Great view, and very relaxing place

We went to the Zulu lounge in the middle of the afternoon. It was very relaxing at that time of day, and we enjoyed the view. I ordered the sangria off of the menu, and, frankly, it was the worst drink I have every had. The wine was bitter, and it tasted like they just put fruit in the bottom... read more

I have been here a few times and the experience is generally positive. The appetizers are yummy, the drinks are decent but a bit spendy, and service is usually prompt. I wish they played the music later into the night on the weekends...it ends at 11:00.

The Zulu rooftop lounge is perfect for those warm summer nights to enjoy a drink and view overlooking the hudson.

A great place to have a cocktail and some conversation. When the leaves turn in the fall, the views should be even more magnificent.

Zulu Time was mobbed when we arrived, but we quickly found a table. It was soon apparent that they were understaffed for such a large crowd, but the servers were doing their best under very difficult circumstances. This resulted in over an hour wait for our food (salads & burgers) to come out. A complaint to the manager brought us... More

What a great time! Very neat place for a drink. On top of the Thayer (a gorgeous hotel) overlooking the Hudson. So much fun.

Atmosphere and drinks are great. Deck like seating and setting. During the Summer and nice warm weather you will feel at home here and the drinks are well made. Seating is limited so get there early.

Forget table service - stand in line at bar for drinks. Hungry? Order food, plan on waiting an hour or more for it to arrive. Staff seem capable but way understaffed. Great view; lousy service.

The Zulu has a beautiful view of the Hudson River valley and is part of the Thayer Hotel. We visited USMA in June between classes and the weekend crowd was lively and a mix of young USMA faculty and staff and alumni and their families. Weekend service was sporadic and drinks were fairly expensive. The food was typical bar food.... More
