The Roof at Black+Blue restaurant is one of my favourite rooftop patios. It is part of the Glowbal restaurant group and they have an amazing cocktail hour from 2:30-5:30pm. The interior design and sophisticated atmosphere are the best parts of coming here; you ride up a special glass elevator to the top floor, which is akin to an outdoor oasis in this concrete jungle. The lounge area has cozy seating with fireplaces, light music, and a view of the top of the city. Perfect for a girls’ chat over drinks or date night.
For drinks, the red wine is decent but I would definitely recommend their sangria (pictured). This cocktail contains a moderate portion of alcohol so being a lightweight I definitely felt tipsy halfway through.
The food was satisfactory, although the cocktail menu seems to lean towards an abundance of bread. The flatbreads shown here are filling, as was the Kale+Artichoke dip with goat cheese that was very tasty. I was not a huge fan of their charcuterie board as it was slightly dry so try something else from their menu. Overall, the nicest part of this restaurant was being surrounded by such a beautiful and elegant setting.
