Today I had a chance to check out Strata, a cafe on the 50th floor of the Bitexco Financial Tower. There are three restaurants/bars/cafes that are supposed to be going in on the upper floors of the tower, but they are taking far longer than expected to open. Strata is the first one to finally get its act together.
Drinks at the cafe were understandably expensive, as this place is all about the experience. Not the cheapest spot for a cold afternoon drink, but probably the city's most unique.
