    Cocktails are $16-18 and the views are some of the best I've seen at a bar in Manhattan. Don't let it's proximity to Times Square scare you away. (Cool spot to bring an out of town visitor or a date).

    A swanky lounge of the chic Garment District that is perfect for all seasons, with incredibly amazing views of Midtown Manhattan. Drinks are unique, but the signature Frozé is a refreshing must

    Great venue with breathtaking view over Manhattan. Roof top open during late spring, summer, and early autumn time. Great for events.

    Amazing views of Midtown, including the Empire State Building and the New York Times Building. Make a reservation, if possible. #nyceats #nycdrinks

    Came here for my bday with 15+ friends. Called a few days earlier and made a reservation. None of my friends had a problem getting in. Crowd is kind of uppity but the staff is nice. Yummy drinks too!

    You can even manage to keep things semi-healthy (minus the drinking) if you step up to some jicama wraps stuffed with wasabi, wild salmon, and veggies. Read more

    You'll never look at Time Square/west midtown the same after visiting this modern bar/lounge. Everything looks amazing from up high. Small bites only, but make sure to get tuna crude & lobster taco.

    Loved the apple cider martini, the chardonnay (cheaper one is fine), the view is awesome but make a rez to get a lounge seat

    Fantastic cocktails with friendly attentive staff in a chic, industrial, lounge style setting! Surprisingly, not as expensive as expected

    An astounding view of New York skyline at 30th floor. Amazing classy ambient and space. Great cocktails. A good spot for that date.

    My go to place for cocktails in midtown. Seriously one of the best rooftops in the city. Not a party scene. Go after work!

    Swanky(ish) rooftop bar in a not so exclusive neighborhood. Views and vibe beat most other rooftop bars in Manhattan.

    Great views, very well made drinks, relaxed environment, great music...but not too loud for conversations. A+ for ambiance.

    The shrimp tacos, the sweet Brussels sprouts, the skylark blue and the lady furiosa are amazing! You should try. #Paulette

    Great cocktails and food. I still have no idea how to get a table since I'm usually here to meet someone or a party already gathered.

    It's a great view in summer. Too small and they reserve all tables which is annoying. Drinks are quality. Bathroom attended is a great guy.

    I recommend a reservation .... I went on a Monday and there were lounge areas off limits ... unless you just want to chill by the bar, which is great anyway. ;)

    Game nights go down that much easier thanks to crowd-pleasing beer towers and served-by-the-pitcher sangria, cosmos, and more.

    A bit expensive and staff might be a bit snobby but the outside patio has great views of midtown.

    Helpful hint: make a reservation or you'll be cast into never never land. Kinda ridiculous but great view.
