Bucket List: Have a drink at the Crowne Plaza

Dayton looks so lovely when it gets all dressed up for a Friday night! See it for yourself at View 162, the restaurant and cocktail lounge on the roof level of the Crowne Plaza hotel downtown.

And while you're enchanted with the view of Dayton's sparkling lights, why not sip a yummy cocktail? With a fully-stocked bar, the experienced bar staff will make you just about any drink you can imagine.  Try the cosmopolitan (they used raspberry vodka for a twist) or the lemon drop martini – both are wonderful. 

If you're hungry, you're in luck!  View 162 offers a variable menu full of delicious options.  They are able to modify dishes to make them vegetarian and they aren't even opposed to bringing out the lunch menu if you're looking for a little lighter fare. 

Every detail is definitely that of a cocktail lounge, from the contemporary style decor to the iconic shiny, black piano in the corner.  View 162 even has live Jazz music on the weekends to entertain you while you stare at our beautiful city and unwind. 

Seeing the gorgeous lights of the Dayton skyline is a fantastic way to spend an evening and it's something every Daytonian should experience at least once.
