    An up-top colorful bar will make for a relaxing, summertime experience. It will get crowded in a hurry, but there is a reason for that. It's a place to experience. Whiskey drinks hit the spot here.

    An Open-air rooftop bar makes delicious drinks go to your head that much faster! Lines get long, so maybe get their a bit early? Try late afternoon... right after you get prettied up at our spa ;)

    The glass-enclosed rooftop offers unparalleled views of the cityscape, as well as a table for four you could probably nab if you got there super early (Protip: get there super early). Read more
