We were at the rooftop bar and had an amazing time with Eric and Bric, they treated us as royalty at the bar. We definitely recommend this spot.

Kenny made us the best Manhattan that I have had coast to coast. As a bourbon chaser, I appreciate a nicely mixed bourbon cocktail. Come visit. You won't be disappointed. Empire lobby bar!

The decor was pleasant and gave good service. The seating and bar stools are comfy and welcomed after walking NY!! As with other hotels the bar prices are higher than outside bars, restaurants etc.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
