Best New Rooftop Bar Above the Old Rooftop Bar: Vue 19

Best New Rooftop Bar Above the Old Rooftop Bar

When Push opened, it revolutionized St. Pete’s nightlife, offering a real dance floor and a rooftop bar — albeit a rooftop that only looked down on Publix. This year Vue 19 raised the bar, at least in terms of sheer height. Perched on the 19th floor of the Bank of America Tower, the lounge offers a balcony with the most dramatic drinking view in all of St. Pete, if not the Bay. Vue 19. 200 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, 727-821-4600, Vue19.com/lounge.
