The bar menu reflects Stratus's global vibe: our vast selection of single malt scotches, traditional gins, icy vodkas, and warming tequilas were chosen with purpose. Those same liquors - along with seasonal ingredients and throwback recipes - make up our crafted cocktail list. Our craft beers are tapped, and a focused wine list has an emphasis on bubbles.
