The Roof brings the seaside to you.

My name is Jeff Guinn, and I’m the food and beverage director for The Broadway hotel. The Roof, our rooftop bar, is Columbia’s premier entertainment venue to connect with friends, listen to local music, or dance the night away. There’s nothing like its indoor–outdoor seating areas, complete with outdoor fire pit tables that boast the most spectacular views of the Columbia area. Most importantly, both the indoor and outdoor areas of The Roof feature a fully stocked bar.

Our chefs serve a spectacular array of small plates and appetizers along with our hand-crafted cocktails and featured beer on tap from Columbia and Missouri craft breweries. This summer, we want to make The Roof a destination: If you can’t make it to the beach, let us bring the beach to you.
