Loved visiting this bar, and the perk of this bar is the very warm gowns you are provided (when the weather is bad) if you go on the rooftop to take in the spectacular views of the Empire State. Very fun evening, lovely for both...More

Is there a minimum spend if you just want to come and have a few drinks on the rooftop on a night? What's it like Saturday/Sunday around 9pm? Too busy?
