Great place!

  • Yes, I would go back!

I went there for the first time this Saturday, and I got to say I was impressed. I love the design ... I love the whole view. The leopard in the lobby was cool lol ... The music and the atmosphere was great. It might be just a tab pricey but for a place like that its worth it. Defiantly a place to check out!

Worst Customer Service

  • No, I would not go back!

This establishment has employed the rudest people that I have ever encountered. Curt, crass, cursing, and altogether abrasive, unless you enjoy being screamed at I would never go to this bar.

Absolute Worst Club in Manhattan

By Vanderbilt32 on 7/12/2008

  • No, I would not go back!

i would never go back to this club. Even for the Manhattan scene, the bouncers are severely pretentious meanwhile wearing H&M suits. The drinks are very watered down and the decor is a hideously purple. The best this club has to offer is the view and no offense but any respectable East Sider can offer the same luxury up on a silver platter. Overall, I will never subject myself to such an awful club again and I STRONGLY suggest you do the same.

Only for the view

Pros: Awesome rooftop. The bar is actually nice. Cons: Rude bartender. Drinks are really crap and overpriced (I don't mind paying but give me a good cocktail at least)

Good location but ...

By sbwpchen on 3/23/2008

  • No, I would not go back!

The bar is at a really nice location. Even if the weather is too cold for the rooftop now, the downstairs bar already provides very good views. I didn't like the waitresses though ... such arrogant snobs ... My biggest complaint is the lack of choices at the bar though. No magaritas, no daiquiries. The cosmo and tequila sunrise that came out were very plain - too plain in fact, they tasted like water after a few minutes when the ice started to melt.

rooftop bar, sky-high prices

By micnyc80 on 7/9/2007

  • Overall Rating: 5
  • Yes, I would go back!

Manageable crowd (some people still don't know about this place!), adequate ambiance, horrendous bar-tending. $11 beers and $15 flavored cocktails that could use a lot less flavor and a lot more alcohol make this place a magnet for the expense account/pay-day crowd.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
