With winter thawing into warmer temperatures, now is the perfect time to dine high in the sky at UP on the Roof in Greenville, SC. Located atop the Embassy Suites hotel downtown, our rooftop restaurant offers a variety of modern American eats best enjoyed while taking in sweeping vistas of the Upstate.
Seasonal, Sophisticated Southern Comfort
At UP on the Roof, we give Southern comfort food a sophisticated twist, and we adjust our menu each season to make use of the best locally sourced ingredients. We’ve integrated spring fruits and vegetables like asparagus, avocados, carrots, fennel, leeks, and more into our current menu in a plethora of innovative ways. Here are a few of our favorites:
Ahi Tuna Tartare: Tasty bites of raw tuna served with wakame, blue crab, avocado, cucumber, and masago.
From the Farm
Rooftop Risotto: Creamy rice mixed with seasonal vegetables and topped with shaved parmesan.
From the Ranch
Roasted Springer Mountain Chicken: Raised on a farm just an hour away and served with curry-coconut sweet potatoes, grilled asparagus, and beurre blanc.
From the Sea
Lowcountry Crab Cake: Our take on a Chesapeake Bay classic, served with creamy mascarpone polenta, remoulade, and fennel slaw.
Cocktails for Celebrating Spring
Our cocktails also reflect the changing of the seasons, made with juices freshly squeezed from warm weather produce. Try our handcrafted bottled drinks such as It’s Strawberry Thyme—made with Beefeater Gin Cointreau, strawberries, fresh thyme, and a hint of lemon sour—or the Reedy Peach, a cocktail of Deep Eddy Peach Vodka, lime juice, cucumber water, Jack Rudy tonic syrup, mint simple syrup, and lavender bitters.
For a true celebration of the rooftop season, order one of our favorite elevated classics, Up in the Air. This refreshing Reyka Vodka-based cocktail is made with St. Germain, blackberry simple syrup, lemon juice, and mint.
And if you come visit UP on the Roof during brunch hours—Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.—you and your friends can toast to springtime with $25 bottomless mimosas!
Other Reasons to Gather at UP on the Roof This Season
Start the spring season off right by attending one of our weekly theme nights:
Join us for Six and the City Sundays to enjoy one of America’s most iconic TV shows, Sex and the City. Every Sunday from 6 p.m. to midnight, we’ll be serving Carrie’s signature Cosmopolitans for $6 each and streaming your favorite episodes.
If the tropics are more your scene than the urban jungle of NYC, come to UP on the Roof for Tiki Tuesdays. With Rumhaven drink specials, bar bites, and various giveaways and entertainment planned for each week, our rooftop is sure to become your favorite midweek oasis.
