Nuvolé, a swanky rooftop bar and lounge, is now open on the 22nd floor of the new AC Hotel

Add a new Uptown rooftop to your rotation. Nuvolé Rooftop TwentyTwo is now open at the Epicentre.

It’s located on the 22nd floor of the new dual-branded AC Hotel and Residence Inn.

The 2,700-square-foot indoor space features a large U-shaped bar with floor-to-ceiling windows. Outside there’s 2,400 square feet of partially covered patio space with lounge seating and fire tables.

The views are insane from all sides.

The menu consists of small plates and shareables like cheese and charcuterie boards.

It’s divided into”land and sea” options like prime beef sliders ($16), lobster club sliders ($18), tuna poke ($15) and crab cakes ($15). Most items are priced $12-$18.

Asheville restaurateur Peter Pollay consulted on the menu. Roy Darling is the executive chef.

And what’s a rooftop view without a cocktail or two?

The signature Nuvolé GT ($14) is a popular choice with a refreshing mix of Hendrick’s gin, Fever Tree tonic, strawberries, lime, mint and rosemary.
