Being on the water, Boston has some of the best views when it comes to rooftop bars. During the warmer months, who doesn’t love chilling in the clouds with a cocktail in hand? With so many amazing choices, it’s hard to figure out which are worth the hype. We’ve narrowed it down to four we think should be on everyone’s must-visit list.

1. Legal Harborside

270 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210

Hours: 11am-1am everyday


Legal Harborside has been listed as Boston’s best rooftop bar so you know this place is the real deal. Even though it’s only three floors high, this waterfront lounge has amazing views of Boston Harbor that you’ll want to take in for hours. It’s the perfect mix of posh and super chill, with both indoor and outdoor seating you can enjoy in any weather thanks to it’s retractable glass roof and walls. The oysters are a must-eat and go great with their sleek cocktails.

2. Sky Lounge Rooftop and Terrace

65 Seaport Blvd 12th floor, Boston, MA 02210

Hours: 5pm-11pm Monday-Thursday, 5pm-1am Friday, 11am-1am Saturday, 11am-11pm Sunday


Like Legal Harborside, Sky Lounge also operates year round. Located in YOTEL hotel, this bar gives out major airport vibes, but in a posh, first-class way. But the minimalist decor only enhances the gorgeous views of Boston Harbor and the city skyline. Besides the fabulous cocktails and killer views, Sky Lounge also offers a variety of other activities throughout the week like meditation classes and music performances. It really does give you the best of everything.

3. Rooftop@Revere

Revere Hotel Boston Common, Stuart St, Boston, MA 02116

Hours: 11am-12am everyday


Unlike all the other rooftop bars here, this one does not overlook the harbor, it looks over Boston Common. Yet the views of the city skyline definitely shouldn’t be missed. They have lots of fun events you can participate in such as rooftop yoga, oyster shucking classes, and live music. Another cool feature is the pool that is open to the public on weekends during the day. So grab a cocktail (such as their Boston Common Cucumba) and enjoy the sunny and sleek atmosphere.

4. Lookout Rooftop and Bar

70 Sleeper St, Boston, MA 02210

Hours: 4pm-11pm Monday-Wednesday, 4pm-12am Thursday-Saturday, 12pm-11pm Sunday


Lookout Rooftop and Bar boasts being one of the best rooftop bars in America. All of America people! The vibe is elegant, with modern touches and lush views of (you guessed it) Boston Harbor. The atmosphere can seem exclusive with the large VIP area and dressed-for-clubbing people, but that doesn’t mean you should skip out on the killer food and refreshing drinks made with locally sourced ingredients.
