Restaurateur Lee Mikles has (1) an enclosed roof deck with a lovely view and (2) a fun imagination.
He’s turned Grain Craft Bar + Kitchen in Kennett Square into the Aloha Room, a tiki bar, for the foreseeable future.

Cheesy fun? Sure.
There’s a mural that’s perfect for Instagram photos. TVs play clips of old movies and TV shows with tropical themes.
The dedicated menu goes all out, too, with a tropical edge.
