Took about 20min to get an overpriced drink that wasn't very good in a plastic cup. The view is nice though. I would recommend going to one of the nicer places downtown to get a cocktail that will blow your socks off for the same price.

Hey Fancy pants, oh you talking to me! I guess you are! Some co workers and I heard the rooftop here was top notch so we wanted to check it out! Naturally, no one told us, that the rooftop pool and lounge was actually on the 7th floor, not the R button in the elevator.. so the next thing you know we are stuck walking flights of stairs down to the beautiful ground level bar! The place is called Departure, and has an old school looking flying machine above the bar! Yes fancy people drinking, fancy drinks all around the bar! Our waitress was super sweet and we told her about our attempt to get upstairs! So after she brought our round of drinks, she said she would get the manager to take us up to the "rooftop" bar himself.. Which was very sweet and wonderful service! The drinks were great, (I had beer) but they are pricey! If you want to hang with fancy pants folks (I did see a women with red leather socks under her high heels?) you gotta pay the price! Finally we did get up stairs to check out the outdoor bar thanks to the manager exclusive tour.. It was a beautiful view as you see downtown Denver in the distance, and during the day I guarantee this would be a legit view of the mountains! There is a nice bar upstairs and a beautiful pool! The manager said they pride themselves on having some of the best bartenders in town and they even have a small basement bar that is reservation only! I dig this place for sure, and would go back.. But next time I might see if someone else wants to get this round.. $$ :)

Cocktails were good but at $14 for one small drink I definitely won't spend the whole night drinking there. Interesting mix of people. Nice firepits and view but overpriced and waitress was super rude.
