9 Must-Try Rooftop Patios in Collin County

The weather in North Texas is usually one of two extremes, three-digit heatwaves or snowmageddon. However, we get about six weeks of really nice weather that we must take advantage of. During the Spring, early Summer, and Fall, I enjoy dining on a cool rooftop patio, sipping a margarita (this is Texas after all) and taking in picturesque views that can only be enjoyed from up high, hopefully with misters, fans, and plenty of water nearby.

Here is a list of some of the best rooftop patios in Collin County.

Legacy Hall, Plano

Choose from one of the many food options on the ground floor, grab a drink from the upstairs bar, and sit on the patio overlooking the courtyard at Legacy Hall. There’s often a band playing on the weekends.

Urban Crust, Plano

Come for the pizza, stay for the rooftop vibes, and visit the ice bar for a unique experience.
