Day 97: Have a drink at Level 8

7 Apr

Level 8 is the top level of the swanky, modern Hotel Duval on the edge of downtown. It has become a popular hotspot at night and on weekends to grab a drink, drawing everyone from college students to high-powered lobbyists. The best part about the bar is its expansive outdoor area with views of downtown. I wish there was more of a skyline to oogle, but it’s still nice to be able to see the city and as far as FSU’s Doak Campbell stadium. Ladies, or gentlemen for that matter, if you’re looking for a date with a little cash in their pocket, look no further. On a recent evening, my drink cost $7. This is no grungy Palace Saloon. I would also warn that the dress code tends to match the prices. You’ll stand out if you show up in jeans and T-shirt. On weekends, especially, the women and men tend to bring their A-game. Level 8 also hosts a Wednesday “little black dress night” for professional young women. I’ve never been, but have it’s a great ladies night out/networking opportunity.
