A First Look at the Brass Monkey’s Roof Deck

So what was the scene at the Brass Monkey’s new rooftop bar after it appeared on UrbanDaddy yesterday? Well, crowded. (The Monkey is after, all, ground zero for birthdays, professional mixers, and after-work get-togethers.) It got worse than this (as you can see, the deck ain’t that big, with only a few tables), but hey with these views, who’s complaining? Something to think about: When the Standard’s roof deck opens high above this one, will a “Beware of Falling Mojitos” sign need to be posted?
