For the season, there is one last dinner in HUB Restaurant’s popular Rooftop Dinner Summer Series, and HUB’s executive chef David Bishow and general manager Armando Gonzales have carefully crafted this one.

The pair worked creatively with the teams at both Whiskey Del Bac and Barrio Brewing to curate a five-course dining experience with a beautiful view of the city, too. Each course of the dinner has been paired with either a brew from Barrio Brewing’s selection or a cocktail crafted by the HUB team with Whiskey Del Bac’s whiskey.
