Some people are lucky enough to be able to leave work at five o’clock and catch that glorious window of time known as happy hour. For Vertex members and guests, however, every hour at the rooftop bar is happy. Equal parts cool and comfortable, Vertex blends modern bar features with traditional architecture, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind venue.

A Style All Its Own

The art deco style of the Hotel Alex Johnson is carried through in the custom-designed bar and wine cabinet that house a premium selection of whiskeys, beers, and wines at the perfect temperature. Our bartenders are schooled on all the classics, but if you want something with a bold twist, shake it up with one of our custom cocktails. Plus, we have one of the most exclusive wine programs in the area; the Napa Technology WineStation revolutionizes the way we serve wine by the glass.

A blend of beauty and sophistication

Oh, and did we mention the view? Eleven stories high above downtown Rapid City, the view from Vertex is as spectacular as the ambiance. In the summer, you can venture out to the patio and relax next to a crackling fire pit while the stars start to come out for the night.
