“Great night spot”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

The Zuli Rooftop Lounge sits above the majestic Hudson River on the 2nd floor of The Thayer Hotel. Perfect for a quick drink, visit with friends, dancing etc. Noise level is perfect for both chatting and listening to music. Service was excellent. Highly recommend!

“Not my kind of place ...”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Just doesn't seem to fit the 'Thayer' theme. But, to each their own I guess. It seems to be a good idea, but the 2 nights we were there it was empty. And, that was a 'homecoming' weekend. It's more fitting for a 21-29 crowd that wants loud music and crazy drinks. Just doesn't fit - IMHO.

“Okay place to eat”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Zulu time is located on the rooftop terrace of the Thayer Hotel. We ate there 3 different times during our stay. It has amazing views of the river. The seating is somewhat awkward, the chairs and cushions were soiled from being out in the elements, some were even quite wet. This made it difficult to sit down, but it didn't seem to bother anyone working there. No one made an effort to bring a towel or offer to get dry cushions. Seemed kinda off. That was the first problem we encountered. The second was their demand for a credit card before taking any orders. While I don't mind allowing a bar to swipe my card to run a tab, they actually kept my credit card for the entire time we were there. This seemed off, as we were registered guests of the hotel. When I asked why they needed it, the server stated that it was managements rule and she didn't really know why. I found this practice offensive, no other way to state it. Finally, each time we were there, the place seemed to be horribly understaffed. The servers did their best to keep up, but service was very slow. One other gripe, some customers were able to order and receive drinks from the bar that we were told were not served at Zulu. How come?
Again, this could be a very lovely place, if some more time and effort were put into the place by hotel management. The potential is there, it could be a very nice place to eat. Right now, it's just a bar with very loud music and mouths. Not someplace I would recommend.

“Friday night great, Saturday night... kind of lame”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Friday night at the bar was a lot of fun with a DJ who claims to be the "Most Honest DJ you will ever meet"... not sure what that means but sounds serious. Anyway, Saturday, the "most honest DJ" is not employed and the bar plays the radio pretty quietly; not as fun.

Drinks are priced fairly. No bugs. Win.
