    You go for the view and to check it off your bucket list - not for the drinks or the (very surly) staff.

    Real bad hospitality service. They had me remove my hat because they said that was their policy. Even though their staff performing on stage they were wearing hats. "What a double standards"

    Не стоит ожидать от бара, в который все идут за панорамным видом, хороших коктейлей. Если уж вас занесло на эту верхотуру, выпейте кофейку, насладитесь видом и идите в нормальное место.
