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.

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
