Stopped in for a drink. My beer was not as cold as it should have been but he service was good and it's a neat place for 2. Wish the view was a little better. This could be a romantic stop.

Part of our family's vacation was a pitstop to one of the top ten places to visit in Asheville. This summer activity was definitely an eye opener. We were fortunate to participate because a camp of 80+ 8 year old girls showed up and the line became very long. Bring $2 to park during operating hours. Bring your towel and... More

After a week of sightseeing and hiking, my husband and I stopped in at the Skybar in Downtown Asheville for happy hour. It opens at 3 and that' happened to be when we got there. You are taken to the top of the Flat Iron Bldg (as its called) in an old cage-type elevator with an elevator operator. We had... More

The entrance of the Sky Bar starts from the lobby of Ashville's historic Flatiron Bldg where you take a friendly escorted ride up an ornate elevator to the top floor to enjoy the wonderful view that awaits either on the three floor balconies or find your place in one of the inside lounges. The staff here is exceptionally friendly to... More

SkyBar is a 3-level structure--essentially a very extended fire escape--located on the side of The Flatiron Building; you enter the building's lobby on Battery Park Avenue—essentially next door to Chai Pani--and take an old-fashioned elevator (complete with a friendly attendant) up to what I believe is the sixth floor. From there you can walk down to the next two levels.... More

This is the best view of downtown Asheville and the staff was very friendly. The building itself is beautiful and the old elevator adds to the experience. This is a great place to unwind from a day of sightseeing.

We went up to the lounge after dinner and the view was awesome. First the ride up in an old school elevator was fun. Then we spent about 45 min on the outside at the bar. The view was beautiful. We did have to buy at least 1 drink but the drinks were good, too. A nice after dinner drink.... More

We saw this bar while walking on the street and decided we had to visit it. Wonderful ride in an old traditional elevator to the 5th or 6th floor. Walked out on the open air bar and enjoy a cool beverage and the fabulous view. It was a bright sunny day and we had a great time

Description
SkyBar: Asheville's Rooftop Bar and Skyline View. Discover Asheville: A Rare and Beautiful Place! rooftop bar Our skyline view Have you been to Asheville? Be sure that you make plans to visit us. Once here, you'll find yourself totally amazed at how wonderful this place is, with the mountains, beautiful downtown, and our unmistakable mountain vibe. Over the past few years, Asheville has become very well known for our culinary cool, our burgeoning beer scene and our thriving artistic community. On top of that, we have hundreds of miles of panoramic vistas, parkway drives, waterfalls waiting to be discovered, and an amazing downtown scene. Visit us and you'll see why all the locals think that Asheville is an unforgettable escape from the daily grind. During the summer, discover toe-tapping adventures along the new Blue Ridge Music Trail. Get yourself outside, explore our backyard, find outdoor adventures that will have you zipping across mountaintops or riding over river rapids. And, there's always the Blue Ridge Parkway! We all love to take leisurely drives along the Parkway to grab as much breathtaking beauty of mountains, vistas, waterfalls, rock-faces, and wonderful mountain air. Unique bar that was actually a fire escape of a very old building in Asheville. An elevator man takes you up to the 8th floor and you can choose to stay on the level or go down to 7th or 6th floors. A great view for a sunset. Busiest on Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
