The Pool Deck, The Empire Hotel's rooftop pool bar, technically accommodates a maximum of 150 hotel guests; but if you have the know-how to reach the Hudson Hotel’s Sky Terrace rooftop sans room key, we’re thinking you can do the same here. Should you want to escape the glow of the Empire Hotel sign, there are five reservable cabanas, each equipped with a plasma-screen TV, a telephone (because we don’t have cell phones?), wireless internet, and refrigerators.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
