The Roof atop The Hotel Salem draws a post-work posse appreciative of the eagle’s eye views, along with the casual seating, cool cocktails, and Latin-inspired bar bites, ranging from creative tacos and ceviche to guacamole and rice bowls, all now available for take out. During the pandemic, the hotel’s parent company, Lark Hotels, created a GoFundMe campaign for furloughed company employees and hosted an auction for impacted employees.
