The Metropolitan at The 9 has been promising a whole new look and identity for its rooftop bar, formerly known as Azure. All will be revealed on May 20, when the hotel unveils its new rooftop sky-club and lounge: the Garden of Eden.

Covering the 12th floor of the Metropolitan at The 9 hotel, Garden of Eden "offers a lush and elevated escape from the busy streets below." The space combines traditional and bar seating with lounge-style seating. The rooftop bar will transition from a chill bar during the day and afternoon to a more lively DJ-fueled lounge in the evenings.

Beer, wine and craft cocktails will be joined by "bar bites" at happy hour, during dinner and at weekend brunch. On the menu are items like shrimp cocktail, meat and cheese boards, vegetarian potstickers, salads, flatbreads, tacos, sliders and burgers.

"The Geis Hospitality Group is excited to bring something new, fresh and unseen to not only the Cleveland market but Ohio as a whole," say reps. "The vision for the new Rooftop Lounge & Sky-Club is to offer our guests an ‘experience’ rather than just an establishment to eat and drink at. Our team, from construction to marketing, have been working around the clock to deliver a truly one-of-a-kind experience unlike any other. And while it’s true that the people of Cleveland have lofty expectations, our team has ensured that this experience will meet the even higher expectations that we have set for ourselves.”

 After the club's launch weekend, Garden of Eden will be open 4-11 p.m.  Monday through Wednesday, 4 p.m.-1 a.m. Thursday, and 4 p.m.-2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
