** Please Note The LOOKOUT Rooftop + Bar is closed for the winter season and will re-open in the Spring. ** Building on top of the new POV inside our inspired hotel, we created The Lookout Rooftop Bar, a celebration of visionary thinking mixed with maverick mojo. Up, and out, a pinnacle design unfurls against killer skyline and harbor views. Bold character oozes over the expanse, filled with cozy couches and community spaces, a railing bar and jaunty ell, modern intrigue and signature surprise. Elemental to the concept, a desire to feed the senses-drinks masterfully rendered by virtuoso mixologists, small plates in sync with a sharing ethos, tracks laid down on tone with the vibe, and everywhere, a vantage point on what's next.

The place is alright, it will get full very fast and the service will slow down, most of the place has large tables so you will have to share most likely, drinks are alright, no promotions though.

Staff constantly watches and asks people not to do whatever they are doing. Can’t stand here, can’t hold a drink that way, can’t come in because we don’t like the way you dressed. Terrible service. Avoid this place, it’s overrated and not worth the wait...More

Terrible experience. Serving a drink took more than 30 minutes. There was a mistake at the bill and the manager was not there to fix the chargers. At last, the waiting line is 30 – 40 Minutes…

As a hotel guest, there is no limit since all guests have access at all time to the rooftop. However for non-guests, IDs are checked since it is understood that those persons are going to the bar versus just sightseeing. So... More
