While Grand Rapids is home to lots of great bars, there is definitely a shortage when it comes to rooftop bars but finally the city is getting one just in time before summer comes to a close.

New Hotel Mertens, located on Oakes St. in Downtown Grand Rapids, announced on their website that their new rooftop lounge, Haute, will be open to the public this Wednesday the 8th at 4 p.m!

Located on the 9th floor of the hotel, Haute will not only offer a beautiful view of the skyline but also a full bar & cocktail list, food, and desserts. The space will seat 40 people at one time and no reservations are required as this will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. The new rooftop bar will be open 7 days a week -- 4p on weekdays and 11 a.m. on the weekends.

You'll have until October 31st to enjoy Grand Rapids' newest addition. You can keep up with them on their Facebook page.
