Summer may be winding down, but the evening weather still allows for some outdoor nightlife. Enjoy Travel recently recognized the best rooftop bars in America and a Detroit establishment made the list.
“The United States is brimming with brilliant rooftop bars,” Enjoy Travel exclaims. Furthermore, these spots typically provide a unique atmosphere experience that is unlike many other bars in the surrounding area.
The main reason most patrons visit a rooftop bar is because of the view, as opposed to a particular menu item. In Enjoy Travel’s feature, each of the 25 roof bars they list are located within a major city. At sundown, these establishments enable you to fully appreciate your city’s skyline. From lookouts over waterfronts, to skyline lights, to beautiful panoramic, the right rooftop bar makes you feel like you are in the middle of the cities postcard.
In Detroit, the bar that was named is atop a hotel. This is a common practice in the country, for hotels or major attractions to add such an ambiance to experience of their building.
