Summer may be winding down, but the evening weather still allows for some outdoor nightlife. Enjoy Travel recently recognized the best rooftop bars in America, and a Philadelphia establishment made the list.
“The United States is brimming with brilliant rooftop bars,” Enjoy Travel exclaims. Furthermore, these spots typically provide a unique atmosphere experience unlike many other bars in the surrounding area.
Most patrons visit a rooftop bar mainly because of the view, as opposed to a particular menu item. In Enjoy Travel’s feature, each of the 25 roof bars they list are located within a major city. At sundown, these establishments enable you to fully appreciate your city’s skyline. From lookouts over waterfronts, to skyline lights, to beautiful panoramic views, the right rooftop bar makes you feel like you are in the middle of the city’s postcard.
In Philadelphia, the bar that was named overlooks the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Assembly Rooftop Lounge Ranked #3
Located on Benjamin Franklin Parkway (1840), Assembly Rooftop Lounge sits nine stories high. It is atop the Logan Hotel. “Our rooftop deck is truly the perfect place to unwind while savoring the finest of drinks and views in the Logan Square Neighborhood,” Assembly says.
This luxurious space has an outdoor lounge setup that overlooks the art and museum district. In addition, there are firepits along the edges. “You can enjoy sunset views all year round –even in the chilliest winters – thanks to its firepit pods and extendable rooftop,” Enjoy Travel says.
Assembly has a full menu of cocktails, beer, and wine. There is also a menu of small bites that includes flatbreads and oysters. Lastly, this Philadelphia hot spot that was named one of the best rooftop bars in America is available to reserve for private parties. You just need to be aware of their hours of operation. Assembly is open seven days per week, but does not open until 4 p.m. However, the bar does remain open until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
