I have been to Delaire Sky Lounge many times over the past several years. It had a nice atmosphere and some good food and drinks. And it was a nice place to go on a romantic date or for a special occasion like a birthday. Also, it had retractable awnings to allow diners to enjoy the open air and view, regardless of the weather.

Delaire Sky Lounge was located in the Rio Sur mall/building, which is across the street from Oviedo mall in El Poblado. Delaire was on the seventh floor of the building.
In this building the elevators are in the back. After exiting the elevator on the seventh floor, you went through a shared entrance with the Sixttina Discoteca and go up some stairs to the restaurant.
The nearest Medellín metro station is Aquacatala on Line A, which is about a 15-minute walk from the Rio Sur.

The Bottom Line: Delaire Sky Lounge: Dining and Drinks with a View in Medellín
Delaire Sky Lounge was a good place to go on a romantic date with the nice views. And it had some good food and a fairly extensive bar. So, it was a popular place not just for dates.
Also, on a Friday or Saturday night, you could make a night of it and have dinner and drinks at Delaire before going down the stairs to dance at Sixttina.
In addition, Delaire got busy, particularly on the weekends. But you could make reservations.
