M Bar feels like the bougie rooftop lounge of a newly-constructed high-rise apartment building, only with a full bar. There’s a fire pit, plenty of outdoor seating, and an awesome view of the city from the 14th floor. Make a reservation for happy hour, and then drink froze while sitting on a swing. The charcuterie is good too - but make sure to get off the swing for that.
