The Best Rooftop Restaurants in Miami

A Story By

One of the best things about Miami (besides the beaches) is the rooftops! Why sit inside a stuffy booth when you can sip cocktails atop a 40th-floor restaurant overlooking the Miami skyline? From brunch to happy hour, to a late-night dinner, we might be home to the most rooftop bars in one city!

We’ve gathered some of our faves, all with different menus, aesthetics, music, etc, so you can find your perfect go-to rooftop restaurant in Miami.

MILA rooftop is arguably one of the most elaborate rooftop restaurants in Miami. From the décor to the music, to the food and drinks, MILA has made it a priority to deliver a unique experience from start to finish.

When you enter the rooftop you will immediately feel as though you’ve left Miami to visit a tropical island. The aesthetic rivals an elaborate resort in Fiji or Mykonos with the view of Miami to remind you that you never left. 

Aside from the delicious menu curated with a fusion of Asian and Mediterranean influences, the entertainment is what sets MILA apart. On certain nights, experience live shows that vary every night, providing a full sensory experience.

Dolores rooftop is found in the heart of Brickell and we absolutely love it here! The rooftop view is gorgeous and the food is amazing. The restaurant was once home to a Miami fire station, and based on the classic design, you can tell. While the design is classic, it is nowhere near simple. It offers a historic feel while being surrounded by modern-looking skyscrapers, and this is just one of the reasons we love it.

During the day you can choose to sit inside or on the outside rooftop patio, and as the sun goes down you’ll notice a distinct difference in the overall feel of the restaurant. Enjoy music and VIP areas as the sun goes down.
