“Find this gem if staying at the Grand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

A sunset, a drink and a piano serenade, what a lovely after dinner venue. We moved straight from dinner to this favorite spot, yet it is never crowded as it seems people still haven't found it. It has a beautiful view, ambiance and charm, even if the drinks are priced as high as this bar is perched atop the Grand Hotel.

“Lovely view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Not very big room but the view was awesome. You can have coffee, tea or a drink. The service was good and we had a guy playing the piano, it was perfect.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I used to love this bar, but now that anyone is allowed in, at any time, it's overcrowded and noisy. While guests are required to be dressed for dinner, other tourists can come in any old thing. It's so disappointing.
