If you strive to be a "beautiful person" and like to drink somewhere simply in order to look trendy or cool, this is your place. Hardly a "roofscape" - you're actually on the 4th floor of a 20 story hotel and you get to feast your eyes on the Rock'n'Roll McDonalds, Hard Rock Cafe, Rainforest Cafe, Portillo's, and an ok skyline view behind all those chains. The drinks are morbidly overpriced, as is the food. Douchy bouncers and "promoters" flood the establishment and it's presumably difficult to get into (why, I will never know). Many better rooftop options elsewhere. 


Came here for a girls night out relatively early in the night so there was plenty of seating and not too crazy packed for a rooftop bar. The place fills up and becomes more of a party atmosphere around 9. We enjoyed a delicious fruity sangria and a few other standard cocktails, priced for the neighborhood. The spring menu had just launched so we had some tasty small plates including an avocado spread with plantains and taro! This place has spectacular views and a modern trendy atmosphere, I would definitely come back for an upscale night out!
