    Cocktails are strong ($16, but basically two $8 cocktails' worth strong) and the company is handsome as all hell. Read more

    This spot is a solid date spot and under appreciated for a sat/Sunday day time spot. Great views of course; however, a ton of turnover on staff.

    Not sure what all the hype is...overpriced mediocre drinks. Do NOT get the Mr. Purple cocktail. It's a premixed cranberry/sugary letdown. Views are nice so maybe just take a pic and leave

    Drinks are fine but overpriced. What you're really here for is the view. Rooftop bar around mostly short buildings — best NYC sunsets I've seen. Worth the $16 price of admission for a cocktail here.

    The bottled sparkling negroni sounds so promising, but is a little too bitter. The Mr. Purple, on the other hand, kicks off a flavour party in your mouth and finishes very smooth.
