EDGEWATER — Edgewater's first rooftop patio bar opened this week at Pearl's Southern Comfort, serving up drinks and appetizers to adults only while overlooking North Broadway.
Owner Danny Beck said he'd planned to open the patio last year, but with weather and other delays, the process took longer than expected.
Now he said the patio is in full-swing and quickly becoming a spot both dining regulars and new visitors enjoy.
The patio seats about 40 people and is open from 5-10 p.m. Wednesdays-Fridays and 5-11 p.m. Saturdays and only serves drinks and appetizers, Beck said.
The only rule: No kids allowed.
Some choose to share some of Pearl's substantial staple appetizers like the cornbread, catfish bites and rib sampler with a drink before heading downstairs for dinner, while others have come up to the roof for an after-dinner cocktail at sunset, Beck said.
