What is up?

Modern and hip, The Heights in the Renaissance Hotel is Toledo’s only rooftop bar, and it is impressive. The panoramic views of the Maumee River and urban landscape are spectacular, whether you are seated indoors or on the expansive patio. The sleek, industrial-esque d├ęcor is upscale, inviting and comfortable. The extensive menu of specialty cocktails, craft beers and award-winning wines are perfectly synched with an inventive selection of small plates and wood-fired flatbread pizzas, all with Instagram-able presentations. In the light of day, the mood is bright and cheerful; at night, on a backdrop of city lights, The Heights becomes intimate and romantic, energized and festive. The combination of consistently high-quality food, beverages and service, Happy Hour specials and private and semi-private rental options make this a destination for hotel guests and office workers throughout the downtown, residents from the greater Toledo area and the city’s movers and shakers. The Heights is more than an American bar and restaurant, it’s an experience.
