Update: Due to anticipated poor weather conditions, Assembly Rooftop Lounge will now open on April 30 at 7 p.m.

Assembly Rooftop Lounge, the long-known-about but hush-hush bar atop the recently rebranded Logan Hotel (previously the Four Seasons), will open April 28. 

Situated nine stories above the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the lounge boasts both open-air and glass-enclosed views of City Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Fairmount Park. The glass-enclosed bar, which seats about 35 people, will be open year-round. The outdoor lounge can squeeze a crowd of about 150 during spring and summer months.

The bar menu focuses on champagne and champagne cocktails. Highlights include a 2004 Grand Vintage Rosé Möet & Chandon sold by the glass, a French 75 and a Prince of Wales, made with Rittenhouse rye, maraschino, broiled pineapple and a top-off of champagne. Beer and wine options are also available.

For food, anticipate upper-scale bar snacks like a charcuterie board, yellowfin tuna tartare and oysters. 

The minimalistic rooftop bar was designed by Bower Lewis Thrower Architects (see: The Rittenhouse Hotel), based out of Center City, and Dawson Design Associates, out of Seattle. Inside are backlit mirrored panels, a combination of modular and high-top seating and walls adorned with photography. To boot, there's a "selfie wall" near the entrance that displays photos taken at the lounge.

Guests can enter at a devoted street level entrance on Logan Circle. Though it will open at 7 p.m. on opening night, its standard hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to late, and Friday through Sunday from 3 p.m. to late.
