We checked out the views from five of our favorite Asheville rooftop bars on this edition of the GritVegas Weekend Update. Take a tour with us, from Capella on 9 to the Social Lounge, Pillar Bar to Top of the Monk & the Montford, and see what each one offers. Take a peek, and then read on to see where to go this weekend when you're not hanging out high above downtown Asheville. Presented by Grail Moviehouse
