Are you looking for the best rooftop bars with stunning view in Saint Petersburg, Russia? You’re in the right place. Saint Petersburg is a well-known old city with a rich cultural heritage. Find out the top 7 rooftop bars overlooking the landmarks and monuments of the city. Also, check out the opening hours, dress code, location, menu etc.

Makaronniki

There are several reasons why Makaronniki appears the first on our list. Firstly, it is situated on the top floor of a business center and looks out over the city. Secondly, it’s possible to visit this bar-restaurant all year round. In winter, you can enjoy your evenings in its internal part. In warm weather, a stunning view is awaiting directly from their gigantic terrace. However, you’ll probably be a bit frustrated about the lack of Russian national dishes. Besides having a wide range of alcoholic drinks, they also serve Italian food. I personally recommend you tasting their grilled salmon and spinach. Then, you can go for a coconut filled dessert. For more information, you can visit directly the menu page of the bar.

Artist’s Attic Fondue bar

The first thing that grabbed my attention in Artist’s Attic Fondue bar was its exceptional location. In fact, it is situated on the top floor of an art gallery and provides a magical sunset view. Take your time to observe the artworks while going to the restaurant. You’ll find here crafts, mosaic, ceramic, art glass, author dolls etc. Besides the tasty food, I also loved the interior design of this restaurant. But don’t wait to have a hundred percent open-air terrace. Instead, you’ll find a covered terrace which overlooks Griboyedov Canal and Bank Bridges.

Note, that the number of tables is limited. So, you should book it in advance. The name itself tells you that the restaurant is specialized in Swiss fondue. But, you can obviously find dishes from international cuisine. Check out the main dishes and the wine list of the bar.
