The Best Rooftop and Patio Spots in Raleigh Durham.

The weather is warming up and if you're looking for a great patio or rooftop, here is a list to get you started. There are so many great options in RDU.

1. The Durham Hotel - This spot in Durham is worth the mention for its iconic rooftop bar offering sweeping views of downtown Durham, sophisticated cocktails, and a laid-back atmosphere. Of course, this is where I'm from and I have to show Durham some love. It really has become a foodie city.

2. Taverna Agora - Authentic Greek cuisine on their beautiful rooftop garden. It's a serene setting that feels like a Mediterranean escape in the heart of the city. And sometimes they have music which is incredible and even belly dancing, Opa!

3. 10th & Terrace - Located atop the Residence Inn Raleigh Downtown, 10th & Terrace offers panoramic views of Raleigh's skyline along with a variety of craft cocktails and small plates. Great for a fun group...the girls and I did a birthday celebration here.

4. The Willard Rooftop Lounge - Raleigh's rooftop scene boasts stunning views of downtown Raleigh, an extensive wine list, and a variety of shareable plates. I celebrated a birthday here and the food was incredible. Great spot to watch the sunset.
