The Canopy: Downtown St. Pete’s Rooftop Bar

Rooftop Collective visits The Canopy Rooftop Bar in St. Pete

Sitting down to write this post almost seems ridiculous because I truly do feel EVERYONE knows about The Canopy, the Downtown St. Petersburg rooftop bar that has attracted locals, out of towners, bachelorettes, and birthday parties for years.

However, in the off chance you have not already visited The Canopy, I will gladly introduce you to this rooftop bar that has been attracting locals, out of towners, bachelorettes, and birthday parties for years. 😉

The Canopy is perched atop the Birchwood Hotel right on Beach drive offering stunning views of North Straub Park and Tampa Bay and is Downtown St. Pete’s only rooftop bar (apart from the pier).

Offering a pretty substantial food menu (think flatbreads, chicken dishes, and burgers) and craft cocktails, Canopy is an upbeat spot offering firepits, cabana rentals, music, and of course, VIEWS FOR DAYS. Opening at 11 AM on the weekends, visitors can watch the bar slowly transform from a daytime lunch spot to a busy nightlife destination when the sun goes down.

Check out their menu here.

Because it’s located right on Beach Drive, many people waiting for a table at a busy restaurant in the area will saunter up to Canopy to get a drink before their reservation. In addition to hungry restaurant-goers, you will often find celebratory crowds like bachelorettes, birthdays, wedding parties, and more. I’m not going to lie, it gets pretty crowded at times..however, they do offer a good amount of seating between their bar, hightops, canopies, and couches.

Whether you’re looking for somewhere to bring out-of-town guests, or a fun spot to kick off your next girl’s night out, The Canopy is an easy winner.

Check their social media for various events and specials throughout the week!
