Now, who doesn’t love a rooftop bar? Baker & Able is the perfect spot for happy hours, date nights and all other celebrations—big or small.

This opening can be found at the top of 106 Jefferson. Here, you’ll pay homage to two space traveling monkeys, sip on delicious cocktails and take in the views of Huntsville. What could be better?

2. Open now—Sea Salt Urban Oyster Bar

Watch out Huntsville, a new oyster bar is in town. Here, you can enjoy oysters from the East Coast, West Coast or Gulf Coast.

Not a fan of oysters? Get a taste of the sea by ordering lobster, shrimp, crab or fish. You have to check out the adult grilled cheese—jumbo lump crab, truffle triple creme brie, pear chutney and sriracha. Delicious.

Bonus—Seal Salt has 24 beers on tap!
