    VIBE

    Summer nights at DNV feel like an exclusive Miami pool party. The stylish crowd, spinning DJ, and glowing pool keep it sexy and laidback − plus, we love the contrast of sipping beer out of a can while rocking our chicest and highest heels. As the evening wears on, the crowd becomes younger and hipper, but the scene is still too cool for dancing.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    This place has Miami nightclub vibes by night, so strappy heels, a short skirt, and sexy top would do the trick.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    DNV is a well-kept secret, so we feel like we’re in an exclusive club (but without the cover charge or the wait to get in). Early in the evening it’s usually not packed, which makes sunset chaise lounging quite a treat.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    While it’s nice to be outside, the view isn’t anything spectacular. We wouldn’t come here specifically for the city sights — P.O.V. at the W would be a better option for that.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    During the daytime, this rooftop lounge is reserved for hotel guests, so wait until after work to make a pit stop at DNV. Also, don’t forget to check the weather — or better yet, just call ahead to make sure the rooftop with be open for the night. The deck opens Memorial Day weekend and closes when it gets too cold in fall.
