    You should definitely try to make a reservation for a table because this place gets packed and fast!

    Greeeeat rooftop. Really friendly staff too. Most basic (in the worst sense of the bud light word) beer selection, regrettably. It's like an InBev showroom. There is more to life than Stella Artois.

    A decent spot to see a band, but beware the $30 minimum on cards!

    Cool setup with 3 different floors and vibes. Weird odor on the top floor is what scheved me from the get go. Bar tenders up there did not practice good service. Not cool for drinks at NYC premiums.

    This use to be our favorite location to go to on Fridays after work. The last floor has an open roof (on nice days) but you can't hear the music from there.

    Lounge upstairs and 2 more floors of dancing, music, and bars. Nice but it's thin and can get cramped.

    While it could do with a tad more lighting, the rooftop is lovely. Staff is friendly and attentive, and drinks are reasonably priced. Rooftop is covered and heated.
