  My friends on the rooftop of the Peabody
by myrtle

As I said I love to go to the rooftop of the peabody to just look out on the rest of the city & the river. During the summer months there are Peabody rooftop parties every Thursday night. Ladies get in early before 8:00pm, but you have to get there even earlier than that to stand in line at the elevator. Make sure you get there at least by 7:30 just so you can get to the rooftop by 8:00. Don't think you can take the stairs all the way up and bypass the line at the elevator either. We tried that once and once we got to the top floor the door was locked and we had to go back down one flight of stairs and wait for the elevator up anyway. You also have to buy tickets to drink, which really sucks, but you can get these once you get to the rooftop. The tickets are good on any Thursday night rooftop party, so if you have some left over you can always use them again when you go back. Unfortunately for tourists this may not be very useful. From the rooftop you can also get a great picture of the Peabody sign.
