Best Place to Throw a Shindig

Windows on the River

A standby on the Flats’ East Bank, Windows on the River opened its doors in 1990 and expanded soon after to accommodate demand. It now offers the City View and Bridge View rooms, perfect for a fancy corporate dinner, bar mitzvah, or whatever you’re jonesing to celebrate. In the usually bustling Powerhouse complex, the energy is intense before your guests even walk in. The pro staff will treat them like serious VIPs. The menu is simple but unique, the dishes fresh and tasty. And the river view will make even the sloppiest toast sound like Hemingway. If money’s tight, tell your guest of honor you’re waiting until January, when Windows’ discounted off-season rates kick in.
