Drink in a bubble on New York’s highest rooftop bar

Santa knows the deal—up on a rooftop is the place to be this winter. At New York’s highest rooftop bar, Bar 54 at the Hyatt Centric Times Square, you can once again hang out in igloo-like bubbles on the roof. They’re now open for the season, so if you’re determined to partake in outdoor drinking even in below-freezing temps, just head on over.


The two bubbles are open now through March 31. A reservation isn’t required to visit, though you can reserve a private table inside one if you’d like. You’ll have access to the bar’s full menu of food and house-made cocktails, and you get stunning views of the Chrysler Building and Manhattan. 


Oh, and these should not be confused with the rooftop igloos at 230 Fifth, which have also been filling up our Instagram feeds.

My friend and I visited back in February, we had easy access into the exterior bubble and were quickly served our drinks! I loved my cocktail and the whole atmosphere just made it a perfect winter night (our first date). I remember him saying afterwards that he was impressed that I brought him to such a cool place. I do have to warn you as prices are a little high but they are totally worth it! You just can't replace the breathtaking views of the heart of Times Square! I took my mom and brother on my second visit to the rooftop bar. Our female server wasn't very friendly and they wouldn't allow us to have lunch even after having given us a great siting spot as my brother was 18 years old and the adjacent area had a bar in it! I'm actually glad about it; just the hamburger was $25... This is one of the most elegant rooftop bars I have been to! It might be great for a special night after a Broadway show/ to Impress visitors or just to take your special someone on a one of a kind night out!
