We spent part of our evening here and enjoyed ourselves. We went right before sunset and was able to get a great table, though it was pretty full. Cocktails were okay. If I go back, we will probably just have a couple glasses of wine....More

We're not bar hoppers, but we do enjoy a sunset cocktail now and then, and this was definitely the place to do that! A little hard to locate (we walked past it twice!) the Sky Bar is nestled inside a vintage building with amazing architecture...More

We came for a hiking trip so weren't dressed up enough to go to the Omni. We thought the SkyBar would be a great place to check out, as it was close to our hotel and was more casual. You take an elevator to the...More

What a surprise - a casual cocktail lounge built on a 3 story fire escape. Wish they didn't allow smoking as I got some ashes from the rude men the level above in my drink (which was taken off my bill). Good cocktails and service...More

So much better than what we expected! Thought this was going to be a large, crowded commercial place. Nope. Enter into an office lobby and then you push the elevator button and wait for the elevator operator to come and get you. Has a speakeasy...More

The view of the mountains is okay, but what you really see are the ugly rooftops of the other buildings. Summer is too hot to be up there as there is no shade and you would be lucky to find anywhere to sit. Not worth...More

Sky Bar was recommended to us during our food tour, so following the tour we headed over to Sky Bar. It's located on top of the Flat Iron building, so the views are spectacular.

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.

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.
