This place can get crowded but its worth it. Love what seems like the original elevators and the service staff was friendly. Didnt get to spend much time on the rooftop as a big storm rolled in but we will check it out next time.

While it is not really a rooftop the Skybar gives scenic views of Asheville. Getting off the elevator on the 8th Floor the elevator operator gave us a drink menu. The price of the ride and view is a drink. Enjoying our wine and beer...More

Great spot to grab a drink and see the city and mountain view. Old-school elevator is very cool. Old historic building. Bar is mounted to the side of the building. Still and functioning office building by day. No Kids Allowed.

Took the old elevator with an attendant working the doors up to a little room about 6 floors up in downtown Asheville to see the sunset, which was very dramatic! You have a one drink minimum to stand out there with about 15 others, not...More

SkyBar: Asheville's Rooftop Bar and Skyline View. Discover Asheville: A Rare and Beautiful Place! rooftop bar Our skyline view Have you been to Asheville? Be sure that you make plans to visit us. Once here, you'll find yourself totally amazed at how wonderful this place is, with the mountains, beautiful downtown, and our unmistakable mountain vibe. Over the past few years, Asheville has become very well known for our culinary cool, our burgeoning beer scene and our thriving artistic community. On top of that, we have hundreds of miles of panoramic vistas, parkway drives, waterfalls waiting to be discovered, and an amazing downtown scene. Visit us and you'll see why all the locals think that Asheville is an unforgettable escape from the daily grind. During the summer, discover toe-tapping adventures along the new Blue Ridge Music Trail. Get yourself outside, explore our backyard, find outdoor adventures that will have you zipping across mountaintops or riding over river rapids. And, there's always the Blue Ridge Parkway! We all love to take leisurely drives along the Parkway to grab as much breathtaking beauty of mountains, vistas, waterfalls, rock-faces, and wonderful mountain air. Unique bar that was actually a fire escape of a very old building in Asheville. An elevator man takes you up to the 8th floor and you can choose to stay on the level or go down to 7th or 6th floors. A great view for a sunset. Busiest on Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
