It is free entry to the roof top bar overlooking the manhattan skyline. Drinks are priced accordingly but not overly expensive for the location and view. It is really relaxed atmosphere with great music.

Not positive about age restriction; my guess would be that all could allowed as it is a lounge (with food)more than bar or club. You can ask the attendants or at the desk before long up at the elevator.
