Ride the elevator to the top of the One West Las Olas building in downtown Fort Lauderdale and you'll find a swanky outdoor patio, perfect for cocktailing. Though its seventh-floor location doesn't qualify for skyscraper status, you'll still have a bird's-eye view of the lights of Las Olas and the Middle River. If stunning views aren't your thing, just take in the boxwood trees as you relax on plush chairs or huddle around a fire pit on one of those cold South Florida nights when the temps plunge below 65 degrees. Sip cocktails ($14) like the "Zaddy" (rum, apple, thyme, and pineapple) or the "Violet Sky" (vodka, violet liqueuer, blackberry, and sage) and watch the sun set. The Rooftop takes reservations for parties of six or fewer, so you're guaranteed a seat even though the lounge has reduced its capacity. Open Thursday through Sunday.
