Beginning in spring and running until fall, people often seek out patios and rooftops. There are quite a few hot spots in Atlanta that offer them, like Six Feet Under and Tin Lizzy's, but dining isn't the only experience Atlanta rooftops have to offer. 

Check out these 6 sizzling  summer rooftop events:
