Love the view, the firepits outside, the great bar tender who knows his mixes. Hey what's not to love... oh yea, the prices. But then you only go around once. Highly Recommended.

The bar was private and offered a nice exclusive feel and great atmosphere at the top of the city next to nice fire pits.

Good service, great music and wonderful food and drinks. Very small menu and not large meals but what we had was excellent. Even on a chilly night the best place to be is up top on the roof outside. They have gas heaters that add heat and ambience.

Not much of a skyline to take in, but the fire pits outside are an enjoyable spot to have a drink. Reasonably priced.
