Did somebody say raise the roof? They must have because we are on our Top 8 Rooftop Bars in Huntsville, Alabama tour!
Our first stop on our tour is where it all began. Take a look at Pourhouse, the first rooftop bar of Huntsville. Some may call it swankey while others say it's comfortable. They have a view that overlooks the city, plus live music that you wouldn’t want to miss. If you’re a person that likes a little extra excitement with your drinks, stop by on Tuesday nights for Trivia Night. Each week there is a different theme, so I hope you’re ready with your vast knowledge of what you love. To go with the atmosphere, Pourhouse has a collection of canned drinks, from beer to wine. Each drink is just as unique as you are. Try some other hard ciders, because customers can't stop raving about them. If hard cider isn't your thing I'm sure you'll find something that suits you just fine.
Do you see that fountain on your left? Well if it makes you feel thirsty, then Bar Vista is just a quick right turn on Williams Avenue away. The second floor of the AC Hotel in downtown Huntsville is the home of BarVista. It is a rooftop bar that is known to have one of the best views of Big Spring Park and downtown Huntsville. They pride themselves in having farm-to-table foods, meaning that it is as fresh as possible when it gets to your table. Plus, their bar menu has over 90 whiskeys, 60 tequilas and a variety of bottled, canned and draft craft beers. They have some of the best cocktails in the area. The ingredients are fresh and each drink contains a unique spirit. If you don't see a cocktail for you on their menu, they say they can make everything from your simple cocktail to an Old Fashioned.
What’s next on the tour? How about some Rhythm.
Look to your left to find Rhythm on Monroe. This is a place with choices. Enjoy your experience with indoor dining, outdoor patio dining, and of course, a rooftop bar. This rooftop is said to be a perfect location to relax or just chill before catching a show. Although this is one rooftop that doesn't have a lot of view, there are some seating options that overlook Big Spring Park. If ambiance is your thing, they have cozy fire pits and comfy seating, a wonderful place for those cool spring nights. Now let's talk about their vast array of cocktails. Where should I start? How about the Phil Collins or the Back and Blackberry Mojito? Oh, and if you need an escape, how about the Passion in Paradise, or the Hot Chocolate Cliffhanger? The Rhythm on Monroe has a collection of whimsical names for their cocktails that makes it hard to decide which to choose next, but once you know what you have a taste for, you are sure to find the drink that jives with you.
Now please follow your navigation over to Moe’s.
When we say top eight, we may think of many things, and Moe’s Original barbeque has to be one of them. It’s tucked away in the building on your right, just past the parking lot. If you want to get something to eat that's award-winning, this is the place to be because Moe's Original BBQ has an award-winning smoked BBQ with Alabama white sauce that'll have you asking for more. But while you're enjoying the sandwich, why not enjoy it on one of their two rooftop terraces with full bars. While there, enjoy the live music, and maybe some Bingo or trivia events. And if you're there long enough, enjoy the sunset whether it's for you, that beautiful date night, or a friend's night out. Get those phones ready because this will definitely be some picture magic.
Shots? No? I must have heard you wrong. I definitely did hear “happy hour,” because our next stop is Stella’s Elixir Lounge there on your right. This is definitely the place you want to be if you need a change of view or custom drinks. Stella's Elixir Lounge is a 4000 square foot lounge that goes from swanky indoor bar to open air rooftop seating. They have cozy fire pits for your enjoyment and a rooftop patio that overlooks Holmes Avenue. Their patio flows through their indoor seating towards a covered patio out back. The rooftop patio prides itself on their cozy couches, classic cocktails, and semi-private cabanas. I know I mentioned happy hour earlier, so if that's your thing stop by Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. for their featured elixirs. If happy hour isn't your thing, Stella's Elixir Lounge has different events every day of the week. Whether it's live music, discounted drinks, or their signature drag show, Stella’s has something for you to enjoy.
We can’t continue our tour without getting a little historical, and we can’t do that without stopping by Revivalist. It’s just past Clinton Avenue, on your right. Revivalist is a bar that prides itself for embracing and reflecting the historic view of Huntsville. Its atmosphere is as high scale as it’s a menu with a bar that takes you back in time to the tavern it originally was. The rooftop itself has a stunning view of the city and when the sun is setting, the light is just right to get that girl's night or night life selfie. But, let’s talk about what you really came here for, the drinks. Whether you want to Rose all day or relax with a nice IPA, Revivalist has something for you. They have an extensive wine collection and a menu that will leave you both intrigued and invested. There is no better place to feel revitalized than Revivalist.
Continuing on, we can’t have a top 8 rooftop bar without Baker and Able. These names may seem familiar because this rooftop bar is named after the two primates that first successfully conquered space. That's right, Baker and Able, were the primates that made it home safely in 1959 after their great spaceflight. Baker and Able is a high-class rooftop bar serving cocktails, small plates and a city view that makes you feel like you're reaching the stars yourself. In honor of their namesakes Baker and Able, the bar has a unique cocktail menu inspired by the primates themselves. I don't know about you but a rooftop bar that has a cocktail called a paper plane has to be something good enough to whisk me away. Just think of this as another location to enjoy your drinks and practice your selfie game, because whatever you get, you’ll want to capture those memories.
Please follow your navigation as we loop around the Madison County Courthouse to get to our last roof top.
Here we are! The last stop on our tour is the Martin Bar & Grill. It is one of our top eight for a reason. It provides comfort to its customers which makes it worth sharing with family and friends. Special events are what they are known for. If you name a holiday or sporting event we are sure the Martin will have your festive needs met. Their selection of casual cocktails and delicious food just makes it even better. Customers rave about their Cajun shrimp pasta, and if you want a drink, many enjoy watching the bartender as they create their artful beverage. If you are looking for a rooftop bar that’s both cozy and sentimental, consider the Martin for your date night or late night needs.
