A bi-level deck dotted with ivy walls makes for a more sophisticated rooftop bar scene at the Mondrian. Been there, seen it, you say? This summer season, street artist Thank You X breathes new life into the upscale terrace, with a freshly-painted mural to be unveiled at the opening Summer Night Swim party. Don’t come looking for a rowdy, antics-filled free-for-all. Instead, the Skybar offers a relaxing reprieve from the street-level hustle stories below, and seemingly worlds away. Take in a 360-degree view of the city lights, cozy up to international business travelers on oversized daybeds or take a leisurely dip in the heated pool as resident DJ with supermodel-good-looks Kristina Kova kicks out hypnotic mixes. No matter what your MO, you may as well do it with a mojito in hand—the Skybar still kicks out its famous fruit-infused versions in watermelon, mango and more.
