Summer might be winding down, but there’s still time to enjoy drinking and dining outdoors. In addition to restaurants with great patio areas, there’s plentiful options for rooftop dining as well. Enjoy a cocktail, birria tacos, or the freshest summer seafood catch, while drinking in the views of Puget Sound, Lake Washington, or simply high away from the neighborhood din. From French restaurant Maximilien’s iconic perch above Pike Place Market to MBar’s sleek rooftop at South Lake Union to fire pits and games at Frolik, all of these restaurants and bars offer superb dining experiences.
These rooftop seating areas are popular, so making a reservation beforehand is highly encouraged. Note that some of these spots may close during inclement weather.
As usual, this list is not ranked; it’s organized geographically from west to east.
