We reserved spots to watch the Fort Adams fireworks display from the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace hotel. We sipped our complementary champagne as we watched the impressive fireworks display. As the evening cooled, the staff provided blankets to ensure everyone was comfortable.

We had an exceptional cocktail hour on the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace. The waitstaff was so welcoming and fun, even offered my brother a cigar menu. Views are the best in Newport. Thank you for creating such a memorable evening!

As non-guests of the hotel, my girlfriend and I very much enjoyed having a couple of drinks atop the Vanderbilt Grace rooftop. The view is unparalleled in Newport and the staff was extremely attentive. Would highly recommend a stop here for a drink around sunset.

Love coming here to get drinks and watch the sun set. The view over the harbor and the bridge is so pretty! Drinks and wine list are good and the service is quick. Wish they served food too!

The Rooftop at Vanderbilt Grace is the most beautiful bar in Newport. The drinks are overpriced but delicious. The Grace cocktail tastes like a sweet pear so definitely order one!

The roof deck bar on the Vanderbilt Grace Hotel offers one of the best harbor views in Newport. If you can, come in the evening and watch the sun set over the water while you enjoy a libation from the well stocked bar.

This is a must do in Newport. Hit the Vanderbilt 1 hour before sunset, take the lift to the rooftop bar, get in the scrum to order a drink at the bar and if you are lucky, when that hour is up, you will turn...More

Not sure since we haven't been there in April. I would guess it's weather dependent. I recommend calling the hotel.
