Barbie's First Rooftop Bar

Seems like we've been waiting a long, long time for this: the city's first rooftop bar (to my knowledge) is finally open!

Vin de Set, from the brains behind Eleven Eleven Mississippi, is open at 2017 Chouteau, on the third floor. The rooftop deck boasts 4,000 square feet of downtown-viewing pleasure. (Now, Mlle. Cherry has a teensy problem with their interpretation of "2017" into the mangled Franglais of "Vin de Set," but this will not hold her back from rooftop alfresco...)

Are you certain Vin De Set is open? Their answering machine says otherwise, although it is an older message. I'm still seeing a lot of contractor trucks in the lot in the am.

'Equally looking forward to enjoying the view. See ya there...

Stopping by there tonight!

So it is open now? Or it's in the process of opening? Sounds awesome.

I drove down Chouteau the other day and all the tables & chairs were arranged on the roof. It was early but it looked like they might have been preparing for a soft opening.

This is indeed exciting as rooftop dining is oh so urban!

I biked by there on monday and it did not look like they were open. should be good, its a shame they missed the last month of below 90 degree weather.
