Enjoyed the firepits at night! The food we had was excellent and so was the service. You have to try the antioxidant mojito. Yum! A unique night out.

The Vertex Skybar is decorated beautifully. Lovely views from up ihgh. The staff is very friendly & accommendating. The drinks are pricey but the whole atmosphere makes up for it. We missed the appetizers because of the time we arrived at the bar but heard they are delicilous.

Being the only gig going in Rapid City on Christmas, the Vertex was our choice. A good stab was taken at making this unique space a great club, but it fell short. The decorating is an upscale version of a 1930's club, but the lighting in our room glared in our eyes. Our waiter was very friendly, but we basically needed to hold his hand to get the place running. We were the first customers, and I needed to ask him to light the candles and clean the tables; my husband asked him to turn down the music so we could talk. A special Christmas menu had been prepared by the chef, but throughout the meal when we had questions about it, the waiter had no knowledge of it - he kept going back to ask. The kitchen is down on the 2nd floor, so the food is slow in coming, and the water is lukewarm, as it's held in thermoses on the 10th floor. The food was very disappointing as well... and by Rapid City standards was very expensive. The soup was too salty, presentation unkempt, veal tough, desserts sickeningly sweet. Thumbs down.
