High above the sprawl of Orange County, you’ll find several rooftop restaurants and bars, just waiting to entertain guests! Whether your purpose in town is to cheer on the Angels or explore the magic of Disneyland® Resort, here are several of our favorite rooftop spots that'll provide an amazing atmosphere.
The FIFTH Rooftop Restaurant & Bar
A local favorite for its 5,000 square feet of elbow room and Disneyland® Resort views, The FIFTH offers small shareable bites. We recommend the drunken donuts, complete with your choice of booze: Tequila lime, orange or coffee liqueur. Depending on when you go, you might get to take part in Tiki Tuesday, enjoy Wine Down Wednesday, try your hand at trivia, or laugh the night away during comedy nights.
Top of the V at The Viv Hotel, Anaheim, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel
A genuine Spanish Basque Country culinary adventure awaits up top of the new Viv Hotel, Anaheim, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel Anaheim. Top of the V is the vision of executive chef Edgar Beas, who honed his skills next to three-star Michelin Star Spanish chef Martin Berasategui. Pair the restaurant’s delicious Quesos (cheeses) or Pintxos (tapas-like bites) with a local craft beer or Spanish wine. If you’re looking for a drink as floral and refreshing as an Anaheim sunset, grab one of their signature Spanish-style gin and tonics.
Parkestry at JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort
With a breathtaking bird’s eye view of nearby Disneyland® Resort, Parkestry Rooftop Bar sits atop the JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort. Once you step into the elevator towards the top, you'll be swept away to a luxurious garden party atmosphere with comfy chairs gathered around warm fire pits—great for a romantic night out or a special occasion. Executive chef Amol Agarwal's menu will take your taste buds on a journey of delicious flavor and color combinations. We highly recommend the Asian chicken bakso made with freshly-picked coriander, ginger, vegetable slaw and a zesty plum sauce.
