Boston Roofdeck Roundup
The cool fall breezes are starting to creep into the morning air. School supplies and book bags are on clearance everywhere you look. Those great weekend trips to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are behind you. Summer is winding down (we’re sad too!), which is a great excuse to check out all the fantastic roof decks the city has to offer. Located in almost every neighborhood of Boston, these spots are the sure answer to your craving for outdoor good times before summer says goodbye and autumn bursts in, with its full color palette, and new seasonal things to do!
Find yourself right in the Back Bay? Head on over to….
This Boylston Street deck has been described as an “urban canyon” because of its unique perch between high-rise buildings. The summer hot spot opened in 1990, and today, party people can order food from Poe’s Kitchen until 1 a.m. every night.
Want to catch the energy of Fenway, without the sticker shock of ticket prices? Why not try….
Located just behind Fenway’s right field is Jerry Remy’s new roof deck. Listen to the sounds of the stadium while you watch the game on one of the many flat screen TVs. Enjoy their special roof deck menu that has an emphasis on gourmet burgers.
Catching a concert at the Bank of America Pavillion? Consider wandering towards….
This waterfront Irish pub boasts more than 100 types of whiskey and an extensive beer selection. Like its sister restaurant, Atlantic Beer Garden, Whiskey Priest takes whiskey or beer suggestions. Enjoy live music here, from traditional Irish pub sessions to live bands and DJs.
Eat one too many cannoli on Hanover Street in the North End? Waddle on in to….
This roof deck is designed to feel like “a little cafe in Italy,” according to director of operations Sarah Wiggin. The space has evolved since Fioré opened in 2001 — recent additions include TVs and a growing list of homemade vodka infusions. It’s a popular spot, so prepare to see and be seen.
