Classic and chic, the Observation Bar was formerly the First-Class Lounge and served as the hub for lively discussions over delicious drinks. Original artwork still hangs above the bar, which is lined with Art Deco tables, chairs and decor. Completing the 30’s look are distinct torchiere lamps, which give the room a soft, retro glow. So order a cocktail, sit back and enjoy this treasured downtown tradition.
