Best Rooftop Cocktailing

The View and Vinebar

There are plenty of options for those looking to quaff a great cocktail in the Land of Cleves, but to do so beneath a blanket of deep blue dotted with stars is decidedly more elusive. Behold the View nightclub and Vinebar, the name of which is duly earned. The rooftop bar features an unobstructed view of Cleveland in an industrial urban-chic setting. It all culminates in a perfect backdrop for sipping a sexy Syrah or classic Martini. If the weather goes south, step into the main bar and visit one of the computerized sommeliers. They're one part robot, one part vintner, and one part parlor diversion. Each of the two units houses 16 bottles of select wines. Just swipe your prepaid card and decant your vino of choice. Call that a soda fountain for big kids.
