Though it boasts a stunning view of Times Square, the New York Times building and views extending northward as far as Hearst Tower, this terrace transports you to a different world, with a futuristic Jetsons-like ambience. Kick your liquid dinner off with a refreshing strawberry-lychee mojito or a peach and bourbon tea—both off of their signature cocktails list—at one of the two outdoor bars. Or, if you’ve had a rough week, rally the troops and grab a comfy lounge seat and a group table under a cabana.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
