This place is awesome. Only been there on fridays and saturdays during warm weather. If you're a single guy, you'll be in heaven. Tons of hotties. The door guy is picky for a reason; keep out the riff raff and control the amount of guys so it doesn't turn into a pirate ship. Drink prices? Watever, if I wanna drink cheap, I'll drink at home. Music is 80's once in a while you hear a good song. and it seems like every weekend has the same sound track. lighting inside is bad too and the dancefloor is wayyy too small not official one either . Guys, make sure you wear a blazer or collared shirts and no sneakers duhhh. Also, get there at a normal time not 3am after you have been out all night because unless you know the door guy you're not getting in after 3 am if your a bunch of dudes with classy eyes. Over all great pick up spot!

give it a shot

Okay, I do have mixed feelings on 230 5th. First of all, the rooftop lounge is amazing...the view is incredible and the club actually provides Snuggies and heat lamps while you sit outside so you won't freeze your ass off. However, it is always crowded on weekends and takes a while to get a drink. So stick with the weeknights if you don't want to deal with the crowds!

I've been here only once in the winter time but am dying to go back. This is a really nice, chic place to have after work drinks. I really enjoyed their coconut mojito and romli sliders. I also enjoyed the view. The 230 Fifth lounge offered an excellent view of the Empire State Building as well as the chrysler. The patrons were chic and trendy business people. Hope to go back soon in the spring!

great even in the winter

I have not been to the rooftop since last summer and figured would see what its like in the winter time. I came with a guy friend about 12am, 2 minute wait at the door. The place was packed with really beautiful people dressed up. ( I did notice the bouncer turn away some guys for wearing t shirts) The DJ played a mix of house, pop, top 40's. Although there is no dance floor people were dancing near their tables and in the isles, Drinks are typical for any upper class new york lounge bar or whatever this fantastic place is. Inside is a little weird with all the different colors. However, the view does make it really sexy. I found the place to have a lot of different walks of life. people from all over the world, NJ , NY , CT and all the way from Japan. Its a really chill place crowd being so diverse makes it a fun and not stuck up clingy type of place. In short, reason for writing this review was to share my Winter experience at 230, It really was cool even in the cold since they have the inside area which is pretty big. Will def be back next week

Fantastic bar with stunning views. One of the best New York experiences I've had over several trips in the past 6 months - definitely worth a visit if you're from out-of-town.

view makes it worth it

Awesome place with a view for 1 or 2 drinks max. The views are worth it, but not for all night. come early no lines. During weeknights much more relaxed.

diverse

230 5th is an interesting place. The crowds vary from cougars, wall street financiers, to young party goers. I love to take people from out of town to this place, because the rooftop has an absolutely gorgeous view of the Empire State building, as well as the lounge. I do recommend that warm apple cider drinks during the winter time and any drink on the roof on a warm sunny day. Cover is Free, Guys traveling in large groups should get bottle service, or should get some dates, Ratio here is very good

incomparable views

What a spectacular place to have a stylish NYC night out. The roof deck of this bar is ENORMOUS and worth it for the views you have a direct view of the empire state building. I recommend you sit on the western deck for the best views. you get incomparable views of NYC in a sleek, ultra stylish lounge. I have personally met the owner and he is down to earth and takes care of his clients. If you have the opportunity to go to a private event there-do it! the staff is exceptionally attentive to detail and will make every penny you spend worth it. I have attended many private functions over the years and always left an event hungry.However, not at this lounge! It offers more food than the guests can handle. This will be the 4th function my company has hosted at this venue and each time they were amazing. I know its sounds like im in love with this place but its true. The mgt and ownership is really on top of it and pay attention to detail. Highly recommend 230 FIFTH as one of NYC's premiere outdoor bar scenes.
