Savannah is known for the stunning architecture and tree lined squares. One of the best ways to get a birds eye views is to head up to the rooftops. Rooftops are the best way to enjoy a beautiful day and get some great photos in my opinion. Whenever I travel I do some research to see if there are any good rooftops. Savannah has so many great options! Here are my picks for the best rooftops in Savannah.
Myrtle & Rose and Electric Moon Skytop Lounge at Plant Riverside District
The Plant Riverside District has two great rooftops. Myrtle & Rose is a rooftop garden with breathtaking views of the river and city which you can enjoy while you sip on botanically inspired cocktails. I highly recommend the Ginger Lilly, it was my favorite cocktail in Savannah. Also don’t miss out on Sunday jazz brunch. Electric Moon Skytop Lounge offers a higher energy atmosphere with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Here you can enjoy the river views. If you are looking for a snack try out the shrimp corn dogs.
The Lost Square at the Alida
The Lost Square is located at the Alida Hotel across the street from the Plant Riverside District and offers panoramic views. This is a great spot to visit right now as they are featuring igloos on the rooftop. This rooftop has such a great cozy vibe and is the perfect place to watch the sunset with the way it is positioned.
Peregrin at the Perry Lane Hotel
Peregrin located atop the Perry Lane Hotel offers handcrafted premium cocktails and has a more sophisticated vibe. It offers stunning views and is definitely a place to be seen plus you will most definitely get an Instagram worthy shot. You can easily make a reservation on OpenTable, which I love because it is the worst when you show up somewhere that is packed and there isn’t anywhere to go.
The Grove Savannah
The Grove is a casual restaurant and rooftop bar located at City Market. Be sure to grab a champagne pop. The Grove has a small rooftop so I would definitely suggest making an OpenTable reservation here as well. (P.S. these photos do not do the rooftop justice! It was cold and so windy that my mask flew down to the street 🙂 )
Top Deck at the Cotton Sail Hotel
Top Deck is located above The Cotton Sail Hotel and offers a more casual environment for river views. This is definitely one of the bigger rooftop options when it is more than just two of you.
Rocks on the Roof at the Bohemian Hotel
Rocks on the Roof is located at The Bohemian. Grab a drink and some truffle fries to enjoy the river views.
Perch at Local 11 Ten
Perch is located at Local 11 Ten and is right off the south side of Forsyth Park. The wood paneling makes you feel like you are in your own treehouse. This is a great spot when you are in the area by Forsyth Park as most of the other rooftops are by the river.
The Drayton rooftop offers you unbeatable views of City Hall. Unfortunately this rooftop is currently closed, but be sure to check on their site for the most up to date information.
