Pacific Ocean views, gorgeous sunsets, hand-picked wines, craft cocktails, and swoon-worthy bar bites all wait for you at The Rooftop Bar. Open to guests and the public on the sixth floor of Mission Pacific, the lounge-style rooftop bar and pool deck is one of the coolest bars in Oceanside. We know we’re biased, but just come see for yourself…
Of course, there are a few other spots to find a drink with a view in Oceanside — check out our roundup of some of the best bars in Oceanside here — nowhere else will you find such a full line-up of events, music, and more than The Rooftop Bar.
Feel-Good Beats & Booze (Almost) Every Day of the Week
While The Rooftop Bar is open daily, extra-good vibes, live DJs, and more take over the bar from Tuesday through Sunday, with a little something different each day to fit your mood.
What to know before you go: The Rooftop Bar has a 21+ policy after 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Saturday (or earlier if a DJ is scheduled to perform) and all day Sunday. Reservations are only available via email for parties of six and more — otherwise, you can just walk right on in!
