The landscape on the Empire State Building is amazing! However, the cocktails were awkward with way too much alcohol. Music was too loud. I really don’t recommend this bar for a drink!!

Small and intimate, stylish and hip rooftop bar with stunning views of the Empire State Building just a few blocks away. It has a retractable glass roof so unlike some rooftop bars the views can be enjoyed even in poor weather conditions.

At 50 dollars, you can see the exact same view with less tourists and less restrictions from a rooftop bar. Being that there were massive building works, and we paid 'sunset' price but no sunset I would say it is overpriced.

The trouble with NYC is that you are spoilt for choice. As bars goes it’s pleasant enough but there are much better places to get views of NYC.

It has a retractable glass roof so I assume so. It would be a wasted opportunity otherwise. We went in September at night and the view of the Empire State building was fantastic.
