We wanted a relaxing place to end our evening so we wandered here to unwind and enjoy our last evening in NYC. The drinks are pricey, but well worth it to enjoy the amazing views of the city.

Casual smart is good. Jeans would be fine with a nice shirt. Shoes- anything goes I guess now-a-days. Wait until you see the views! Have fun...
