CINCINNATI, OH , April 3, 2015: The Top of the Park,  has more to celebrate on its seasonal opener this year.    The popularity of the rooftop terrace at the Marriott Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown at the Phelps is the reason for the expansion. Now more people will be able to enjoy the Top of the Park starting on Red’s Opening Day.

This spectacular venue already  has unparalleled views of Lytle Park, Downtown Cincinnati, the Ohio River, and Mt. Adams, but now it has taken it to a new level, literally. The expansion is one floor above the original Top of the Park which widens the view to nearly 360 degrees.  Guests  have access to the upper level from indoors and the lower rooftop terrace.  The addition is complete with a full bar, communal fire table, fire pit, and soft seating.  The perimeter bar seating takes in full view of the Great American Ballpark and the Friday night home – game fireworks.  Top of the Park is truly a homerun for downtown Cincinnati.

Starting Monday, April 6, Red’s Opening Day, (from 1pm – 10 pm) the Top of the Park will be open Tuesday – Thursday from 5 pm – 10 pm and Friday and Saturday from 5pm – 11pm, and Sunday 1 pm – 9 pm.  A special Opening Day menu will feature three types of deluxe hot dogs;  Phelps dog, All American dog and the Cincy dog, BLT sliders, sweet & spicy rated chicken wings, complimentary cracker jacks and kettle corn will be available along with favorite signature beverages at the bar.   The Red’s game will be streamed live on the terrace keeping all the guests up on the action.
