Visit here before dinner at MacArthur's Drinks and appetizers are good. But the view of the Hudson, high above the river, is breathtaking.

Comfortable sofa seating under large umbrellas compliment the drinks from the easily accessible bar. "Bar" food is available until an hour before closing. Happy hour specials. If it's still light out, a great view of the river.

Description
Relax in style as you enjoy unmatched vistas from the only New York rooftop bar overlooking the Hudson River between Manhattan and Albany. Zulu Time Rooftop Bar & Lounge is located at The Thayer Hotel, just inside of the Thayer Gate on West Point (don’t worry, you only need a valid driver’s license to get access to this exclusive location). Complimentary valet awaits patrons upon arrival, along with stunning Hudson River Views, cool beverages, and delicious culinary creations prepared by Executive Chef Chris Hettinger, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and his team. Established in 1884, "Zulu Time" (commonly referred to as Greenwich Mean Time- GMT) is an absolute time reference that doesn't change with the season or location. In the military, worldwide operations are coordinated in relation to ZULU TIME – which is the common denominator, and something that everyone can rely on. Set your clock to the party you can rely on: ZULU TIME!
