I have met with friends here several times during my stays and I always enjoy the view. I can't say any thing about the drinks because I only have a coke. Beware there are stairs to climb before you reach this bar at the top...More

The Cupola is a nice place to have a late night drink. On a clear night you can see the Mackinac Bridge very clearly. Great background piano music.

Wow. Visited this for a view of the island and a drink. Service was outstanding but the décor a hodgepodge.

The views are amazing if you are spry enough to climb stairs. If you are in a wheelchair, you are out of luck, no elevator. It is surprising considering they have made the rest of the hotel quite accessible. They should work on this next.

Great views and lots of nostalgia in the past. Mainly for adults to enjoy serenity and a smooth drink. Not for kids..

Every time we stay at the Grand we end up in the Cupola Bar at the end of our day. The view of the Straits is spectacular and it feels like your on top of the world .

I am not sure they take reservations at the bar. I believe it's first come first served, but you might want to check with the Grand Hotel just to be sure. If you are not a guest of the hotel, you are required to pay $10... More
