Stratus is one of the coolest rooftop bars I have been to. It is a very chill atmosphere until the DJ starts up and then you can dance the night away. Great staff, great décor and an all around great time!

I always have a good time here. The drinks are expensive but tasty. The DJ is always on point! Can sometimes have a young crowd. Great place to go in the summer with friends or significant other. There is typically a cover around $10.
