While the pretty people flock on weekends for the Champagne brunch during the day and the outdoor fire pits at night, we think a weeknight at around 5:30pm is prime time. We went on a Tuesday evening and were able to snag a high-top table right under the retractable rooftop, perfect for people-watching and looking up at the sky.
Even better than the killer scenery were the specialty cocktails. The mojito ($12) was semi-frothy, not overly sweet, and the margarita ($10) was what one might call “mature.” (A salt rim wasn’t even an option.)
Incredible view, conversation-worthy drinks and the largest indoor-outdoor bar in the city--now if you only had that dress.
