Sunset Cocktail Terrace at the Grove Park Inn

Ah... one of my favorite places in Asheville: the Sunset Cocktail Terrace at the Grove Park Inn. If you're feeling a little fancy and want a grand experience, just a few minutes downtown, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, lies this oasis. There are multiple restaurants to choose from (some require reservations, others don't), but if you want a drink and/or app, the Sunset Cocktail Terrace is where you want to be.

Things to consider:

  • If you can get there for sunset (it will be crowded on certain days) it's extra beautiful, but honestly the view is breathtaking all day long.
  • Garage parking is free for the first 3 hours, so do that if you can. During certain holidays and special occasions they charge for parking, so call ahead if you have questions. 
  • The sunset terrace is first come first serve
  • Drink prices are more expensive than usual... because, look at that view!


  • Daily: 11:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. (weather permitting)
