Let the impending crisp, fall weather be your cue to literally elevate your dining and imbibing. With the hot summer finally subsiding, we’re approaching serious al fresco weather, and there’s no better place to cozy up to a great view with an adult beverage like the myriad of rooftop bar situations available in Alpharetta. Here are a few of our faves:
Known for perfect pairings of savory and sweet via their charcuterie boards and an ever-evolving list of international beers on draught, Barleygarden offers an open-air rooftop bar overlooking bustling Avalon boutiques and restaurants. Cured meats, cheeses, cold beers, and the prime position for people watching? They really ought to call it “al-yes-co” dining.
Topgolf is the ultimate in outdoor action because it fuses the laidback-have-a-beer bowling culture we all love with the competitive slant of the driving range. In addition to air-conditioned bays and excellent bar snacks (ahem, ridiculously addictive queso dip), you’ll find a high-energy, open-air bar with plenty of live music and easy, breezy vibes. After all, the secret to solid swing at Topgolf might just lie within a premium cocktail (or two).
Food truck culture is rolling in Alpharetta—and at Truck & Tap, you’ll experience the best the city has to offer in mobile cuisine with the added benefit of a HUGE list of rotating tap beers. From Che Butter Jonez burgers to Kajun Asian’s fried sushi corndogs (yes, you read that right!), every night at Truck & Tap signifies a culinary journey. This must-visit gets major bonus points for cool beer pairing options designed to go along with the food truck of the night, and their rooftop patio serves as the perfect nook for autumn stargazing to go along with all those epic eats.
Farm-fresh ingredients and a creative culinary approach are the hallmarks of South Main Kitchen, but the rooftop patio allows Downtown Alpharetta to really bring out the Southern charm. This upstairs shaded mini oasis brings a special ambiance to the already stellar menu of locally sourced components of favorites like the Kale and Brussel Sprouts Salad, Mushroom Cavatelli, and the W. Allgood Burger. Take it outside and be sure to order the booze-forward SMK Manhattan for the perfect means to usher in autumn.
