Rooftop Bars in Wilmington, NC

The view from the top is always the best! Add a little excitement to your happy-hour cocktail or night out by taking in the views of downtown Wilmington from one of our rooftop bars. You may choose to go early and grab a drink while you catch the sunset over the Cape Fear River, or venture out a little later and experience the city’s nightlife. An open-air, rooftop bar is also a great way to enjoy the fantastic weather we have in Wilmington. Below are a couple of great rooftop bars found downtown.

Level 5

Nestled high in the heart of historic Wilmington, at the top of an old Masonic temple, is one of the best rooftop views in town. Level 5 is a rooftop bar with live music and a fantastic open-air view of downtown Wilmington.  If you are looking to party, this bar has more of a ‘nightclub’ scene at night; with daily drink/shot specials, a DJ, and a dance floor.

Level 5 is open 7 days a week at 5 p.m. and is located at 21 N. Front Street in downtown Wilmington.

The Reel Café

This is a bustling three story bar and restaurant in historic downtown Wilmington. There are plenty of options for a fun night out at this establishment. Enjoy dining at the restaurant, listen to live music in the out-door courtyard, play pool on the second floor, and of course, take in the views from the  rooftop bar overlooking the Cape Fear River. Reel Café offers lunch, dinner and a late-night menu. They also have daily drink specials and live music.
