It’ll take you a while to get into this massive rooftop bar—not because of the door policy, but because of its popularity. Take in views of the Empire State, MetLife and Chrysler Buildings under shady umbrellas for sunny days, and near space heaters for chilly nights. Tuck into a $29 brunch buffet from 10am–4pm on the weekends, and in winter, gather in pop-up igloos to protect your party outfit from the elements.

In the winter: If I am going to be cold, then I want to be cold with a spiked hot cocoa in hand drinking inside an igloo at 230 Fifth. Try to get to the rooftop earlier so that you can grab a spot inside the igloos. If you're looking for a place to get a great instagram pic, stay festive, get tipsy, cuddle up in red robes and impress visiting family and friends, then this is your place!
This bar has a beautiful view, in both winter and summer! The igloos in the winter provide such a unique experience, that I would recommend trying it at least once. The downside to this bar is the crowds, and drink prices. I would say go more for the experience, and less for the drink quality..
You can't deny that this is a bit of a touristy spot, but when you get up there and the see the views of the city you understand exactly why everyone flocks there. I'd also say that it's a big enough space that it never feels too hectic and often all the people actually make for a great atmosphere. A decent cocktail menu of all the classics and an easy bar menu of light snacks means you can stay for a quick drink and take in the view, or settle in for the evening. Make sure you head round to the far left hand side up on the decking as you can also see the One World Trade tower and take in the sunset from there too, which sets over the Hudson River. A great spot to take friends, dates and parents! That view never gets old.

Excellent way to go on a awesome night, even if you have to delay ten minutes in line. The opinions of the town are awesome, such as the view of the Business State building. There are equivalent parts of beautiful individuals vs individuals who look/dress culturally uncomfortable and out of position. There are a lot of locations to sit, take a position or flow and 3 associated with sparkling wine cost $50....guess they might be making up for no cover charge. All in all an excellent way to individuals watch, consume and b. s. with guests.
