Have a cocktail at The Top of the East

Written by: Aimsel Ponti


Maine Restaurant Week's Spirits PreviewYou’ll feel like you’re in another city as you sip your libation at the Top of The East lounge on the top floor of Portland’s in-town Westin Hotel. Panoramic views have been enjoyed there since 1963. The lighting is perfect, the seating is comfortable and this is a sweet spot to end a first date or just tuck into on an idle weeknight.
