Review

The repurposed service elevator will whisk you up to this speakeasy-inspired rooftop bar at the Rafaello Hotel. As the elevator door opens you are likely to be met by a wall of music from the exuberant DJ and the noise of chattering hipsters in party mode. The atmosphere is dimly lit with tope mushroom walls, brown, dark wood and bonze furnishings. The overall feel is moody and upscale. For discerning drinkers, apart from its loft location and party atmosphere, there is little to lure you up to Drumbar.
