At the top of Halcyon, a new hotel in Cherry Creek, sits Departure Elevated, a sleek newly launched rooftop patio, complete with a pool, cabanas, plus tables and banquettes that provide a variety of options for seating.
On the menu are modern Asian bites, in the same vein as those found at the downstairs restaurant, Departure, helmed by executive chef Gregory Gourdet. Dim sum carts offer guests handmade dumplings, kushiyaki grilled meat and seafood, plus a variety of sushi hand rolls. Other small bites are also available, including miso deviled eggs, taro chips, and tsukemono, fermented and pickled Japanese vegetables.
Those seeking a drink get to choose from six drinks with different base spirits, from vodka and gin to bourbon and rum. If you had to order just one, go for the Silver Lining, a mix of green tea-infused vodka with junmai sake, lemon, honey, Amaro Nonino, and cardamom bitters. There are several non-alcoholic cocktails, and a variety of wines, beers, and sake served by the glass.
