Perfect for impressing guests coming to NYC. An awesome combination of delicious bites, quality cocktails, and a dance area (dj on site).

Met some of my friends after work. The views on a cold winter but sunny day were breathtaking. While the crowd was a little touristy the energy was high. Music gave the lounge a cool vibe. Drinks menu was extensive but would like to add non alcoholic beer and a few more non sweet cocktails for the teetotalers (was not drinking on account of lent but the other friends were) Ordered lots of bar eats. i felt the paltry 3 tiny crab cakes were a ripoff and the tapas could also be a little more eclectic. Fried cauliflower was a little too sweet. Clearly you shouldn’t go there for the food.

I am from Connecticut ant it was soooo beautiful, It was beautiful. The view the food was amazing i was impressed usually expensive places taste like crap and they charge an arm and a leg but this food was good!!! I loved the short ribs it was off the chart ! Drinks were good as well! I posted the location and view all over my social media and recommended the place to already 5 people and im going back again ! The only bad thing j would say about this place is its hard to see the menu . I had to use the flashlight and i saw another customer use his flashlight ( on our phones )

Although the view was spectacular, the service was indifferent and unsatisfactory. The food was mediocre at best. Blaring music as if there was a dance floor rather than music that would have been suitable for viewing NYC skyline and enjoying drinks and food.

INCREDIBLE! I contacted Skylark before our visit to inform then that we were going to the rooftop bar for a special occasion. On arrival we were given complimentary prosecco and given a private sofa overlooking the ESB. The cocktails were very strong and very tasty (about $15/20 each) and our waitress was incredibly attentive, even giving us a shot of vodka on the house to toast our celebrations! Dj was great, atmosphere was very fitting and the crowd was mixed ages. Amazing!

To begin you walk through a door to a creepy and dimly lit corridor that looks like an ally way and a man who ask to see your ID and he can’t really see it as it’s so dark. Then you walk to an elevator go up to the floor and then confusingly navigate your way through more creepy corridors and stairs before you meet two women who send you to a cloak room to put you coat and then when I went to ask another question they didn’t look up from their I pads. It was for my sisters 21st birthday so I had some questions but just gave up.
Once we were sat we ended up being next to the bathroom, we asked to move to a free table away from them but were refused. The drinks are average and not worth the price. We had to go find the waiter twice to get another drink and when she did she was so uninterested and really didn’t seem to want to be there ( which is understandable because the music is so loud you can’t hear yourself think...)
As it was my sisters birthday and a nice man came and gave her a cupcake which was brilliant.
It is very well decorated and obviously the view is great you can look over the Empire State Building and time square which is really what you are paying for.
When I tried to give the cheque to the manager (or I assume he was the manager) he ignored me and didn’t even look up from his phone (again I can understand as he may not of heard me over the deafening music) but I felt incredibly awkward.
It was a nice experience because of the occasion and the view but the staff was a huge let down.

Must see! Incredible view of NYC in a wrap around, easy to navigate spacious nightclub with everything easily accessible -- including a corner pool room. Staff was exceptional, quick and smiling as they effortlessly swished through the guests. A pleasurable evening! No cover charge made it ridiculously appealing. Great drinks.

Expected much more upscale setting and available food. Kitchen closed at 11 and we had a 10:30 PM after theater reservation. The website gave no indication that food was served until 11PM. This location does not offer the spectacular skyline view one wants of Manhattan. The location is a bit seedy. There are more upscale options to try.
