We stumbled on Stratus staying at the Monaco last year and it was nice enough, but not what we were looking for that night. This year we spent our second anniversary at the Monaco (amazing) and we thought Stratus would fit our visit more. I...More

This place could be so happening because it's a really cool location, but instead, it is so unbelievably mismanaged and lame. Sadly, they don't know how to market the venue, the line to get in is completely dead, the VIP tables are completely dead, and...More

After my visit to the Red Owl Tavern, I was not impressed with their rooftop bar. It was empty, which was kind of a nice change of pace, but they were trying too hard to be like a Los Angeles club than true to Philly....More

I was staying at the Monaco and went to the rooftop lounge twice. First, my daughter and I went to have a cocktail in the evening, before the lounge got crowded. The drinks were pretty good, but we didn't have anything to eat. Later that...More

Anyplace else this would be a great lounge- comfortable seating, good music, eclectic spaces, but claiming that it's a roof top lounge and not have any kind of view of the city is supremely disappointing..More

Great atmosphere and wonderful bar. I'm glad someone suggested this place. The dj did a good job entertaining the crowd. There was enough seating so it did not feel too crowded.

Because of being in the historic center, the Rooftop bar can't directly overlook the city, so while the side rooms can, they can be reserved. They didn't know how to make my spouses drink, my Martini was okay. Server was helpful.More

Description
The bar menu reflects Stratus's global vibe: our vast selection of single malt scotches, traditional gins, icy vodkas, and warming tequilas were chosen with purpose. Those same liquors - along with seasonal ingredients and throwback recipes - make up our crafted cocktail list. Our craft beers are tapped, and a focused wine list has an emphasis on bubbles.
