The bar has a great selection of drinks that go beyond the usual. One favorite is the old fashioned whiskey sour - not the usual whiskey sour (shaken egg white) amazing and not to be missed! Ask for Daniel or Jay!

Expensive fare compared to restaurants across the street, Restaurant isn't open all day long but there is food service on the rooftop pool deck 4th floor (unless it is raining) Room service available. Lunch/breakfast menu is limited and unremarkable.
