We loved it! On the 16th Floor of the Ink 48 hotel but nothing to do with the hotel, is The Press Lounge, so you don't have to stay at the hotel. Dress up, go early and drink very expensive cocktails (2 diet cokes were...More

Fabulous views and great drinks! Only downside is the music was really loud, and we could hear it from our room after we went to bed.

Roof top bar on the 16th floor, fabulous view of NYC and Jersey city/Hoboken over the hudson river. fantistic place to see the sunset, sipping drinks. Pricy drinks but the view and the atmosphere is worth the experience.

Fabulous city views. Expensive, but typically so, drinks. Uncomfortable seating. Great place for a cocktail.

"Wow" is what you'll say about the view in every direction, but it's also what you'll say about the drink prices. Possibly the best Cosmopolitan I've ever had, though, which eased the pain. I was fortunate that it wasn't closed for a private party when...More

We went up to the Press Lounge on the rooftop of the Kimpton Ink 48 at 4:00 pm. We were staying at the hotel, but because my daughter was not 21 (20), we could only stay for the first hour. I think it was amazing...More

At the entrance before entering the elevator a guard of the press lounge asked for our ID. So knowing the US rules that a person is allowed to drink at 21 yo I believe you can't enter with younger person than 21. And from... More
