Though we didn't spend a ton of time up here, every second was delightful. My dad was a riverboat man, so sipping my favorite drink while watching the barges roll past, felt, divine. Also, the fire knocked the chill off nicely!

This is the perfect spot for sunset! The view is amazing and the drinks are excellent too. It is a bit pricey, but so worth it for the view.

Great spot to view spectacular sunsets, the DeSoto bridge as day meets dusk and a really comfy / intimate rooftop design, not to mention great service ... thanks Paul!

The Sky Terrace is open year round but has food and beverage service during the on season. It is very comfortable and eclectic, and has the most beautiful views of the Mississippi River and the Memphis skyline.

Go early. After a certain time there is a $10 fee to gain admittance. We arrived around 5:45PM and stayed until around 7PM. The terrace was comfortable if a little warm (sun is directly in you eyes but that is why you are there). Service is attentive and the venue is neither too loud or too crowded. This is a... More

Just enjoyed cocktails at sunset on the roof of the Madison Hotel overlooking the mighty Mississippi. A must place to visit while in Memphis. Great service, fine wines and an eclectic group of guests. The hotel is also worth a stay!

This is a great place to enjoy the late afternoon and after-dinner views of the Mississippi. There is a bar, plus comfortable couches, tables and chairs.

No Chris? No Q? We stopped in to have cocktails with my favorite bartenders, and was told that Q was off and Chris was working somewhere else. Well the change is not for the better. Our cocktails lacked the depth and polish we were accustomed to last year. I will stop back in to see Q in a couple of... More

We stopped twice at the Twilight Sky Terrace on our stay at the Madison Hotel. One afternoon we enjoyed the scenic view as the sun was beginning to set over the Mississippi. Another visit, we relaxed with drinks and panoramic night views of the bridges and city at night.

Twilight Sky Terrace was created to offer Memphians, and guests alike, an entertainment venue alternative that captures a contemporary, urban vibe, and highlights the innate beauty of the city.The combination of "Twilight," the time between daylight and darkness when the sun sets just below the horizon, and "Sky Terrace," is a fitting description of our Memphis rooftop bar, and was inspired by the astounding view seen at twilight from the rooftop.Some of the unique design features of Twilight Sky Terrace include custom sun shades to alleviate the seasonal heat, custom modern furnishings, dancing fire pit, communal table, 70" TV screen, High Spy Binoculars for star gazing, custom crafted cocktail, and a delectable menu of small bites.Whichever part of the day you visit. We hope you enjoy your experience at Twilight Sky Terrace.
