Some bars with rooftop patios confine their specials indoors. But there's no need for thrifty patrons to stay inside when the weather's warm at downtown steak and sushi haven Seven. Its chic rooftop bar serves $3.75 wines and rails, $4 domestic bottles and discounted select martinis, sushi and apps from 4 to 6:30 p.m. weekdays.
