If you like rooftop lounges, place this on your must visit list. The views of the Hudson River, NJ, and NYC are spectacular! We went in the early evening, but imagine the night time views are equally impressive. A well-dressed crowed made up of primarily...More

Great spot to see the sunset and NY skyline come to life - outside heaters and rugs to keep you warm . Amazing views - what a fantastic skyline

I booked the Kimpton hotel for my birthday trip because of this bar and I was not disappointed. Beautiful views and friendly staff. Three drinks and two snacks came to $66 before tip and for me, it was well worth it.

We found this place by coincidence – we were looking for a rooftop bar in Midtown – and we were not disappointed! Spectacular views, good choice of cocktails and tasty nibbles. There is also an open terrace with comfortable sofas and a shallow pond... And...More

Not sure, but I think you can find those details online. I went there late in night, I had just one Long island cocktail, and the bar tender made it crazy strong. I was happy with just 1 drink for the whole evening. The... More
