    Do NOT attend the NYE event here, bought VIP passes and still had to wait in excess of 30 min to get served at the bar given they only had it staffed with 2 bartenders.

    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

    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!

    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!

    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

    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!

    The place all in all was entertaining the staff could rather be a little less stuck up. Except the waitress in VIP shes awesome!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Unless the guy downstairs was just being a jerk to me, you can't wear sneakers. So dress appropriately

    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....
