It couldn’t be called Uptown without a cool and classy rooftop bar. The Southern Kitchen and Bar has quite the impressive set up with their comfy seating and glass enclosed bar. It also doesn’t hurt that their view is to die for. The Southern is also known to be quite the brunching spot especially if you are craving good ole southern comfort food. Expect some classic Southern and Southern-inspired cocktails on this rooftop’s menu. Cocktail prices range from $8 – $10 so you won’t break the bank while enjoying some of their southern style drinks. The Mint Julep comes highly recommended at this establishment.
