Then take a moment to indulge in a Prohibition-inspired craft cocktails and shareable plates with a group of friends or your loved ones. And don't forget to make a wish in the Wishing Chair. It's the perfect selfie to post of your visit to Smith Tower.

Went for the views but the attraction was worth it in itself! Very cleverly set up - like a scavenger hunt based on the history of the tower. The bar at the top is just an added bonus! Well worth a visit.More

We did the tour, which was very fun and cool then finished with a drink at the top. The view from the bar is incredible with a 360 degree observatory deck. It was a little pricey but worth the money.
