“great view, average service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

When the waiters deign get round to serving you they do so very pleasantly, albeit very slowly, but who cares when there's such a breathtaking view to be enjoyed from the terrace.
The bar is very popular and open until 4 am. The trendy music isn't played so loud that you can't enjoy a conversation without straining your vocal chords. Drinks are expensive - nothing under $15, but you can nurse the same one for ages.

“Great for evening drinks and NYC views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We visited Plunge Bar + Lounge twice this weekend along with other places in the Meatpacking District. Drinks are a little pricey but worth it for the atmosphere and views.

“It's a great rooftop bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

But it's now a tourist mecca. it's still a fun thing to do for an evening or a weekend, but its costly of food and drinks, the menu hasn't been freshened up in years and there is too little wait staff. I used to love coming here, but now I feel it's more of a summer obligation than fun.

“Great spot for a drink and the NYC skyline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This place has a wonderful view of the city both during the day and in the evening. Definitely a city hotspot for a weekend get together or adult lounge scene. It does very crowded, drinks are pricey and you can sometimes not hear yourself talk, but, this is the case with most of these venues. Service is always good, but you will wait. Great music and ultra chic lounge area. Come before 11 to beat the crowds and grab a spot and bring some cash, you will definitely need it.

“Fantastic view of 4th of July fireworks,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Was with a party of 6 on the 4th and wanted a unique experience for viewing the fireworks. The view was fantastic. Since we had bottle service we had our own sofa and table. The music was awesome. Kudos to the DJ. We also received barbecue sandwiches. The service was good. I would not recommend going without paying for table service. It looked very uncomfortable and crowded in that area of lounge. Would definitely go again for fireworks.
