    Gorgeous views, ample bars so you don't have to go back inside to grab drinks once you get settled. Great place to hang pre or post show at Webster Hall or Irving Plaza nearby.

    One of Manhattan's best kept secrets ! This is a must to come here and do it an hour before the light fades. That way you get superb photos of day & night. Good and service superb. Good prices too

    Get there early to take in the heavenly views of Manhattan while sipping on your favorite cocktail. Eventually, the masses will arrive and you’ll be fighting to keep your spot.

    Cold weather rooftop fun. The amazing view of the Empire and the red Snuggies make it a perfect spot for a ton of selfies. The bar line goes fast and they have Brooklyn Lager on tap. Do it!

    Most amazing views of NYC! Drink & food menu + outside tables & bar overlooking the Empire State Building. Outerwear robes & outside heating provided in winter. Free admission. Button downs required.

    Don't seek a Bloody Mary after brunch hours on a Sunday. The persecution of a Bloody Mary being perceived as a morning only drink must stop and I will do my best to rectify this one review at a time.

    This yuppie haven offers outdoor spaces on two levels, cocktails and bottle service, and a comfort food menu that runs to guacamole, wontons, and a prime rib cheesesteak sandwich. Read more

    If you come here during Friday or Saturday primetime, get ready for popped collars and pick-up artists. Pretentious as hell. But the views and decor can't be beat, so come for a 5-8p cocktail instead.

    Get there EARLY! 1 hour line to enter. Good thing there is NO COVER but it is pricey… The view from the top is just outstanding.

    You should get here before sunset so you may see the view at daytime, in the evening and the magnificent sunset. Very crowded place. Definitely worth to go.

    very atmospheric with great view to the skyscrapers around. may be a bit overcrouded though. the gin cucumber mojito is one of the best mojitos i've ever had.

    Great place to bring people who you want to impress. Fast service. If you get cold, get the red ropes.The place is there for the view! Average price. Dream away~

    Coming from Miami, I was shocked at the beer prices, especially for non micro brewery beer. Regardless the ambiance is great, the view amazing, stellas at $8.

    Amazing view of city sights, $29 all you can eat brunch on Sundays! So many spots to sit at this rooftop bar and they have strong drinks!

    Located so close to Flatiron, perfect for grabbing a cocktail after work and meeting many locals as well as foreigners. One of the top views of Midtown. Grab their red cloth of feeling chilly outside

    Very cool lounge with a chill atmosphere and amazing rooftop view of the city and Empire State Building- they even provide robes for the roof and heating lamps! Great date night spot.

    One of the biggest rooftop bars with one the very best views of Midtown. Decor could be updated - it has the right amount of cheesiness (IMHO!). Think old-town Vegas meets NYC circa 1980.

    No cover, coat check and awesome views. Music is top 40, but can be hot or miss. Love rooftop with robes, heat lamps and hot drinks!

    Beautiful spacious rooftop. After 930 you have to start buying bottles. If you don't they won't let you stay and tell you someone else bought your table and kick you out.

    The view is definitely awesome. They have the igloos to accommodate visitors for free and they lend coats too! Even though its really cold out in the roof, they have heaters too!

    230 boasts one of the city's most 'lavish' and amazing vistas. Don't just take our word for it! Malaysian Shrimp Salad is to die for!! It's grilled pork, scallion, green mango and papaya. It's delish!

    No cover. Bartenders are generous with the pours. Heated lamps and igloos make the rooftop comfortable in the winter. They also provide robes for outside.

    The best views of the city. Huge outdoor patio with lots of beautiful people. There are many patio bars so you don't have to go inside to get a drink. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef

    Scenic view of the Empire State Building. During summer try coming before 7pm as rooftop gets very crowded. Do try their cucumber mojito! They have light snacks available too.

    Many years ago, this place was trendy, but no longer. It smells bad. Though, to its credit, it has one of the best rooftop views of the Manhattan skyline.

    Amazing Rooftop bar with fantastic views of the NYC skyline. Upscale decor, lots of patio bars and beautiful people. One con: Beer selection is limited to Amstel, Heineken, Stella and one other beer.

    Great views. Make sure you dress warm if it's brisk outside. They have blankets to get under, but still it's quite chilly. That said, get there just before sunset and watch the city change.

    Go here for brunch and enjoy the cool, open air and scenic Manhattan skyline from the rooftop. Come back at night for the lively crowd. The drinks are expensive but the atmosphere can be electric.

    Wonderful skyline views with some downstairs large window seating for the nastier weather. You have your choice of dinning or seat yourself bar only.

    No cover, spectacular view on rooftop, heated lamps kept us warm enough sans jackets (in late October), music is decent downstairs. A few good looking men. Friendly atmosphere. LOVED this place!

    Best time to go here is sunset. Have a drink and watch the Empire State Building and the NY skyline while the light is changing slowly.

    One of the best rooftop of NY with an amazing view of the Empire State Building. Try it during the day and by night, both views are very different

    One of the best views of the city! Huge outdoor patio with lots of beautiful people! But look out for the girl that wants your money in the form of a big tip, after they serviced you! ;)

    What a spectacular place to have a stylish NYC night out. The roof deck of this bar is ENORMOUS and worth it for the views you have a direct view of the empire state building. I recommend you sit on

    Wear a cool hat and enjoy this awesome rooftop bar. Best view of the Empire in the city. Can't wait to try it in the winter. I need to see New Yorkers wearing Snuggies for myself.

    Largest rooftop bar in New York City. Spectacular head-on look at the Empire State, Chrysler, NYLife ,and Met Life buildings. Off into the distance, you can see the Statue of Liberty.Open year-round.

    This place is awesome until 9pm sharp, when the vibe turns from "oh yeah sit wherever and enjoy snuggies under the heatlamps" to "fuck you, give us $500 or freeze."

    Aside from the killer view, the best part about this place was the traffic jam that occurs when everyone stops at the rooftop entrance to take their official Instagram of the skyline.

    I liked this rooftop bar! Yes, the drinks are expensive and the service isn't that great. But the view was amazing and on cold days they have heaters and fleece snuggies.
