We came here a couple of years back and loved it. We wanted to go back , despite advice against it from local friends, we wished later we had listened to them. It has gone so downmarket. The worst part was the "welcome" at the door upstairs, a gaggle of disinterested, over made up women who showed no interest in... More

Not a nice experience at all... We went to this place to check out the sunset from the terrace as it was recommended by some friends as a must see in our trip to NY. The rooftop side where this was possible to see was closed so we've stayed in the other side, with NO sun. Starting bad but going... More

We happened upon this "rooftop garden" when we were gathering on our first night in NYC... and how amazing it was! The views of the city are amazing, the atmosphere on the rooftop was incredible, and the company we kept was the best of all! Quirky furnishings inside made for fun photo ops when the sprinkles started, but wow I'd... More

I had reviewed many of the rooftop bars before coming to NY and decided on this one to celebrate my 40th Birthday. The views are fantastic and I would recommend it for that. Unfortunately their staff lets the place down.The are very snotty and I felt they looked down their noses at me. Couldn't wait to get out of there

I travelled to New York to celebrate my 21st with my mum in September. After hearing good things about 230 fifth I was really excited to go there. It had rained during the night and we went first thing in the morning for breakfast. They sat us down on a wet bench even though there is the option of inside... More

The Empire State Building takes centre stage of the amazing views of the NYC skyline. The bar around 27th Street facing Uptown, so it's not 360 views but still well worth the visit. The drinks are expensive but that's not surprising given the location. Go up and enjoy.

The view they have on the roof top is spectacular! You have the Empire State Building right in front of your seats, it is just thrilling! In the winter and chilly time they offer red coats to all guests, it is fun for snapping pictures of you with your friends. The bar is free of charge, which makes it onw... More

This is one of the best rooftops in NYC. The views are amazing, and unlike many places, 230 Fifth actually has the room to seat as many people as visit here (so you're more likely to get a table). It's best in the Spring-Fall when you can sit outdoors and enjoy the view. Because of its central location in the... More

Anyone wanting some of the best night time views of NYC should definitely come to 230 Fifth Avenue. One negative was that I was a little disappointed with the food menu, I was looking for a decent 3 course meal with attentive waiter service, but what we got was what I like to call bar food with a less than...

It is definitely different than regular bar. It is relaxing, outdoor and you get to drink, drink, drink. Went with a friend; definitely not a place for just yourself. I did see 1 guy busy trying to pick up girls but he's kind of the "odd one out". Be ready to "deal-with-it" with lots of smokers who does not follow... More
