    The perfect rooftop escape that is still manages to be a well-kept secret. On the 14th floor of the La Quinta hotel serving outdoor drinks and views of the Empire State Building.

    A bit of a secret this one for a roof top bar with close up views of the Empire State. Take the lift in the hotel to the top floor. The hotel is in K-town, so you'll feel relatively calm and at home.

    Cool rooftop in Koreatown that is very not Korean. A little small and there is a long line for the bar. You'll strain your neck looking up at the Empire State Building.

    nice rooftop bar right in the heart of korea town, can get a little packed but can't beat the view of the Empire State Building

    Want the view? Go around the block on 33rd and crane your neck back look straight up the side of the Empire State building from the street you have the same view. The deck is boxed in by wooden walls.

    The best part of this place is that you have to go through the lobby of a La Quinta Inn in Korea Town to get to it. Just hit the top floor on the elevator, and then BAM rooftop bar.

    Great rooftop bar right under the ESB. Wasn't too crowded when I went during a weekend, and they've also got drink specials for check-ins.

    Beautiful Rooftop bar in the heart of midtown, with an amazing view of the Empire State Building. Ask for Frank the owner, he's the nicest guy.

    Hidden rooftop bar in the La Quinta hotel. A little pricy but a gorgeous view of the Empire State Building

    Beautiful rooftop view of the Empire State Building. A bit too pricey for my taste.

    I love outdoor bars like this, but unfortunately they are ok with smoking and it's small enough that you really can't hide from 1-2 smokers.

    The bar doesn't open until 5:30pm in case you're a daytime scenic lush like me and trying to go at 3pm on a Sunday.

    Nice hidden, small rooftop directly under the Empire State Building. Free jazz on Sunday night!

    Really like this "hidden" (off-the-grid) roof bar. Pleasant employees, a-little-too-hip clientele, unique view.

    Small bar on the roof top. Bartender is very generous on alcohol in cocktails.

    Place is cool, drinks are reasonable, bartenders are eh (a couple of them). Heat lamps outside in the winter.

    The little gem in the K-Town, it's little tight but still good spot ?!!

    Small bar but nice if you can get a table. Not the best views but not bad and definitely a nice atmosphere.

    DO NOT GO HERE! This place is dingy and dirty and the one bathroom is filthy. Drinks aren't cheap and the staff is rude and nasty. Lame view as well. Go to the Metro on w 35th St, it's way better.

    It's a nice spot though the manager was rude to my friends- we left, confused & surprised at the treatment. I cannot recommend.

    Bar opens late. So no day drinking. No idea if they do jazz on Sunday anymore.
  • Jessica Hyunjoo K.
    You can see the Empire State Building from here. Really pretty at night time.

    Guess what? They don't honor foursquare deals. So nice of them to lie to you.
