Had drinks and appetizer at the roof top bar. Great views and nice atmosphere on a sunny afternoon. Try the lobster guacamole different spin on a classic. Although specialty drinks can be pricey can’t beat the views.More

The Grace Vanderbilt Hotel rooftop bar provides a scenic overview of Newport and its harbor. Snacks and drinks are available as well as blankets on chilly nights. This is a great place to watch the fireworks at Fort Adams on the 4th of July.

We reserved spots to watch the Fort Adams fireworks display from the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace hotel. We sipped our complementary champagne as we watched the impressive fireworks display. As the evening cooled, the staff provided blankets to ensure everyone was comfortable.

Lovely old hotel, up a side street. Up to the roof, which at 5 storeys is reputedly the highest part of Newport. Lovely views over the harbour. Excellent drink menu, though as expensive as you'd expect. Definitely put in on your list of things to...More

We had an exceptional cocktail hour on the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace. The waitstaff was so welcoming and fun, even offered my brother a cigar menu. Views are the best in Newport. Thank you for creating such a memorable evening!

As non-guests of the hotel, my girlfriend and I very much enjoyed having a couple of drinks atop the Vanderbilt Grace rooftop. The view is unparalleled in Newport and the staff was extremely attentive. Would highly recommend a stop here for a drink around sunset.

Not sure since we haven't been there in April. I would guess it's weather dependent. I recommend calling the hotel.
