“Very neat bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

A friend and I went up to Skybar after we had been at Thursday night live. This place wasn't very busy until about an hour later. Drinks were great as well was the live music! Small dance floor but everyone is willing to share :)

“don't waste your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

So we TRIED to go to skybar one night (wasn't even late yet) and were refused at the door by the bouncers. One person in our party had been there previously and they told him his attire was not appropriate for the establishment. Evidently the polo shirt with a UK insignia (it was a game day after all) and khakis he was wearing were not fancy enough to go get a drink at this bar around 8 oclock. Our other friend in the party was a minority and while I would not go so far as to accuse the bouncer of discrimination it still stands out as a distinct possibility. It has been almost a year since this incident, but I was so thoroughly disgusted that I will never attempt to go back. My opinion- don't subject yourself to their judgement.
