Rooftop Dining Destinations in Georgia

It’s that time of year — the sun is shining, the days are long and al fresco dining is in full swing. Fortunately, Atlanta has no shortage of amazing rooftop patios — some of our favorites include Tuk Tuk Thai Food Loft, Rowdy Tiger Rooftop, Whiskey Blue at the W Atlanta-Buckhead, new-to-the-scene Shake Shack and, of course, the ever-popular Six Feet Under. But Atlanta's not the only city in Georgia with sky-high dining destinations. Take a look at these other spots upping the rooftop dining ante.
