What’s better than a cocktail? A cocktail with a view. One thing I’ve learned from living in the Yellowhammer State is that there is nothing quite like an Alabama sunset. Grab a drink and enjoy the view. Keep reading for the deets on five places you can sip and watch.

1. Burritt on the Mountain

Cocktails at the View, hosted by Burritt on the Mountain, was one of the first Huntsville events I heard about after moving to Rocket City. Needless to say, it is a favorite among Huntsvillians. You can enjoy the view from an overlook and your cocktails from a full service cash bar.

Don’t spend one more Wednesday without a cocktail in your hand:

Whether you’re sipping on a signature cocktail, a local craft beer or a glass of wine, you’ll enjoy a unique view of downtown Huntsville at this spot.

You can find BarVista on the second floor of the AC Hotel Downtown Huntsville. Here, you’ll overlook Big Spring Park.

Regardless of the weather, BarVista’s climate controlled outdoor terrace is ready to serve scrumptious food and tasty drinks. You can check out their drink menu ahead of time. I already have—I have my eyes on the Mimosa Margarita.

Did you know the first monkeys to successfully complete and survive a round trip to space were Miss Baker and Miss Able? They rode to space in a Huntsville-built rocket—once again, showing that Rocket City is the perfect nickname. You can pay tribute to them at their namesake bar, Baker & Able.

You’ll find this rooftop bar at downtown Huntsville’s newest hotel, 106 Jefferson. Look out for the two monkeys climbing up the hotel. Delicious drinks and a chance to show your admiration for your city? Count me in.

You can lay bananas on Miss Baker’s grave at the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. Another way to pay homage is by lifting your glass:
