Stopped in here on my birthday with two friends. It's a cool concept and theme - different from other places I've been around Manhattan. It's a rooftop so the views are great, the location is convenient, and the apps we tried were good. Drinks are...More

A couple of fun twists to a rooftop bar, carousel seating was cool for a bit, the mini-golf was very underwhelming and a little pointless. Drinks expensive but no more so than other rooftops. Not worth going out of your way for.

The bouncers are bit strict. Good thing, Adam (929 354 7877) helped us to get through. The drinks they’re serving are so awesome! Spinning tables, golf area, and the dance floor are just few reasons why I loved this place. Will definitely go out and...More

There were too many drunk and obnoxious people when we were there. The bouncers were not friendly either. Tho the manager seemed nice and greeted us.

Well, the place is undeniably pretty and trendy. The music is also good. And the french fries are amazing. But that’s pretty much it. Drinks are awfully prepared, they don’t even look good. We went as a party of five and we weren’t staying at...More
