Peabody Hotel Rooftop 

The Peabody Hotel’s rooftop parties are legendary, but while we await their return, you can enjoy sunset drinks at Memphis’s classiest hotel. The Peabody Rooftop is on the top floor of the hotel, and you’re in the heart of downtown with great views of the city skyline and sunset.

Sunset Social Hours are on for Friday and Saturday night at the Peabody. Head up through the Lobby elevators to the roof; they’ll have drinks and snacks available, and you might even see the ducks do their march back to their own rooftop palace at 5 p.m.

More Rooftop Ideas

Beale Street Landing at Tom Lee Park is a literal grassy knoll that’s technically the roof of the building, and it’s got a great view of the river and sunset. You’ll have to bring your own picnic, though. 

Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid offers a $10 elevator ride to the top of the 28-story pyramid with observation decks. While it’s not where I would hang out for drinks, it’s worth the price at least once to take in the city from the tippy top. 

Old Dominick Distillery makes their own whiskey, vodka, bourbon, and gin right here in the heart of downtown Memphis. They offer tours and their downstairs bar has reopened with limited hours. They do have a rooftop bar and patio, but it’s only open for private events and occasionally as staffing permits. Follow them on social media for updates, and read more about Old Dominick in this blog post about their tours.
