This was a recommendation from Lonely Planet.... and so glad we followed it up. Stunning night time views of Empire State Building, fab tunes and a great choice of reasonably priced drinks and snacks. Definitely recommend!

We visited on a Friday evening. We were very casual and it was fine. Some patrons were more dressed up and that was fine, too.
Hi! do you have any restrictions about the dress code? Can a man attend with sneakers for example? Thanks!!!

Hi is it possible to reserve a table or area in the roof top bar? If so how do we go about doing this? My parents are visiting in April and it's my mum's 60th so we wanted to book them somewhere a bit special! Thanks
