Located in the 50 Bowery hotel, this swanky rooftop bar on the 21st floor has some sky-high snooping on Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. Their new seasonal concept is “Royal Summer" at The Crown. Under the direction of Gates Otsuji (Narcissa, The Standard Hotel) a new cocktail menu includes drinks like "Royally Crushed" (vodka, crushed grapes, lime, pineau des charentes rouge); "Free Spirit-z" (prosecco, rhubarb, grapefruit essence, violet, cynar); and "Mint To Be Majestic" (white rum, apple, mint, lime, liqueur).
Inspired by the best of summer, the new food menu includes light fare designed for sharing with dishes such as a Classic Lobster Roll; Backyard Burgers (Pat LaFrieda sliders); and Fluke Crudo Tostada; along with delicious, picture-perfect desserts like Homemade Miso Creme-filled Doughnuts; and a Bubble Waffle Sundae piled high with endless toppings.
The Crown is one of the only places in the city that offers unobstructed views of both the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines - from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Empire State Building and One World Trade. The space has two different outdoor terraces and an indoor bar/lounge with plush seating, curated artwork and floor-to-ceiling windows.
