The best rooftop bars in San Diego to enjoy a cocktail with a great view.

February 14th, 2019

Many of you know by now that the opportunity for a delicious cocktail is easy to come by. Same goes for bars and restaurants with an incredible ambiance. However, there are some very specific spots in San Diego with stellar rooftop bars.

The Fairweather Rooftop Bar is an incredible tiki bar in San Diego.

Elbowroom

Take for instance Elbowroom at 5225 Kearny Villa Road. This neighborhood bar & grill has large TVs to watch the game, great craft brews, pub eats and of course, the patio view. Best of all, it is pet friendly! Another thing to love about Elbowroom is that they constantly are serving specials. First up, they have their $11.25 lunch deal. They also have a fantastic happy hour from 11 am to 7 pm. Even better, Saturday and Sunday they have their All Day Happy Hour.

Fairweather Rooftop Bar

Then there is the Fairweather Rooftop Bar. Located on top of Rare Form, this tiki bar is serving up excellent food, has great service with even better views. In fact, it is a great way to watch a baseball game as it overlooks Petco Park! Also, do know that you cannot go wrong with their grilled cheese or pina colada with butterscotch liquor.

The Deck at Moonshine Flats

Up next is an indoor/outdoor bar called The Deck at Moonshine Flats. We highly suggest hanging out at this spot if you are looking for a rustic yet sophisticated sports bar. They even have live music! Along with delicious BBQ, play all sorts of lawn games here with a cocktail or beer in hand.

Upper East Bar

In the mood for something a bit more chic? Then head on over to Upper East Bar. This mod lounge on the roof of Hotel Solamar is great for anyone looking to keep things sophisticated and mellow with a cocktail in hand. The perfect place to socialize in Downtown San Diego, Upper East Bar also hosts some great events including Saturday Singles Night. Additionally, we suggest heading to this outdoor bar during the day while lounging by the pool.

From chic sports bars to tiki bars your outdoor cocktails with magnificent views are everywhere near AV8. While our weather may be gloom at the moment, once Spring hits put this list to use, visit any one of these rooftop bars, and have a fantastic time. Cheers!
