Set in the Midwestern region of the United States and bordered by eight states, Missouri can really be called a state in the heart of the country. And somewhat a hidden gem, with plenty to explore, all the way up to the rooftops.

With mostly cool, and sometimes cold, winters, it is during spring and the hot and humid summers that the alfresco rooftop season is at its peak in Missouri. During this time, there are plenty of elevated venues to enjoy food and drinks in the 'Show Me State'.

From skyline views in Kansas City to Mississippi River vistas in St. Louis, this listing will take you to every Missouri rooftop bar worth a visit.
