Bar America offers three individual floors and balconies to capture the photo of your dreams. Each floor is decorated to reflect a different era in time and offers an abundance of photo opportunity.  Our 2nd floor, dedicated to the iconic Marilyn Monroe, is perfect for the ladies, while our men's lounge area, located on the third floor, gives that masculine feel for the gentlemen.
