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.

The views were fantastic and the drinks unique and very tasty.
This definitely isn't a place to go if you want fast service but the servers were very friendly regardless. Lobby hostess and elevator operator were also very friendly and welcoming.

This is the strangest martini bar I've ever been to. You experience starts with the list operator. He elevates you to the 9th floor of the Flatiron building, and gives the protocol -- there are no bartenders at this bar; you just pick a spot and a server will take your order and make your drink. The view of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west is spectacular. Beware of the wind gusts and don't set your drink on one of the menus or it will surely blow away! What a fun spot.

Love the vibe in this coffee house. So wanted to try the pastries. Will definitely make a point of it next time. My cafe latte was made to perfection, thanks to the girl with the cool Scott Harris Glasses! :) I so wanted to stop by again on my way back to Charlotte.

Read the reviews so you're not expecting a traditional bar. Great drinks but not cheap. Great views of the area and Joe treated us fantastic. The service was fast and friendly.

We stopped in at midday to sit down and get view from up top of downtown Asheville. We enjoyed old time elevator, and the few old time pictures the had on walls. I would suggest the get many more of those to create better ambiance inside. Drinks were good but a little pricey. View was great, nice pit stop after long day of walking.
