A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A retractable glass roof provides year-round availability. This restaurant atop the Hotel Lincoln has both indoor and outdoor spaces, and is ideal for cocktail receptions. They offer a menu of small plates and a list of spirits that can't be beat!
  • Unobstructed water views from the outdoor patio provide the perfect background for sipping one of the bar's signature drinks and spending time with your guests.
  • Three-hour bar service is included in their event packages, as well as a generous selection of hors d'oeuvres, like smoked cheddar and ale dip or shrimp toast with spicy mayo.
