables for dinner or more casual seating options for sipping and relaxing. The bar is the newest member of Wynwood rooftop spots (a very small club). Expect Greek, both on the seafood-heavy menu and behind the bar with mastika and ouzo. To eat, guests will find dishes such as horiataki (a Greek salad), paidakia (grilled lamb chops) and more Greek options. The bar will serve some signature cocktails as well as boozy Greek specialties like mastika and ouzo. Astra has plans for a weekend brunch, rooftop yoga and more special events in the future.

 

Vista

5020 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137

 

A very tiny rooftop lounge—but a rooftop lounge nonetheless! Vista lives in the charming Upper Buena Vista retail complex and serves some really tasty food that leans towards rustic Italian cuisine. You must get a table on the rooftop deck. Mostly outdoors, with an expansive bar and just-opened rooftop, vista is where rustic Italian cuisine meets tropical boho vibes. Food runs the gamut from traditional pasta dishes and charcuterie spreads to seasonally inspired local eats, like the flavorful Florida snapper over sweet coconut rice. There’s plenty to drink, too, such as wines by the glass and bottle and a shortlist of handcrafted cocktails. The perfect romantic spot with a 150-year-old banyan tree that shades the cozy space.

 

Juvia 

1111 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139

 

Eclectic food and drink, plus South Beach views in an ultra-modern space atop a designer parking garage with a phenomenal view, which diners take in from the penthouse level of the famed Herzog & de Meuron-designed Lincoln Road parking garage. The views as well as the talent, is prodigious. In the kitchen is Laurent Cantineaux, a protégé of Daniel Boulud; former Nobu chef Sunny Oh; and pastry chef Gregory Gourreau, who honed his sweet tooth under the tutelage of Alain Ducasse and François Payard. Together, the trio create a wonderfully eclectic menu of East-meets-West-meets-Paris dishes.

 

Wet Deck 

485 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131

This rooftop club, pool and lounge—formerly known as Fifty Ultra Lounge—has one of the best and highest views in the city. It's the ideal place to spend an evening, and it might just keep you off of the beach… forever. 50 stories up, the swanky poolside deck and lounge is anchored by an infinity pool, and accented by serene views of the coastline, private cabanas, and soothing lounge music will make you feel like you’re right on the beach, but without the threat of sand or children invading your personal space. Lounge in the chaises and enjoy the luxury of tropical cocktails and light snacks delivered to your chair side that you didn’t even have to make yourself.
