Kabana Rooftop Soft Opening

Rooftop Bars are SO HOT in Richmond right now. Kabana Rooftop is Richmond's newest addition to the rooftop bar scene. I was lucky enough to get an invite to their soft opening via my bro & sis in-law. Located in the heart of Downtown Richmond, Kabana is on the 20th floor of the Hampton Inn and Suites, located at 700 E. Main Street here in RVA. You will see the restaurant Belle and James on the right, but enter on the left, take the (buttonless) elevator and get transported to luxury.

Chinese Scallion Pancake with smoked shiitakes, black garlic cream cheese, and bok choy. The pancake was too thick for my liking and a little tough. It might have died in the window. :( Overall, the food was pretty meh. We waited incredibly long for drinks/food/service. However, I have helped open a few restaurants, so I know that it will take a few months for the front and back of the house to get into the groove. No disrespect, it's just the nature of the beast. (And who really cares when you've got an amazing view!)  I will definitely be back for Thai Tea Panna Cotta and some dranks!!
