The perfect way to both experience and escape New York City. Rooftop Lounge atop The Empire Hotel. Beautiful views of New York City and Lincoln Center.
Happy hour way too expensive
Bartenders are subpar, and offended if you ask about the advertised happy hour specials. Also quick to judge who "has money" or doesn't, and assume you want your tab closed if they deem you the latter
You will not find Serena and Blair here.
Chuck? Is that you?
At night you're not allowed to sit outside unless you're smoking.
Not bad prices considering it's a roof top bar. Get a glass of Malbec & sit under the sign. The inside doesn't have great views!
Great staff and one of the best views in the area
Fantastic views and Chuck Bass.
Getting up there was beyond frustrating and I was on the VIP list... It didn't help that it was a stupidly humid day! VIP area was open-ish bar. Great view past the sweaty faces and bodies!
Drinks out by the neon sign in summer is the best
Dancing and the Music
A little pricey but nothing beats the view
Great views of the city and the best bartenders!
I was a little disappointed with the view after reading so many rave. Bouncer (at 730 on a wednesday) put on an annoying act to check "capacity" when it was pretty light. Meh
Free jazz shows on Monday nights and go while drink prices are still discounted during happy hour
With beautiful views of NYC and Lincoln Center this rooftop is both comfortable and sexy. We love happy hour specials with $8 cocktails and live jazz music on Mondays!
Don't come here on a Tuesday night...ever

Elijah is the coolest bartender you'll ever meet
The place all in all was entertaining the staff could rather be a little less stuck up. Except the waitress in VIP shes awesome!
weekdays only. dress code: no denim.
Everytime I've been here its always a hassle at the door. if you're black be prepared to jump through hoops... if you must go it better be an event and you better come early likr before 10
If you're Black and don't look like a model come in small groups and really early (like b4 9pm). Also being on a list doesn't matter, you still might not get in!
A very friendly club with an amazing view!
Thanksgiving eve. No line. Come with a group of friends and it's a great place to chill.
If you like to have a good time, this is the place to go
Great rooftop party at 1am is this place packed with a rocking party crowd. A tip is to come here early so you don't have to wait in a long line or pay expensive coverage fee.
Not too shabby. Nice view with a dance floor and descent music. Be sure to dress up a bit to get in.
Love this rooftop. Great people, awesome scotch !!!
Staff is rude, and very unpleasant. Bought a table and received horrible service. Would not recommend or return.
Try the XOXO, the best gossip girl cocktail, XOXO
Get there early, secure seats and enjoy the cocktails and sunset
Expensive drinks in plastic cups. Welcome to New York!
They prevented my husband and I from going up because he was wearing (stylish) sneakers. It's against dress code and we couldn't attend a party because of it. Take your business elsewhere. Snobs.
Best damn kettle one dirty martini I've had in ages! On POINT!
Whoa, it took 30 minutes for the kitchen to send out an order of guacamole. Are you kidding me?
Unless the guy downstairs was just being a jerk to me, you can't wear sneakers. So dress appropriately
Entirely too pretentious. I felt obligated to punch everyone in there in the face.
saturday night party - 1 a.m.: no FC/DC - guys wearing sweaters, overcrowded, age 18-24, too loud music, night city view - nothing gorgeous, line to checkroom from the entrance....
Cheesy, but nice views, good live music.
Chill after work, or attend a great party here. Located on the 12th floor of this luxury hotel. Fantastic views of Lincoln Center as well as the Broadway & Columbus Avenue. Monday night jazz a must.
Sit under the huge neon sign and enjoy the view! p.s. The beef sliders are really good. They come with seasoned fries.
The kind of place you go to get classy date raped.
Don't bother going on any night but a Monday. Douchebag staff, douchebag crowd. Forget it.
Go on a Thursday night when they do there after work special 5 beer and 5 wine real nice lots of bougie people but then at night a Spanish crowd comes in the music gets better and the food not bad
THE EMPIRE HOTEL ROOFTOP !!! WOW ~
