Beautiful rooftop bar, Limited cocktails/spirits menu with bartenders with limited knowledge. This establishment is aimed at wines by the bottle. Service was pretty bad. I wasn't impressed. View was incredible though

Had a couple drinks at the rooftop bar on a rainy afternoon. Drinks were good, although pricey. Service by the bartender was good but he seemed to be unhappy with his work.

It was a cold visit to Pavilion Bar but fab just the same. The server was attentive. Drinks are pricey but it's worth it for the view. I recommend a stop here for drinks.

Told bartender it's my 50th bday and indicated we were visiting my birth City. Could not have been more rude! Front desk was also very rude when we asked how to get to roof top bar. Not impressed!

I'm guessing but doubt if they take reservations for the Pavilion. You can check (ph. call) but when they have a big crowd you can still stand @ the bar until a table or seating opens up.
