This rooftop lounge has beautiful views at night, along with comfortable cushion style seating and a small table. Think patio style. The drinks come quickly as the bar is on the rooftop and they often have special events here. Especially, on summer nights. The food...More

This is a place to come for the view and the experience. Food is average and the drinks costly, but there are not many options locally. This is about as good as it gets around the military academy.

Relax in style as you enjoy unmatched vistas from the only New York rooftop bar overlooking the Hudson River between Manhattan and Albany. Zulu Time Rooftop Bar & Lounge is located at The Thayer Hotel, just inside of the Thayer Gate on West Point (don’t worry, you only need a valid driver’s license to get access to this exclusive location). Complimentary valet awaits patrons upon arrival, along with stunning Hudson River Views, cool beverages, and delicious culinary creations prepared by Executive Chef Chris Hettinger, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and his team. Established in 1884, "Zulu Time" (commonly referred to as Greenwich Mean Time- GMT) is an absolute time reference that doesn't change with the season or location. In the military, worldwide operations are coordinated in relation to ZULU TIME – which is the common denominator, and something that everyone can rely on. Set your clock to the party you can rely on: ZULU TIME!
