Last Light is a rooftop bar, but it isn’t the kind where you have a midnight dance party with a bunch of people you only just met. It’s more of a nice cocktail bar where you can have a casual drink with a couple of friends or coworkers. There’s a little indoor area with a small bar and a couple of booths, and there’s a large patio where you can hang out, drink negroni, and catch a sunset or shout all of your secrets at passing clouds. And if you decide to quit your job or leave work early, there’s a weekday Happy Hour from 3-6pm.
