Sugar

Swanky - meets boho - meets oriental-  carved wooden masterpiece dropped in the middle of a tropical garden oasis. How do they get so many trees up to the 40th floor? Who knows, but we are all here for it. Located on the rooftop of the East Hotel, Sugar offers beautiful views of the Downtown Miami Skyline with the backdrop of international chill deep house music. They've a variety of Asian-inspired cocktails and small bites around  $15 a pop, but definitely worth the splurge. 
Warning: Proper dress code is strictly enforced! No sandals or tank tops permitted at any time & no shorts permitted after 6pm.

Watr

There is a 100% chance we have found paradise. Watr at the 1 Hotel is absolutely breathtaking from day to night, not to mention the mesmerizing sunset. This oceanfront rooftop is super chill, modern, and serves amazing cocktails, eclectic snacks and the freshest sushi. The Frozé is bomb. 
Whether you come through at daytime to sip on some mojitos by the pool or wait till night to get dolled up and mingle with strangers, Watr serves an unforgettable experience between the music, decor, accents and service.

Area 31

You can find Area 31 inside the EPIC Hotel so don't expect anything less than pretty EPIC city and river views; a view that makes you think what have I done to deserve this.. Area 31 is a chic upscale rooftop bar with 2 pools, a top notch craft cocktail bar, and a live DJ in Brickell. Our favorite time to go is happy hour of course every Monday through Thursday from 5-7pm. Treat yourself with $8 house cocktails, wine, beer and $8 bar bites. The parmesan truffle french fries are to die for.

DECK Sixteen

The very underrated DECK Sixteen located on the 3rd floor deck inside the Hyatt on Collins Ave is a must when looking to hang out on a rooftop lounge in South Beach. Any time is a good time to go to DECK  but Sunday Brunch and happy hour is our favorite. Guests and visitors alike can enjoy food, cocktails and bottle service. Daily happy hour is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., featuring $6 cocktails and mouthwatering bites like Mahi tacos and Crispy Octopua Salad. The food is art.

As one of Wynwood's only rooftop bars, I can say that No 3. Social does a great job. Though not your typical rooftop bar with the extensive 360 view of the Miami skyline, like the others mentioned in our list, No.3 Social does not fall far behind with its ultra chic and airy atmosphere. Once you make your way up the giant staircase and onto the rooftop you can choose to relax on the comfy couches, stand by the bar or lean on the terrace balcony if you prefer to stay away from the crowd. The decor inside No.3 Social is beautiful and for a moment you may feel like you've left Miami.
