Rooftop bar at 21c named among the best bars in the country

The rooftop bar at downtown's 21c Museum Hotel is turning heads, and this time, the heads of the food-obsessed team at Food Network.

Rookwood tile, TVs hidden behind mirrors and a 100-year-old floor from the building’s previous life as the Hotel Metropole are a few of the unique features of the 65-seat rooftop bar. Not only that, but the rooftop vantage point gives guests killer views of downtown and beyond.

The bar's ever-evolving seasonal drink list contains options like The Admiral, which is made with bourbon, cherry liqueur, orange juice and house-made cherry bitters; or The Gidget — vodka and orange blossom-lemon syrup topped with club soda. In the warmer months, the menu includes slushie cocktails. There's also a food menu, complete with cheese, charcuterie and vegetable boards, and soft pretzels.
