Just in time for warmer climes, the tropical rooftop pop-up at the Sixty LES Hotel returns for the season, reimagined by New York designer Misha Kahn with oversize hand-blown lava lamps, palm-patterned banquettes and fruit-printed wallpaper. Operating through the end of September, the Tahitian-themed bar offers summery cocktails from the NoMad vet Ivo Diaz, including island classics (mai tais, frozen strawberry daiquiris) and original recipes like a Spicy Typhoon (tequila, fresh ginger, pineapple and lemon) and a Bamboo House (bourbon, Amaro CioCiaro, lemon and orange). Bar snacks skew Asian: shishito peppers with Okinawa sea salt, chicken wings with wasabi honey, and pork ribs with black vinegar and crispy rice.

Cool spot! Good for a drink or two if you want to sit and hang. Good for a large group. 


Who doesn't love a tropical oasis in the heart of the concrete jungle?  Located in the SixtyLES Hotel, Tiki Tabu has great music, ambiance and cocktails. Perfect for big groups, or a nice drink before a night out, you definitely want to stop here!  I hosted my birthday party here this past year, and the manager was extremely helpful.  The drinks are bit on the pricier side, but tasty, strong and served in tropical cups.  It packs up so get there on the earlier side to hold down a seat.  

Located in the SixtyLES hotel, this tiny rooftop bar packs a big punch. The ambiance is spot-on, with fern patterned couches, golden pineapple cups and pitchers and even bartenders in Hawaiian shirts. They didn't leave any stone unturned when it came to the decor. 

The drinks are strong, though expensive, like most rooftop bars in NYC and the views are no where near as spectacular as those at neighboring bar Mr. Purple. The crowd, however, is way more manageable and way less obnoxious, making it a good option for a more casual evening or a the spot to hit up on your way to some other, rowdier LES haunts. 

Don't come here looking for a cheap evening, but at least you get a strong drink, good buzz and decent views for your money. 


Love the idea of the Tiki Bar, but the place is WAY too small. It get's crazy corwded and it's hot, there's not enough seating and it's uncomfortable to stand around. The terrace is super nice, amazing views, and the drinks and snakcs are yummy. But the set up could use some work.

Don't drop the ball Tiki Tabu! It's still early on - i'm sure they will figure it out
