The staff was all so friendly. They even suggested other great places to check out after they closed. I'm excited to go back when the weather warms up, for the full outdoor experience.

Their food is delish! especially accompanied with a glass of Champagne. What a view! Looking out from the bar table, so to speak, you see the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building practically 'in front of you'. Enjoy!

The view is the only thing to recommend here. It’s a tiny area which can get crowded quickly. Staff and bar staff were surly. Try a different rooftop bar and save yourself the elevator time

This bar has a nice view of the Empire State Building. It has an open roof which can be closed if needed. Nice place to have a drink in the evening.
