Whether enjoying sunset vistas or star-filled nights, Rooftop offers a stunning backdrop for enjoying world-class cuisine, hand-crafted cocktails, and carefully selected wines while soaking up unparalleled views of Mt. Diablo. Rooftop is an alluring lounge and outdoor terrace in the center of downtown Walnut Creek, featuring several dining areas surrounded by reclaimed brick, water features, and a lush living wall.
Food and drinks at Rooftop are as distinctive as the space itself. Chef/partner Justine Kelly delivers ingredient-driven, new American classic interpretations prepared using only the freshest ingredients- herbs often plucked from the living wall itself. With its retractable rooftop, fans, mister and extensive heating system – rain or shine, Rooftop truly is an all season destination.
Soon, they’ll be arriving like paratroopers. As for now, patrons line up to grab drinks at Rooftop Restaurant and Bar’s three-sided bar. The intention—of the city, the architect, and Rooftop’s partners—has always been to open a chef-driven restaurant. But when the sun sinks and the roof retracts, a thirsty public has other ideas. A rapprochement is in the offing, but it’s clear that fun dining—not fine dining—will be as formal as Rooftop ever gets.
And that’s a good thing.
