Stratus is the rooftop bar at Hotel Monaco in Old City and it’s probably the highest up place you can be in the area without taking a helicopter tour or building a drone big enough to sit on. It’s a pretty classic hotel rooftop lounge, with lots of low white couches and a few overpriced cocktails, but it has one of the best views of the city, which makes it worth bringing any out-of-town visitors to after a long day of staring at old buildings.
