Our rooftop patio, located on the second floor of the Packard building, has the best view of downtown anywhere in the city. The rooftop patio is open to the public as a full-service bar throughout the week while not rented privately. We have hosted everything from weddings and receptions, to birthdays and a live ESPN broadcast.
