Reviewed August 11, 2012

We paid the $10.00 to get into the hotel without staying there. We spent the day on the grounds, and wound up in this beyond charming little bar at the top of the hotel, looking at the sunset over the lakes and the bridge. Add this to your bucket list.

“cozy”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

The cupola is way up top of Grand Hotel with unsurpassed views of the straits of Mackinaw with mighty fine cocktails. People enjoy a good game of cards up there, too. Beautiful.

“Nice view, poor service”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

The view in the Cupola Bar is fantastic, however, be prepared to pay insanely high prices for the drinks coupled with very slow service!
