Bar
“Open 11 am - 11 pm, Sunday - Wednesday; 11 am - 12 am, Thursday - Saturday. Grab a flight and watch the sunset from the rooftop terrace. Cornhole, open seating, and heaters turn this sky-high spot into the perfect place for conversation and casual fun. (And the indoor ambiance is just as enjoyable.)”

Bar
“This is our favorite upscale restaurant. Latin/Spanish food. Reservations recommended. Definitely more of a splurge, BUT you could go to the other side of the restaurant - Dulce del Alma - for tapas, drinks, and desserts for a more cost-friendly evening. Walk-in only on this side.”
