This is not a very spacious bar, but it's a lovely place to grab a drink with a great view! Calm and quiet as well- very relaxing.

Vintage bar on top of Grand Hotel. Incredible lake and island views. I recommend going for a mid afternoon or sunset refreshment. Alternatively, spend the day there and watch the weather change.

This is a great bar with magnificent views but the prices are a bit high, even if you take into account that the tip is included.

The view of Lake Michigan is unbeliveable. You have got to see the chandlier, it looks like a bouquet of flowers.

The Cupola Bar at the Grand Hotel has the best view on the island and a great wait staff. Be sure to have a drink here if you visit.

We all came to watch the sun set in the evening sky. It's a tiny bar with tables and is light and airy. We enjoyed the view and the setting sun.

We had drinks here to watch the sunset. They have a pianist playing jazz and the ambiance was perfect!

There is an admission fee of $10 to enter the hotel during the day between 9am and 6pm. The Jockey Club, The Gate House, Woods Restaurant and Cawthorne's Village Inn are open to the public with no admission fee.

I am not sure they take reservations at the bar. I believe it's first come first served, but you might want to check with the Grand Hotel just to be sure. If you are not a guest of the hotel, you are required to pay $10... More
