California dominated the round-up. Two spots in Los Angeles, Perch and Spire 73, made the cut as well as Altitude in San Diego and El Techo in San Francisco.

A few restaurants in New York were also highlight, including Top of the Strand and Penthouse 808. And a couple of Washington, D.C., eateries, Columbia Room and POV Rooftop and Lounge, were also featured. 

One Atlanta spot received kudos, too: 9 Mile Station.

Located atop Ponce City Market, the bar was praised for its decor, nearby carnival games and “hard-to-find ales and lagers,” the team said.

“9 Mile possesses one of the most stunning views of Georgia capital’s skyline connecting downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead in one pan,” the writers continued. “9 Mile Station literally takes it to the next level.”
