The view and vibe alone is worth a visit. I did not deep dive the menu but was unimpressed with my drink - then again, I'm spoiled by the speakeasies and higher end bars that i love so much... and I only had one drink, I froze my butt off despite the heaters. I'm also from the South so take that with a grain of salt too.

This place is my favorite NYC rooftop. There is indoor/outdoor space and gorgeous east, south and west views. The cocktails are tasty, but pricey. It can get crowded, so either make a rez or get there early :) This place is open year round!!

Great place. That rooftop view is sick. The crowd is chic. This place was packed. Had an excellent time. I can't wait to go back.

This place is douchebag central. The doorman and the staff are just awful. There are several other places you can go - avoid this one. Yuck!

We had one of the most horrific experience right at the door of this ultra low stupid rooftop bar. The doorman was a brainless monkey who had no shame and respect for how to treat customers. He looked at us and asked if we're guests, to which we said No and only guests are allowed. When I told him that the hotel policy doesn't say so, he raised his voice in a condescending manner that yes non guests are not allowed after 9 pm which was a complete lie. Although at that point, I had no interest in checking it out but didn't want to threw in the towel and asked the doorman for the manager to show us the hotel bar policy. He said, the manager don't work at this hotel on Fridays. Please DO NOT WASTE your time here. This is hands down the worst place I have ever been to.

Elegant rooftop pool bar, with a slightly judge crowd Open to the public during the earlier hours of the day, this pool is not heated so you should go when it is warmer outside. The views of downtown are spectacular and the drinks are strong. The food is not worth it in price or quality, and the crowd is more welcoming during the day as opposed to in the evening. Also, not a lot of dancing.

The bar opens at 5 pm, and gets filled up pretty quickly on weekends. The drinks are decent, albeit a bit pricey, but I don't really come here just for the drink. The main draw here is the spectacular view. The bar is surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling windows - to the south you can see the World Trade Center, to the west you get the Jersey City downtown skyline, and to the north you can see both the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. Additionally they have an outdoor mini pool area on the southern patio. I'd love to pay a visit here again in summer days.

This place offers impeccable views, but it always a scene. You have to be in the mood and dressed to kill to fit in with the crowds that frequent this rooftop. It is definitely worth checking out at least once on a clear summer night at sunset.
