We reserved spots to watch the Fort Adams fireworks display from the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace hotel. We sipped our complementary champagne as we watched the impressive fireworks display. As the evening cooled, the staff provided blankets to ensure everyone was comfortable.

Lovely old hotel, up a side street. Up to the roof, which at 5 storeys is reputedly the highest part of Newport. Lovely views over the harbour. Excellent drink menu, though as expensive as you'd expect. Definitely put in on your list of things to do.

We had an exceptional cocktail hour on the rooftop of the Vanderbilt Grace. The waitstaff was so welcoming and fun, even offered my brother a cigar menu. Views are the best in Newport. Thank you for creating such a memorable evening!

As non-guests of the hotel, my girlfriend and I very much enjoyed having a couple of drinks atop the Vanderbilt Grace rooftop. The view is unparalleled in Newport and the staff was extremely attentive. Would highly recommend a stop here for a drink around sunset.

Love coming here to get drinks and watch the sun set. The view over the harbor and the bridge is so pretty! Drinks and wine list are good and the service is quick. Wish they served food too!

My girlfriends and I went for drinks on New Years eve and stayed until after midnight. Drinks were great, but the band they had playing was amazing. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. I hope they have the same group this year. Going to get a bunch of people to also have dinner here. Can't wait to go... More

The Rooftop at Vanderbilt Grace is the most beautiful bar in Newport. The drinks are overpriced but delicious. The Grace cocktail tastes like a sweet pear so definitely order one!

The roof deck bar on the Vanderbilt Grace Hotel offers one of the best harbor views in Newport. If you can, come in the evening and watch the sun set over the water while you enjoy a libation from the well stocked bar.

This is a must do in Newport. Hit the Vanderbilt 1 hour before sunset, take the lift to the rooftop bar, get in the scrum to order a drink at the bar and if you are lucky, when that hour is up, you will turn to fce the water at Newport and watch the sun drop into the distance and... More
