Overview

The Roof Deck Bar at Grace Vanderbilt is one of the highlights of summer and Newport’s best kept secret. There are few places in the city where you can enjoy the stunning New England sunsets over the harbour whilst enjoying a glass of champagne or your favourite cocktail. Don’t miss some of the exciting roof top events during summer. Our Roof Deck is open Monday through Friday from 4pm to 10pm. Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 10pm.

The Grace Vanderbilt Hotel rooftop bar provides a scenic overview of Newport and its harbor. Snacks and drinks are available as well as blankets on chilly nights. This is a great place to watch the fireworks at Fort Adams on the 4th of July.

It's Newport so you know there is limited parking on the streets and expensive parking in the many lots. Walking in is a bit odd but interesting it is an old hotel with a mixed bag of period and strangely placed more contemporary pieces, and...More

We reserved spots to watch the Fort Adams fireworks display from the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace hotel. We sipped our complementary champagne as we watched the impressive fireworks display. As the evening cooled, the staff provided blankets to ensure everyone was comfortable.

Lovely old hotel, up a side street. Up to the roof, which at 5 storeys is reputedly the highest part of Newport. Lovely views over the harbour. Excellent drink menu, though as expensive as you'd expect. Definitely put in on your list of things to...More

We had an exceptional cocktail hour on the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace. The waitstaff was so welcoming and fun, even offered my brother a cigar menu. Views are the best in Newport. Thank you for creating such a memorable evening!

As non-guests of the hotel, my girlfriend and I very much enjoyed having a couple of drinks atop the Vanderbilt Grace rooftop. The view is unparalleled in Newport and the staff was extremely attentive. Would highly recommend a stop here for a drink around sunset.

Love coming here to get drinks and watch the sun set. The view over the harbor and the bridge is so pretty! Drinks and wine list are good and the service is quick. Wish they served food too!

Not sure since we haven't been there in April. I would guess it's weather dependent. I recommend calling the hotel.
