Drinks With a View – Rooftop and Patio Destinations

It’s time to put away those winter clothes (unless you’re a cool kid who wears scarfs in the summer), awake from your winter hibernation and set out for some rooftop cocktails.  Celebrate your freedom from the cold with an ice-cold drink, or two, as you enjoy sweeping city views and heavenly bodies of water.

Captain Blacks – If you find yourself wandering in the Capitol Hill neighborhood head over to Captain Blacks for tasty food and enjoy their 2 outdoor decks for some fresh air.  They offer a daily Happy Hour from 4-6 $3.50 drafts, $13 Pitchers, $4 well drinks, $2 Rainer, $8 pitchers, food menu from $4-$6.

Eastlake Bar & Grill – With sweeping views of Lake Union, Eastlake’s Tiki Bar and patio offers great food and drinks while watching the boats and kayaks float by.  With Happy Hour twice almost every day from 3-6 and 9-close $2 PBR’s, $3-$7 food specials + discounted cocktails, drafts, wine + well drinks what’s not to love?

Hard Rock Cafe – Seattle boasts one of the best music scenes and rightfully so.  In the heart of Downtown you can head over to this Inter-National Chain.  If your not interested in the music relax at their rooftop lounge with a fire pit and a stiff drink.

The Pink Door – Stop in here for beautiful views of Elliott Bay from their patio. There is always live entertainment and it’s always free.  Enjoy the trapeze artist swinging over diners as they feast on home spun Italian-American fare.  Their Happy Hour runs from 3-6 and 10-1am Monday-Thursday and 3-6 on Fridays 1/2 priced pasta, appetizers from $2-$5, $4 well drinks, $3 local microbrews, $4 house wine.

Tia Lou’s – Located in Belltown this club/lounge throws some crazy patio party’s in the Summer.  If your not in the dancing mood take refuge in one of the private cabanas.  Tia Lou’s has DJ’s every night they are open which is Wednesdays-Saturdays 10-2am
