Updated: Jun 22, 2023

Whether visiting Newport, RI for a weekend getaway, staying for vacation or living here full time, we all seek out the best spots to watch sunset. And there's no better way to take in the magic of sunset than with a glass in your hand -- or a camera ; ) Here is my list of best roof decks & bars to watch sunset in Newport, RI:


1) The Vanderbilt Roof Deck: Soak in the glorious view of Newport Harbor from The Vanderbilt Hotel's Roof Deck. Enjoy light bites, handcrafted cocktails and the breathtaking view. (Open 4–10 PM; 41 Mary Street, Newport, RI)

2) The Pinneapple Club at Newport Harbor Island Hotel: The Pineapple Club offers an amazing panoramic view of Narragansett Bay including Newport's iconic Pell Bridge. Enjoy cocktails and/or poolside food items as you watch the sun get swallowed up by Newport Harbor. My favorite is to snag a couple of Adirondack chairs along the grassy knoll and sit back with a loved one, enjoying the changing colors of sunset. (11 AM - 9 PM; 1 Goat Island, Newport, RI)


3) Castle Hill Lawn & Terrace Bar: Savor breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay as well as delicious delights from Castle Hill's kitchen and outside bar overlooking the locale's rolling lawn. Just like their site says, definitely visit Castle Hill to "take a seat on the sea"! (The Lawn is currently open every Thurs-Mon 12-6 PM and 12-8 PM on Ties/Wed; 590 Ocean Drive, Newport, RI)

4) Forty 1° North: The Pavilion Bar: Forty 1° North's outside bar, The Pavilion, offers a modern, coastal vibe right on Newport Harbor. Enjoy cocktails and yummy dishes from their restaurant while admiring yachts - and superyachts - docked in the adjoining marina. (4-10 PM; 351 Thames Street, Newport, RI)
