The newly renovated rooftop pool at the Colonnade Hotel is an out-of-this-city experience. Small and chic and 13 floors up, the new design, front-gate lounges, and modern furniture leave any institutional feeling behind. Get in while you can, and decide whether it’s the heralded bar scene, views, or glamour that keep you coming back like the locals.
