“look for other options”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

I really like rooftop bars, I just wish I went somewhere else. The view is okay, not fabulous. 19th floor is just not that high in this neighbourhood, so you're looking at the ductwork of other buildings, and the view of Grand Central that should be most spectacular is blocked. The cocktail options were good - but served in plastic cups at premium prices ?!? Food options are extremely limited, and no table service offered since bartenders were the only staff. Hours are also extremely limited - what lounge closes at 10pm and doesn't open on weekends? Overall quite disappointing.

“Rooftop Bar Cancellation”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We had Mad46 Rooftop bar booked for around 4 months for our post wedding drink for our Saturday wedding day. Around 24 hours before we were to leave from the UK on the Monday we were emailed by the bar cancelling our booking because they had just realised that they were closed, we were offered 20% off if we drank in the lobby instead but we wanted a rooftop bar. This caused a lot of stress just before leaving the UK for our wedding but eventually we got another bar sorted. My wife emailed them back to say how unhappy she was at the whole thing and they didn't have the courtesy to email back, sorry but that's why you get 1 out of 5, avoid.

“Nice location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice view!
Ok food - but pricy!
The waiters were sweet and helpfull as were the elevator service.
Nice cocktails - but also a bit pricy.
The prices in the cocktail menu differs from the price on the cheque. Said 14$ in the menu but said 15$ on the cheque.
But all in all an okay visit

“Great rooftop bar for cocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went to this rooftop bar last wk when the weather had just turned nice and it was packed. Please note that there is a line to get up to the rooftop after 7 pm or sometimes earlier in the late spring /summer time. The line can be quite long and frustrating. The drinks as in any NYC rooftop are pricey. $12 for a beer or glass of wine. They have great views and there is lots of room to move around. There is also an indoors as well. Note the bar gets crowded so there may be a wait to order your drinks. Definitely a place to go to kick back and relax with friends. Great for couples, groups,etc. It is located in the Roosevelt Hotel for those who dont know exactly where to go.

“Cool Rooftop Bar near Grand Central”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

A group of friends and I were headed to Grand Central and decided to pop in for a nightcap on a Thursday night around 11:00. Only a handfull of people at that time. Loungers all over the place but with waitress service only. There's a walk up bar but nowhere to linger comfortably if you have to stand (except against the interior wall) because it is fairly narrow. Bottled beer was $8, drinks around $15. Eclectic, mixed age crowd. Looks exactly like my imagination when I think of rooftop bar. There was also an interior room with couches and other seating but no one was in there. Worth a pop in.
