    Stunning views, but the hotel just announced that this fall, they're allowing private guests only. Stop by before 10pm on summer evenings while the club is still "public." Read more

    Dress the part, meaning no Jack Rogers and Lilly Pulitzer dresses. Look elegant/fashion forward and make sure you can get in. With champagne in hand check out the view then head to the bathroom :-)

    One of the few nightspots where the bouncers mean it when they pull the "Sorry, private party" line. If you get in, check out the semi-hidden smokers' plank and its views.
