Booze With a View — the Rooftop Bars Worthy of Summer's Final Days
Rooftop bars have been rocking it for decades, but the allure of panoramic views has really stolen the show recently.
We don’t have to tell you how awesome it is to be on a rooftop. There are unrivaled selfle potential, views that can’t be replicated, breezes, sunshine, moonshine (both kinds), and pools. There is also, of course, the fact that life is just generally better when you’re hanging out in a garden in the sky.
From Dallas to West Hollywood, we have collected some of our favorite rooftop bars for spending the remaining days of summer.

1. Soda Bar at the NYLO South Side in Dallas
Infinity pool? Check. Specialty cocktails? Check. View of a funky green building? Check. From happy hour to the wee hours, this is where the beautiful people in Dallas come to be fabulous alfresco. The only thing that might keep you from this Dallas rooftop bar is the fact that it is off the beaten path. But remember, the best cowboys love going off the trail.

2. Rooftop pool at The London in West Hollywood
This place was designed in the style of a refined British garden. Gordon Ramsay, one of the most Michelin-awarded chefs on Earth, has personally crafted the menu of nibbles. Yet, this rooftop is loved for these two words: “pool party.” If you want a taste of how some really pretty people mix luxury, lounging, and a bit of ludicrousness, reserve a cabana here toward the end of the day, when the crowd starts coming in. If it’s peace and quiet you’re after, come early — they serve that during the day.
