Brave the seven floors to the top of Curtin House and a grand view of the city with the option of a chilled drink await you at the Rooftop Bar – unquestionably one of the best spots in the city for an open-air drink. As such, you'll undoubtedly find a mixed-bunch of patrons as the view, location and smoker-friendly environment draws all types on a warm evening.
Naturally, the success of a session at the Rooftop Bar is subject to weather conditions as, with the exception of umbrellas and gas heaters, it isn’t protected against the elements. Rooftop bar is open every day from 11am to 1am. Food is available from the interestingly named All Day Burger shack or downstairs from Mesa Verde.
Be warned, from December through to the end of March the Rooftop Cinema takes over (five nights a week, no screenings on Monday and Friday), and access to the roof is restricted to ticket holders after 8pm. This isn’t a bad thing, as the cinema screens a mostly well-picked selection of indie and cult films, art documentaries and Bill Murray features. It’s a pretty good way to spend a warm summer evening.
