The White Lion Bar

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.

Seven Lucky Gods

A venue known for some of the best Japanese cuisine, Seven Lucky Gods also has a beautiful rooftop terrace, perfect for soaking up the sun. Order innovative sushi bites, alongside cracking cocktails and the prettiest views of Bristol.


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.


Gambas is superb when it comes to cocktail bars in Bristol. Grab a drink and make your way to its rooftop terrace for sky-high views, delish tapas-style plates, and some of the tastiest tipples - we recommend trying the Spanish negroni.
