    My favorite NYC rooftop bar with the best servers and bartenders. Always friendly, always thoughtful. An absolute gem. The only thing I could ask for is switching from plastic to paper straws. Otherwise, perfection. Also: do not miss the rooftop views in the evening. Gorgeous,

    Unfortunately, 45 minutes after our reservation time, we were asked to leave for a private party.

    Really fabulous cocktails - innovative new concoctions and great spins on the classics. The Bestseller is lighter than you’d think and tastes like a delicious pistachio gelato. The Catcher in the Rye, a take on an old fashioned, hits you in a delightful way with the lavender at the end. Everyone around us raved about their drinks. The literary titles only add to the enjoyment of the experience. Thought and care is put into both taste and appearance. The rooftop is a lovely oasis in the middle of the city. Wonderful.
