This has a spectacular view and is a quite spot to get away from the madness in the afternoon. In the evening there is live jazz.

The drinks are pricey, but the view makes it worth your visit. Lovely, lovely view. It is wonderful for freighter watching, too.

We recently attended the ballroom weekend. One of our favorite places to sit is this Bar. During the day the views are spectacular. At night you can enjoy the night sky and the illuminated bridge.

Friend and I excited to be able to walk the grounds and not pay, not a guest. Bar had great view. $25 for 2 mojitos. We even had snow flurries and watch the weather patterns in the sky come across. Very relaxing. At least go for one drink
