The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Uncover the New South in Old Savannah


4. Insider’s Tip

The outdoor terrace at Rocks on the Roof offers panoramic views of the Savannah River and the historic district.  

The city’s climate and low-lying skyline would seem to invite rooftop bars, but Savannah has only a few. Unless you’re staying at the Bohemian Hotel, at the western end of the waterfront, you may never stumble upon Rocks on the Roof, safely ensconced eight floors up from the touristy foot traffic. Grab an outdoor table at day’s end and toast the sunset as South Carolina lights up across the river. When you're ready to leave, feel free to order a drink or two for the road—to-go cups are legal here.
