The Continental is somewhere you probably already stop by after work every once in a while to get a martini and some bar snacks with a coworker. But when it’s nice out, you should take the elevator up to the third floor and have that martini at their rooftop bar instead. It’s pretty small, with a few couches and tables scattered around the terrace, but it’s also partially indoors, which means that if it gets unexpectedly chilly or a thunder storm rolls around, you can just take shelter with your cocktails next to their indoor fire pit.
