Bristol's Best Rooftop Bars
With rolling hills, rainbow-hued houses and the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge, it's not hard to see the beauty in our city. But when viewed from above? It's a whole different ball game. So, the next time the sun decides to shine, make the most of it by heading to one of Bristol's best rooftop bars and terraces. Serving up cocktails with a view, steaming slices of pizza and a bevy of local craft ales, these sky-high spots are set to seriously elevate your summertime sips.
Perched on the corner of Colston Street and Park Row, Zerodegrees is one of the best rooftop bars in Bristol. A supreme summertime spot, this contemporary venue is flooded with light during the day, with guests also having the option to drink on not one, but two terraces.
Boasting a gorgeous waterside terrace, Riverstation is a modern restaurant serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner alongside thirst-quenching cocktails. For an alfresco affair, nab an outdoor table as the sun sets behind Prince Street Bridge.
Part of Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin, The White Lion Bar in Bristol has a huge outdoor area boasting amazing views of Clifton Suspension Bridge and the surrounding hills. The perfect pitstop after a day of exploring, this rooftop stunner is a favourite for its craft ales and gourmet dinners.
The White Rabbit is a chilled-out sanctuary for drinking pints, munching pizza and catching some rays. The plant-covered terrace is a top-notch outdoor drinking spot, offering gorgeous surroundings for getting better acquainted with the pub's huge selection of locally-brewed ales.
Serving up vibrant North African and Mediterranean-inspired dishes, Bambalan in Bristol is also a boozy favourite. What makes it so special? The mega rooftop bar with a view of the city centre slings out gorgeous cocktails and even a huge hot tub to splash about in.
