Fourth place went to 9 Mile Station is on the roof of Ponce City Market. From there, “9 Mile Station offers a much more satisfying view of all three of Atlanta’s phenomenal skylines mixed with the foilage of the city’s green canopy along the Beltline, Piedmont Park, and all 4 local neighborhoods that merge at Ponce City Market,” it’s website states. The bar opens at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Third place went to another Ponce City Market rooftop area. Skyline Park has great views you can enjoy from a table or on one of the park’s rides. In addition to rides, Skyline’s “Coney Island style boardwalk includes mini golf, horse derby race, basketball, skee ball, and break-a-plate,” it’s website states. Skyline is open seven days a week, with masks required to enjoy the fun.
In second place was Hotel Clermont. The rooftop offers the “finest of the finer things: astroturf, street food, frosé in the summer, hot toddies in the fall. The romance of being on a roof, anywhere, but especially here, with its skyline views for days,” its website states. The rooftop is open 5:30 p.m. to midnight Wednesday through Friday; noon to midnight Saturday; and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.
The 2020 winner of best rooftop bar in metro Atlanta shines. Even its name means star.
