These Rooftop Watering Holes Are Perfect To Enjoy The Stormy Nor’westers

Sayani posted on 05 May

With the nor’westers having already set foot in our town, there’s no better way to enjoy the dramatic downpours than to chill with a drink on a rooftop lounge bar. Here’s a list of watering holes that are just perfect.

Deck 88

The Astor’s outdoor bar, Deck 88, has a mellow relaxed vibe that is perfect to soak up the dramatic weather. Sit out on the plush chaise lounges on the faux deck that is lined with vertical gardens, and enjoy the winds and rain with a potent mix. Best of all when the rain gets too strong, they open up the waterproof canopy overhead. Alternately, you can sit under the gazebo and enjoy the pitter-patter of the downpour.

Monkey Bar

Our go-to watering hole Monkey Bar is just the place to be if you’re looking for some good music, scrumptious food and a potent drink to enjoy the rains and the beautiful view of the cityscape. The wooden interiors, glass walls and the outdoor section in a sky-high location make for an amazing setting to sip on some sangria and experience the thundering rains.

Liqua Poolside Bar

Perched atop Senses Hotel in Salt Lake, the Liqua Poolside Bar is another place to hit if you want to enjoy the stormy showers with some heady drink to relax with. What makes this place all the more exciting is the enticing blue pool right at the heart of it. Sit by the pool with a drink and enjoy the cool drizzle pitter-patter on it. And the added bonus, a fantastic view of the surrounding landscape.

With the rooftop kept partially open and partially covered by a glass and wood enclosure, you can choose to sit out in the open-air to let the breeze and mist soak you or can opt to stay indoors and watch the rain clouds play out. The kitschy laid-back vibe of the place is perf for a relaxed evening, and don’t forget to try out their popular drink of Scrappy Passion.
