    The Press Lounge has some of the exceptional views Manhattan has to offer. Not loud, not rowdy and not over crowded. One of the best lounges in NYC to spend a summer night with a lovely drink in hand

    Here, you'll find no DJs, and no sloppy folk: Instead, there are twinkling lights, fire pits, artisanal cocktails, and unobstructed panoramas to help you revel in big city beauty. Read more

    One of my favorite rooftop bars in NYC. The drinks are pricey, but the view of the city and NJ is really unbelievable. I like coming here in the middle of the week or on Sundays – it's less crowded.

    Amazing views over Manhattan! Prices are not the lowest but the place is totally worth a visit, especially during sunset 😊

    Beautiful views and free entry. Weekend line starts forming around 10pm. Head here around 9pm and get yourself chairs facing the city next to the pool. Waitresses come around to take drink orders.

    . The rooftop area is so huge and even if it is crowded you are able to find a place to relax with your friends. The view from the lounge is amazing!!!

    Great view, good drinks. Prices are a little high and it bugs me that the bartenders expect a 20 percent tip on cocktails served at the bar.'s a rooftop so, I guess ill pay for the skyline.

    ALWAYS call before showing up to make sure it's not closed for a private party. Then arrive (following the dress code) when they open to score the best seats and views. Seriously, 5pm is too late.

    Had our company holiday party here. Amazing views and high quality drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Can't comment on the music though because one of my coworkers DJ'ed for the night instead of their usual.

    Sexy!!! Place a where the music is low the drink prices are high. but so many rooftops in the city but usually blocked by a bigger building this had a gorgeous view. Gorgeous people, strong drinks

    Great rooftop around the midtown area. I actually thought the view at night from there was better than from the Top of the Rock, as you have a great skyline posing for you!

    Relaxing rooftop lounge with great views of Midtown; Very polite staff and diverse crowd; line can get quite long around midnight on summer nights, so plan accordingly

    Come for the view. The (pre-poured) cocktails are just a bonus. If you must, order only Classic Beauty (rum with passion fruit) or anything out of a bottle.

    Get ready to spend $17 on a mediocre-tasting cocktail or $11 on a beer. The view is great though, and the place is much less crowded than other rooftop lounges. Go for a drink and the view.

    Excellent views if not the best in the city. Recommend going on a slower night, staff is extra nice and enough seating to enjoy this beautiful place.

    Order La's the perfect margarita for the fall- spiced pear and cinnamon. Plastic glasses make ordering wine not so fun. Great views but very quiet after work.

    Fantastic, unobstructed 360 views of Manhattan. Good happy hour. One of the best rooftops to watch a sunset over the Hudson.

    Great views and good cocktails. Great place to have a drink before dinner at Print. Take your cocktail with you to dinner.

    It's a nice rooftop but I wouldn't want to stay here long nor did a lot of people who wanted to have a good time. The drinks are expensive though. And don't go on Saturday too crowded.

    Gorgeous views of the skyline with comfy couches. Comes with blankets when it gets chilly, though they oddly don't serve warm drinks.

    Pricey drinks are a fair exchange for the best view of Manhattan right in Manhattan.

    Hotel rooftop that is BEAUTIFUL! It is about 12 floors up. It has a view of the west side/Hudson River. Drinks are pricey ($15-20). Not a huge place but just enough space and classy.

    There is no parapet! or well waist high wall built out of brick, it's a low glass wall, so the views make you feel like are floating into the nyc skyline!

    It's a good place to be just for the views. Drinks and music, meh not that great ! So if you are one of those who are more inclined towards the drinks . You will be slightly disappointed . Cheers !

    Discrimination. The door guy looked at my belly (I'm pregnant) and said he couldn't let us in because I was wearing flip flops. Watched him let him about 7 girls behind us all wearing flip flops.
