Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending the opening party for City Sights, a new area within Altitude Sky Lounge in the Gaslamp Marriott. The rooftop as a whole boasts a beautiful view and an incredible setting for a night out.
Thursday was clear, with just a slight chill in the air, but the heated, open air deck felt very nice despite the weather. Guests at the opening party were treated to a host of appetizers and cocktails.
Delicious chicken satay skewers with Thai peanut sauce were served and enjoyed. These were in close competition with those made by one of my best friends back home who makes the best satay sauce ever! So good!
Meat on a stick is always a good idea, and more skewers were served. Steak with a chipotle rub was the perfect compliment and a nice contrasting flavor from the chicken.
A scrumptious hummus was served with pita.
My favorite from this table? The ahi tuna served atop a bed of seaweed salad, on a thin tostada. Delicious.
My husband started with the Raspberry Ice -- Sky Raspberry, lemonade, Sierra Mist, raspberries, and lemon. Refreshing!
More shots of the gorgeous view!
Sipped by the cozy fire pit, it was the perfect end to the party.
Altitude offers an array of fun snacks and beverages, and hosts a happy hour Monday - Friday from 5 to 7, and all day Sunday! I can't wait to go back!
