Beautiful view and atmosphere with great drinks and bar bites (great sliders). Tables around the bar for more privacy, but the bar is an interesting scene.

We were sad to see the main floor bar at the Peninsula Hotel was closed, but decided to try the new one on the roof. The service was good, and the outdoor area looked beautiful, but inside there was no way to hold a conversation....More

Came on a week night and it was pretty busy, but not overly packed by 8pm. Service was very quick and the drinks/small bites were great. Definitely a bit on the pricey side, but a very fun spot overall.
