Atari is a lovely resto-bar in the Byward Market area of Ottawa, that comes with an equally lovely rooftop patio, perfect for summer enjoyment. Only two floors up, but the terrace still offers nice views over the surrounding area and all the way over to the Peace Tower.
With the inside dining and bar on the first floor being quite colorful and paying tribute to the playful name (Atari), the second floor wooden decked terrace is more basic in interior, with mostly bar tables and umbrellas, but also a couple of covered lounge sofas.
However basic, the terrace is still the best spot to enjoy the Atari motto of “Play with food and drinks”. This means a nice food menu of different bites, like Crispy Wonton, Atari Burger, and also the option to build your own Tartars.
But even more so it means an impressive and playful cocktail menu, with creations like 'Zelda' from Level 1, an 'All Inclusive' from Level 2 and 'Atartini' from Level 3. Each level up means a few more dollars in price, but even Level 3 will not rip a hole in your wallet.
Visit Atari rooftop bar for fun and laid-back vibes, usually quite vibrant with a large crowd and on weekends also live DJs.Last updated: April 1, 2020
