    The Bitches Say: B-. Our brunch selections were good and the cocktails were very tasty and unique. We only wish Upstairs had an open-roof policy on nice days so we could have enjoyed dining outdoors. Read more

    Had a small birthday party here. The hosts and servers were gorgeous and couldn't have been more accommodating. The DJ was excellent. Exceptional views. The hors d'oeuvres were great.

    Amazing view and solid DJ/Dancing late night. Jordana and the waitstaff did a great job for my girlfriends birthday, even with a packed house. Worth checking out and having a good time for sure!

    Good place, with facecontrol and checking your id, the music is a bit too loud if you want smth for a relax and fancy night other then that all is really good

    Great midtown views and a nice retractable roof. Smoking area has more casual seating and service. The elevator to reach the rooftop is almost hidden.

    Upstairs frequently hosts private events, and thus closes to the public. It’s always smart to call ahead to make sure they’re open before you make the trip. Read more

    Come have a rocking brunch! Brunch takes a twist with a DJ, $24 truffled duck-egg toast and complimentary Bloody Marys or mimosas with most entrees.

    Awesome spot to have a party/gathering. Good view of NYC Skyline (including Chrysler Building). Make sure to dress classy.

    A 4,000-square-foot lounge on the rooftop of the hotel offers a grub menu of snacks like seared steak tartare, truffled mac & cheese, and lamb lollipops alongside a full bar. Read more

    We love this rooftop lounge for its views, sure: but the spiced duckcigars” with pomegranate dipping sauce are the real reason we keep going back.

    Just concluded an annual cocktail party here! Wow. What a great venue-- beautiful view, delicious food, Prosecco on the open bar list. Highly recommend.

    Great outdoor / rooftop space. Drinks are a bit pricey but you are paying for the experience and the great view of midtown.

    Scenic view and beautiful interior. A wide choice of cocktails, good but too pricey. The waitress was grumpy

    Loved the ambience and the view. It also has a really cosy patio. Great place for dates and drinks.

    Nice rooftop bar. Ladies, don't let the "manliest drink alive" description deter you. The "rum service" cocktail is really good. My only complaint is the $16 cocktail price.

    Enjoy libations like the Knob Creek/dry vermouth/Maraschino Midtown Manhattan at the spectacular main bar, which's topped with blue Belgian marble and wrapped in LED-backlit rubbed bronze lattice work Read more

    Thrillist presents Dell Discoveries: Namedrop Dell & Thrillist and you’ll get the citrus-n-cinnamon North Star Cocktail for $10 instead of the normal $16 -- all day, every day. (Through Dec. 31st)

    One of the few rooftop bars you can show up with a huge crew and not have to wait. Great views of Chrysler building. But agree with others- overpriced.

    One of my favorites in the city. It's generally not as crowded and a good place for a first date

    There is style here but little substance: the Manhattan (bulleit and sticky maraschino) is NOT great, and the version at NOIR (couple of doors east) is dimensionally better.

    Good service, decent view, though much too pricey - there are other rooftop options where the view is exceptional and totally worth paying for..

    Classy atmosphere and amazing views of the Chrysler building, when the roof is open. We found the drinks to be too expensive and the music not so good.

    Management will run this place into the ground. Telling 100 people from a wedding party they can't sit at a table after the bride has 50 rooms reserved?? Your roof isn't that cool- worst.EVAR!!!

    Decent rooftop bar to bring out-of-towners to take in the view, but (overpriced) cocktails aren't anything to write home about

    Don't wear sneakers or they'll turn their re-done nose up at you. Neat bar but snooty atmosphere and expensive drinks. It's overcrowded too.

    Terrible customer service. Did not honor the special, claimed they had no idea how it got there. If they wanted us to come back, they could have done the right thing. Never. Again.
