A draw for the over-30 after-work crowd, the Rattlesnake Bar offers a menu that’s a bit more sophisticated. The roof deck is surrounded by skyscrapers, so don’t expect to much of a view. Rattlesnake’s roof deck has a feel that’s trendy, but not overdone.

You’ll feel like you stumbled onto a secret terrace somewhere along the winding Almalfi Coast of southern Italy. Tucked in the heart of the North End, the walls that surround Ristorante Fiore’s roof deck block out the city and offer a sense of escape. Fiore is a perfect summer setting for a superb Italian dinner.

Casual elegance might be the best way to describe the experience at Market. Their well-made (read: expensive) cocktails tend to draw a sophisticated and older crowd.

The pool is open to the public from 8 am to 8 pm on weekdays. If you aren’t a guest of the hotel, it will cost you $40 to get up there for the day (1/2 price after 3 pm). Described as “the most luxurious of the city’s roof decks,” the roof of the Colonnade is a fine place to kick back and relax more than 100 feet above the hustle and bustle of the city. The poolside-dining menu offers a bevy of frozen drinks to keep you cool in the hot summer sun.
