The Press Lounge offers some of Manhattan’s most beautiful and dramatic panoramic views. Refined elegance comes in subtle luxuries; a glass walled interior space, classic cocktails, an extensive wine list, seasonally inspired small plates and informed and welcoming service.

Perhaps because I'm a native New Yorker I am very picky about what I see when I look out onto a view of NYC. The lounge itself is contemporary and sleek. However, aside from the view of a not very pretty section of the Hudson...More

View was fabulous, figured out New York was going to be expensive and the $17 rum proved that. Other than that the best service was from the door man in the lobby. Oh wait there was no service, brutal and we didn't return for the...More

This bar is a bit removed from the bustle of midtown, but provides excellent views from the 16th floor of both the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline. Drinks were a bit pricey, but nothing out of the ordinary. A cool night to be outside, but...More

You are literally in the lap of the city at this 8th floor bar ensconced by tall lit buildings all around. Stunning. Great crowd, interesting seating arrangements - almost a tropical flair. Fun cocktails - pricey of course.

Great bar. Fun energy and lovely seating inside and out. There is a view from every angle. If you eat in the restaurant downstairs you get an escort to the front of the line for the rooftop. There wasn't a line on a cold February...More

People behind us have been refused because they were dressed as "tourists" like bagpack, hat, sandal etc. This is normal so be a minimum class I think, and nice with the guardian ;)

Hi, my fiancé and I were thinking of visiting on 12th October for my 30th birthday and I just wanted to check that the rooftop bar would be open (the website says to check in case of private events). Also what is the average price for a cocktail? Many thanks
