3 Ways to Gain Exclusive Access

Posted: April 17, 2017

The sun is shining and the calm breeze fills the air with the sweet smells of spring flowers that line the streets of Downtown Rapid City. We are on our way to the Starbucks at Hotel Alex Johnson for our iced coffee and a break from the busy workday.

Grabbing our coffee, we head into the hotel lobby. Curiously, we ask about visiting the exclusive bar on the 10th and 11th floor. We’ve heard all about Vertex Sky Bar from mutual friends who have snapped breathtaking pictures of the view. With the weather as nice as it is, we figured today would be the perfect day to see this view for ourselves.

The front desk associate smiled and asked what she could assist with. We told her we would like to visit Vertex but mentioned we didn’t have a membership. Happily, she informed us that we could buy a one-day pass and enjoy the Vertex experience just like a member could.

Not only did we see the entire panoramic view of Rapid City but the bar décor was beautifully elegant. The 1920’s inspired wall art and color combination created an atmosphere of sophistication and relaxation.

We sipped on our refreshing Spring Drink Specials while we basked in the sunny spring weather on the 11th floor patio. Dinner was deliciously perfect and the staff was respectfully accommodating.

At the end of our experience, we asked the front desk associate how soon we could visit again. Did we need to purchase a day pass every time we wanted to visit Vertex? 

She explained three ways we could enjoy the Vertex experience like an exclusive member:

  • Sign up for Vertex’s annual membership 
  • Purchase a day pass at the hotel front desk
  • Book your stay at the Hotel Alex Johnson and have free, unlimited access for you and your guests.
