This Rooftop Restaurant Includes a Picturesque View of Salem, Massachusetts
Despite a controversial view that the Halloween mystique of Salem, Massachusetts, may in fact be overrated, make no mistake -- the city of Salem overall is simply amazing and offers a lot of beauty, no matter the season.
And that includes one of the most picturesque, gorgeous views to take in while dining on delicious food and tasting incredible cocktails on top of the city.
The Hotel Salem
One of the highlights of Essex Street in Salem, Massachusetts, aside from the fact that it's considered the central artery for all things haunted, is The Hotel Salem.
Not only is The Hotel Salem absolutely beautiful inside with fantastic accommodations, but for tourists who want to take in that Halloween mystique of Salem, staying there literally puts them right in the center of Essex Street.
And while that's reason enough to check out The Hotel Salem, they have one more feature that literally puts you on top of the entire city.
The Roof at The Hotel Salem
One of the greatest features of The Roof at The Hotel Salem is the fact that it's open to the public, not just guests of the hotel itself.
Protected by glass barriers around the perimeter of the rooftop, The Roof features seating around that same perimeter that you would expect to find at an overpriced, boujee rooftop deck in Los Angeles -- comfortable, cushioned seating with fashionable coffee tables -- without breaking the bank and reeking of snobbery.
Inside the perimeter? A fully functional bar with plenty of seating, low-top tables that can seat anywhere from two to four guests, as well as a set of high-top tables that can be merged together to incorporate larger parties of guests.
And the best part?
No matter where you're seated, there's always some sort of beautiful view to get lost in while you dine and drink.
While the Halloween mystique of Salem may not be for everyone -- The Roof makes any trip to the city more than worth it.
