Best Rooftop Bars in Sarasota

With the weather finally cooling down, it’s the perfect time to be outdoors and enjoy the beautiful Sarasota views. One of the best ways to see all of Sarasota is by rooftop, as not only can you see the old-style architecture of historic downtown, but also the glorious Bay. Enjoy a night out on the town or just soak all of Sarasota in by visiting one (or all three) of these awesome rooftop bars:

The Westin Sarasota 

Located right across from Marina Jack, The Westin has a breathtaking view of the harbor and is a great sunset or late-night destination (even locals come here!). With a reasonably-priced drinks and appetizers, you won’t want to leave!

Art Ovation Hotel

If you’re an art lover, this is the rooftop bar for you! Located off Palm Avenue, the rooftop bar and pool area provides beautiful views of downtown Sarasota, as well as the Bay, and has a variety of artwork throughout the hotel. The rooftop bar has speciality cocktails not offered in the bar inside the lobby, so make sure to check it out!

Perpective Rooftop Bar

As one of the newer rooftop bars in Sarasota, Perspective offers a “hip” vibe, along with amazing views of the sunset and Bay and attentive bar staff. The views after dark are just as stunning, showcasing downtown in all its beauty. On top of the fun party atmosphere on Saturday nights, there are pool parties every Sunday, so there’s a little bit of everything for everyone!
