Courtesy of the set designer responsible for Sex and the City, this rooftop bar features a retractable glass roof, making it an option year-round. Snag a seat on the plush, pillow-topped benches for a front-row seat to the glittering Empire State Building and expansive sunsets. Surrounded by palms, shrubs, and other greenery, the sky-high patio feels like a real escape from the city — especially with strawberry-basil daiquiris in hand.

When visiting I made it a stop in between rooftop bars and have to say I was totally pleased with the quality of service I received...The drink was amazing; intriguing yet very refreshing for an early fall night... The siting spots are limited but this rooftop is a cheeky place that will make your stay a very memorable one specially because of the views of the Empire State Building... It might be ideal for a first date as it has an inexplicable romantic atmosphere ;) CHEERS!


I can attribute a many great nights to this lovely rooftop bar. It's quite small and cozy so don't go in with a huge group. But it's great if you're looking for an intimate setting with a couple of close friends or coworkers. You can also impress out-of-towners with this cute spot. The turnover is quick so even if it's small, people usually just come and go. Drinks are what you would typically expect in terms of prices and taste.
