Get to the outside patio and grab a seat because the view of the City is wonderful. The inside is...meh...with a decent view. We just drank beer and hung out on the patio - perfect night amongst the red glow of the Empire Hotel sign

We were staying nearby and found out about the monday night jazz via google.
We headed up at 6.30pm and got to enjoy happy hour priced drinks!
The service was very good.
The jazz was amazing... it was more world music... a guitar trio who scored the original music from Woody Allen's 'Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona' and 'Midnight in Paris' (two of my favourite movies!) I really enjoyed myself and it was so great to hear the familiar music live!
The view is just spectacular... we got a great seat by the window and really enjoyed the music, view and atmosphere! The outdoor area under the huge Empire Hotel neon sign is also pretty cool and great for photos! We headed around the corner to Rosa Mexicano for a late dinner after the jazz and I'd recommend this too!

It's alright if you're on your early 20s, but not for a little more mature crowd. Besides, it's far away from being the best rooftop in town.
