We just dropped into the hotel looking for a bar and were directed to the rooftop. Lots if tables outside as well as a bar with seating inside. Very nice place to chill out after a long day in the city. But be warned the prices are HIGH! I had a glass of house red wine...Nothing special for 30 dollars... More

We stayed at the hotel and had a few drinks at this place. We also had a couple of platters, overrated and expensive, come on 46 dollars for 3 pieces of cheese and 8 crackers. in any case, very nice feeling being at the top, nice cocktails but avoid the food.

This was my second time visiting the rooftop, and we came once more on this same trip! First visit was in the evening on a Thursday night. Had to wait for a table, but there was space at the bar to sit. Once we got a table, we were disappointed that there was only one food selection available on the... More

The photos portraying an open, luxurious, serene midtown, Oriental setting are just slightly misleading, unless you have the entire place to yourself. We were there at April's end expecting a more open-air, reasonably spacious experience with a view-- based on the photos. Instead, it was packed, with patrons cheek-to-cheek both around the bar and out onto the patio. Then, out... More

This rooftop restaurant is on one of the roofs of the Peninsula Hotel. Great spot for lunch or a snack and a drink. Look up and watch planes fly over head. Casual atmosphere.

Having visited other Peninsula outlets worldwide, I came in with high expectations. Sadly, it seems that in terms of the quality of both product and service, the NYC establishment is 'surfing' on its past reputation and breathtaking views. The interiors as well as furnishings are tired and in desperate need of renovation. The bar closes at... 11.30PM, which is rather... More

Spent an evening having cocktails and just enjoying the wonderful night time view. The drinks were perfectly made and tasted great. Like all New York rooftops it can be a bit pricey but thats to be expected. I would like to have seen a wider variety of Whiskey since that is my drink of choice but nonetheless the evening there...

This is a hidden get in the city! Overlooking Central Park on one side, and 5th Ave on the other, it's a lovely spot to have drinks with friends and watch day turn to night.

This lovely bar sits on top of the Peninsula Hotel. It affords a 180 degree view high up above Fifth Avenue and is stunning. The drinks are generous and well made. The bartender Alan and the server Salvatore are exceptional. It is a must stop while in New York

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
