Revelers enjoy the opening of the Angad Rainbow Terrace, atop the Angad Arts Hotel.
Despite having only opened in April, the Angad Arts Hotel's rooftop bar, the A.R.T. Angad Rainbow Terrace (3550 Samuel Shepard Drive)
, is quickly becoming the hottest of St. Louis hot spots.
With food and drinks from the hotel's restaurant, Grand Tavern (brought to you by star chef David Burke and beverage director Meredith Barry), not to mention that phenomenal thirteenth-floor view of the city, those in the know have been flocking to the Grand Center bar ever since it opened its doors.
And now, with the announcement of a summer concert series, things are about to kick into overdrive. Dubbed "Live in the Sky," the series is slated for ten Fridays, starting in May and running through September, and will feature artists performing on the roof with St. Louis' gorgeous skyline as the backdrop.

Just look at that view.
