3 Reasons Why Rooftop 120 is a Must Visit

27 May

Happy Friday! I figured today would be an excellent time to tell you guys why I think Rooftop 120 in Glastonbury is a must visit, especially since we are on the cusp of a long weekend and the weather is supposed to be pretty nice. I attended a blogger event here a while ago and I’m excited to tell you guys all about it! I have definitely mentioned Rooftop 120 in the past and I actually attended their very first blogger event but I can’t help but continue to gush about how great this place is.

  • The cocktails are out of this world (especially when Tyler is making them!).

We had the pleasure of enjoying several different cocktails which appear on their menu. Tyler, their bar manager, is always coming up with new and creative drink ideas and it’s so fun to see (and sample) his creations! My personal favorite is the 120 Watermelon, which is made with Tito’s vodka, lemonade, watermelon puree, and fresh watermelon. It is so refreshing and would be perfect to enjoy on a hot, sunny day like today.

  • The views are absolutely incredible.

I love going to Rooftop because it honestly doesn’t feel like you are in the center of Glastonbury. Being up there removes you from the busy hustle and bustle of town and makes you relax and really take in the atmosphere. There are many Friday evenings where we just head up there for a quick drink before dinner to just decompress from a long week.

  • Last but definitely not least, the food is always superb and SO flavorful.

At the blogger event, we were able to try many different dishes which really shows the depth of talent that Chef Xavier Santiago has, since they all presented such different styles and flavors. My favorite was the Smoked Salmon Rillete which had the perfect balance between the smokiness of the salmon and the creaminess of the sour cream with some tang from the blood orange vinaigrette thrown in for good measure.

Just based on speaking with the owner and learning more about what they have to offer, it is clear that they put a lot of time and effort into making sure that the entire experience is phenomenal, from the food to the drinks and even the space itself. I highly recommend making a visit to the Rooftop this summer and seeing what they have to offer!
