When the locals are asked about rooftop bars in Downtown St. Pete, they’ll likely mention The Canopy.  This spot is not only known for their great reputation of creating fun nights out, but also for their events!  Their July 4 and New Year’s Eve Bash tickets always sell out, so keep an eye out on their events calendar.  

The space at The Canopy is luxurious but approachable.  You’ll find crisp, white cabana areas and also comfy couches–great for group parties.  This is a great spot to watch the sunset, especially for their beautiful view of the bay.  While enjoying the view, you can enjoy some of their signature cocktails and menu of small plates–perfect for sharing.

The Landing is located in the popular events and concert space, Jannus Live.  Their elevated rooftop bar is a chill hangout spot–private and well decorated.  We love the ivy walls and trees that surround the space, giving it a private and hidden feel. The twinkly lights draped across the space finish it off to create a warm vibe for you and your friends. They also have games like jumbo Jenga and more!

The Landing’s menu is beautifully simple for a quick bite after seeing a show–with casual appetizers and wings.  Their drinks are simple but perfected.  We recommend their amazing Bloody Mary!

Pier Teaki is a newer rooftop bar at the St. Pete Pier.  Relax in their modern tiki bar inspired space, we love their ocean blue colored decor mixed with their palm leaf cabanas.  The vibe of the space and the amazing view of the water makes Pier Teaki a hit with locals and tourists alike.  

The Pier Teaki menu is full of yummy items–small plates to share and also dinner plates, so you can visit for a dinner party!  We love their Baked Mac & Cheese appetizer and the Popcorn Coconut shrimp, which is served in a cute popcorn bucket!

DeSanto is a rooftop bar in St. Pete, raising the level of expectations for all bars in Tampa Bay. The space is gorgeous, perfect for a picture for social media. Their beautiful space uses crisp wood accents, gorgeous Spanish tile, and even couch seating for groups.  We love that they have ceiling fans to keep you cool in the summer as well. We recommend this as one of your stops for a birthday night out!  You can bring large groups of people, mingle, and share their amazing seafood small plates.

Their fresh tapas are perfect for their creative cocktails. We love their mini Avocado Tostadas–with crab and shrimp. They also have great bowls with amazingly fresh raw seafood! Don’t miss out on their signature margaritas as well!
