Clever concept. How about adding a few windows in the buildings?

%0D*Hey oc, I tried that but it effected the scalability :(

Hmm, good point. What about a dome top on one or something of that nature? Even so, it's still pretty neat.

What about a moon behind the buildings?

It's a nice, simple logo but I would definitely try a different variety of rooftop shapes. They're all flat at the moment. Throw in a couple of triangle shapes or something, maybe an antenna or two. The type could use some more development as well. Good concept overall.

nice concept. I think does not need details like the shadows or shines

very nice. Perhaps making the buildings slightly more angular would make them stand out more. Great concept though. :)

Very clever. The only other concept I could even come up with is a skyline of wine bottles, but this is much better.

I have to disagree with the addition of the rooftop shapes. I think it was stronger without the chimneys and antennas and such. Perhaps if you just angled the rooftops to show some perspective, but don't add so much fine detail that would get lost in small scales. Also, a not on your type: perhaps its an optical illusion, but the word 'CITY' seems more loosely kerned than the word 'DRINKING'. Just add some more space in there and I think it will really shine. Good work!

i think adding windows will add alot. Yes scaling the image down may loose some of the windows but with just White windows you will be able to see it slightly to give the buildings that little extra something.. BUT rockin concept i love the look and feel, makes me want to grab a drink
