2018's 9 Most Loved Boston Rooftop Bars On NativX


There isn't much better than staring out over the city with a drink in hand. Boston is no stranger to awesome rooftops with epic views. We dug through our data and used a little bit of black magic to throw together a list of 9 of the most hyped Boston rooftop bars on NativX. There were some that surprised us and some that made a late run to the top.

There is one thing we know for sure though. We've already chalked these down to visit next year!

The NativX 2017 Boston Rooftop List

1) Envoy Hotel Rooftop (Lookout Rooftop)

70 Sleeper St, Boston, MA 02210


Pro Tip: 

This is a pretty popular rooftop so it makes sense why the NativX community loved to save it! You have to wait in line to go up an elevator so make sure to try to go off peak hours. The views are absolutely worth it though. This is a great place to meet up with friends for a quick drink.


2) Felipe's Taqueria

21 Brattle St, Cambridge, MA 02138


Pro Tip: 

Steps to have a hell of a time at Felipe's.

Step 1: Get to the rooftop.

Step 2: Order a marg.

Step 3: Order a burrito.

Step 4: Repeat step 2 multiple times.


3) Baseball Tavern

1270 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02215


Pro Tip 

This is a great place to be when the Sox are playing. It's a judgement free zone where the only goal is to have a great time while watching the Sox get a W. Well, unless you're a Yankees fan, then it's not so judgement free.

4) Daedalus

45.5 Mt Auburn St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Pro Tip

Cambridge grabbed two spots on this list and it makes a lot of sense. Although it isn't the largest rooftop, it has some really cool views of the town. Hit here if you want a little change up from Southie or the Back Bay.


5) Ristorante Fiore

250 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02113

Pro Tip: 

You are going to get the most out of this rooftop if you are looking for an authentic Italian meal before hitting the town. The Boston Native's rave about the Sangria here. If you want to impress your date, this is the spot. 


6) Pier 6

1 8th St, Charlestown, MA 02129

Pro Tip: 

Pier 6 is great for 2 things: Seafood and awesome views of the city. If you aren't feeling seafood, this is a quality place to grab a stiff drink with friends and family. The sunsets on the roof hits you right in the feels. 


7) Legal Harborside Rooftop

270 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210


A post shared by Fat Keed (@fatkeed) on


Pro Tip: 

Similar to Pier 6, Legal Harborside is perfect for seafood lovers or dates. It gets pretty pricey so we'd recommend you save this for a special occasion, the hail mary attempt to get the great white buffalo, or to grab a drink or two.


8) The roofdeck at Coppersmith

40 W 3rd St, South Boston, MA 02127


Pro Tip:

We aren't sure how they did it, but they managed to get a food truck on the rooftop. This is an awesome place to grab some food, crush some brews, and play a little Corn Hole. 


9) Cityside

1960 Beacon St, Brighton, MA 02135


A post shared by Cityside_Bar (@cityside_bar) on


Pro Tip:

Ok so this is more of a "patio" but it's elevated so we are going to call it a rooftop. This is a big bar for the college kids in our community, but that doesn't mean everyone can't have a great time. This is your classic sports bar to watch Boston sports or colleges like Boston College.
