Altana Rooftop Lounge is kicking off their First Friday opening event of the year today, March 4th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

New art

If you were a guest at any of their showings last year, you might be able to recognize some familiar pieces by Megan Nelson, Thomas Valentine and Jain Coble. Altana's new featured artists this season are Jenni Buffington and Jazmine Gabriel, as well as fresh new metal sculptures by Steven Georges. The art is being featured on the second floor inside Altana by Baldwin's Gallery, and is absolutely worth checking out.

The mission of this local gallery is to consistently help artists and artisans “show more, sell more and do more”. Founder Violet Baldwin has over 20 years of experience in retail and management. and she has always had a special love for art, uniquely handmade items, and creativity.

Outstanding cocktails

Also worth checking out is the menu at Altana. Their small plates feature shrimp cocktails, charcuterie board, and avocado fries. If you come hungry, there are short ribs, crispy duck, and the famous Altana burger, to name a few.

Altana also crafts outstanding cocktails. Espresso Martini will for sure give that energy kick. Pomegranate Ginger Mule is another unique blend of flavors, and personally I can't wait for the summer months where I'll be able to have this one, a seasonal specialty with watermelon, again:

Altana is one of several trendy food spots in the heart of Lancaster, PA. This place works perfect for a meetup with friends, but the atmosphere also makes it a good pick for a date night out in a stylish setting.
