They really need to do some things up here on Donovan’s roof top. Like clean the utterly disgusting cushions and pillows that customers sit on! Paint the rusting poles around the deck and put the heaters in the right place for your paying customers and...More

Donovan's is right beside a tiny pool on the roof of the Donovan Hotel. The pool is so tiny that it's basically useless and they may as well just get rid of it and improve the rooftop bar. Seating is limited and not very comfortable....More

The rooftoop bar is popular with guests and locals. One of the few views with a pool, it's in a chic location.

We had an early evening business reception. We were served beef, duck and other samplers. All of them very delucious. The selection on beers was a little scarce, but the view compensated for it.

We stayed at The Donovan and visited the rooftop bar one balmy evening. Service was not great and to be honest the dearest drinks we had the whole trip. Ok as a one off but could not spend the evening here.

The view is beautiful! It was fun hanging out n the rooftop bar. I'm only giving this 2 stars because the bartenders were fairly clueless about drinks, attempted to charge me for 2 extra drinks that I did not have, and shortchanged me when I...More
