These 6 Rooftop Bars Have Sensational Views Of Buffalo
You may not have thought about hanging out on one of our city’s rooftops in quite some time, considering the fact that winter has left Buffalo coated in snow and shivering cold for the last few months. We don’t blame you! Now that the temperatures are beginning to rise and we’re getting ready for the warmer seasons, there’s never been a better time to plan out which elevated views to take advantage of this year. Bringing you up above it all, check out this list of incredible rooftop bars within the Queen City.
1. Tappo Restaurant - 338 Ellicott St., Buffalo, NY 14203
This last winter, we talked about the cool igloos situated on top of Tappo Restaurant on Ellicott Street. Well, now that things are warming up, prepare to enjoy the beautiful views from the rooftop patio! From shaded tables to the city views, this may be our favorite rooftop spot in the Queen City.
