Dallas' Hottest Rooftop Bars and Restaurants

Jul 26th, 2017

The Dallas skyline, characterized by the “green” Bank of America Plaza, Renaissance Tower, and Fountain Place, is one worthy of admiration. Whether you’d rather admire the entire skyline from afar or a stretch of it from downtown, here are 10 Dallas rooftops where you can appreciate it an apertif, bite to eat, or digestiv.

32 Degree Rooftop Bar

If you like your beer well-chilled, you’ll probably like 32 degrees. This Plano bar, located above Urban Pizzeria, pours beer from its taps at freezing temperatures. Select liquors are served at temperatures below zero, and enjoyed over views of the entire Dallas skyline from afar. 32 Degree is a ten-minute drive from the luxury Richardson apartments at AMLI Galatyn Station.

Double Eagle Steak House

The uptown location of Del Frisco’s popular Dallas steakhouse chain offers nice perspectives for viewing the city’s uptown and downtown skylines. If you live in AMLI Quadrangle, this upscale wine-and-dine experience is a five-minute McKinney Trolley ride from your apartment.

Happiest Hour

Aptly named, Happiest Hour slashes off the price of all alcoholic beverages between 4 and 7pm on weekdays. The centrally located bar also boasts great skyline views, and is a 15-minute walk from AMLI Design District and AMLI Quadrangle.


Luxury department store Forty Five Ten’s 4th-floor wraparound terrace restaurant, Mirador, provides a nice setting for admiring the downtown skyline, Joule hotel, and the “Eye” sculpture. The upscale restaurant and bar is a ten-minute drive from the AMLI on Maple’s Medical District apartments.


Open since February, Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant Nikkei draws crowds for a few reasons. Innovative cuisine and a well-designed interior make the dining room a treat. And the Dallas rooftop up top offers a great vantage point for viewing the uptown and downtown skylines, particularly the beautiful Crescent building. There, you can enjoy exotic, Pisco-infused cocktails like the Nikkei margarita with yuzu juice. Nikkei is a five-minute walk from AMLI’s uptown Dallas apartments.

The Quarter Bar

Inspired by New Orleans’ French Quarter, this Uptown Dallas hotspot is known for its burgers, flatbreads, tacos, cocktails, and magnificent skyline views. The courtyard is a quaint place to enjoy Sunday brunch from popular neighboring restaurant Bread Winners while the McKinney Trolley rolls by. Quarter Bar is less than ten minutes’ drive from AMLI Quadrangle.

Saint Rocco’s at Trinity Groves

New York-style Italian cuisine pleases senses of taste and smell at this Trinity Grove restaurant. Views of the downtown skyline, Trinity River, and Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge from Saint Rocco’s third-floor Dallas rooftop are a sight to behold. Saint Rocco’s is a five-minute drive from AMLI Design District and ten minutes from AMLI on Maple.

SODA Bar at the Nylo Hotel

Also ten minutes from AMLI on Maple, the SODA Bar boasts amazing skyline views from south of downtown. An infinity pool, expertly-prepared cocktails, and quality appetizers help make this Nylo Hotel Dallas rooftop a hot spot.

TNT Tacos & Tequila

Adjacent to AMLI Quadrangle, TNT serves tacos, burritos, premium tequila cocktails, and other southwestern fare. Visit the small chain’s Dallas rooftop location to satisfy your taco craving, get a good buzz going, and appreciate the views of uptown and downtown Dallas.

The Nines

The only proper night club on this list, The Nines is known for its electronic music, aerial acrobatic performances, and craft cocktails. The gratifying views over Deep Ellum and downtown Dallas from the rooftop make it worth a visit even if clubbing is not your thing.
