“wonderful nite on the Hudson”

Zulu Time Rooftop Lounge
Ranked #3 of 7 Restaurants in West Point
Price range: US$6 - US$21
Cuisines: American
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!

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

Went here for a food cocktails on a Thursday night. What a fantastic layout on the 2nd floor of the Thayer hotel with incredible views. Lots of seating (unless it's raining--then you're out of luck). Nice full service bar and friendly waiters. Prices are a tad expensive, but it is the Thayer. We liked it so much, we went back a second time. I can't imagine there is a better option for a "nice" bar in the immediate area. Highly recommend!

The Zulu lounge is a roof top bar and restaurant overlooking the Hudson River, located on the roof of the historic Thayer Hotel at West Point, NY. They serve about 5-7 draft beers, cocktails and wines. Prices are a little higher than average, but then you are paying for the location.
