great place even in winter

I haven't been here since the summer, came by for the first time in the winter, and place was very busy witha good vibe. No cover and there are great views of the city! Drinks are pricey however - and wish more people would dance, because the music is pretty decent.

Free coatcheck

Came by Saturday night after hearing great things about 230 fifth lounge. And to my surprise they were right on about the place. We came with a pretty even ratio (2 girls , 3 guys) we didn't wait more than a few minutes (felt longer because it was very windy) They didn't charge us a cover and offered a complimentary coat check! I can't remember the last time any lounge/club didn't charge for coat check (very nice touch) Rode the elevators to the top floor (think its on the 20th) Place was packed with a nice looking crowd. Have to admit I kept an eye on the guy I was with because there were a lot of hot girls. We checked out the outdoor terrace, was very windy we stayedin the penthouse portion. Just seemed like a laid back vibe with good energy. I think I may have my birthday party here.

I went here strickly based on what I read about it; the view being one of the best in NYC, and it definetely was. Shame I discovered this rooftop lounge when it was cold. It looks like it would be a great place to come in the summer time when the weather is nice to sit outside and take in the glory that is NYC. I will definetely be back

Great looking setup, no cover, and drinks were decent. Crowd was great,we came on a Tuesday Night. Yeah, it was the last night in NYC and we wanted to check it out. We really wanted to go for brunch or happy hour. Over all we had a great time and come back on our next visit to NYC. 230 fifths rooftop was great.

Went here last night to have a drink and see the view with 5 of my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday! The ambience is amazing and can imagine it would be an awesome spot to go and see in the warmer weather. I would definitly go here again, its a very intimate place when its not jammed, def a good date night place

the view is what its all about and this rooftop lounge has the most amazing view in NYC. You can see the Empire state Bldg feels like you can reach out and touch it. It has a few of all the major landmarked buildings in manhattan

Went here for the first time with a group for a birthday and had an amazing time. Crowd was fun, music was great. Drinks were expensive, yes, but the view and the atmosphere justified the price. I had an awesome time and I will definitely be back.

Favorite rooftop

By yesyes2001 on 2/7/2011

  • Yes, I would go back!

The View is Spectacular! I love New York City; I go to rooftops to dream....to get away from the streets. When your up that high there is no sound, just the beautiful skyline of skyscrapers, so quiet that you have time to reflect and hear your thoughts. And then you're interrupted by someone who says, "Can I offer you a drink?" It's like someone waking you up from a beautiful dream. Some people like sports; I prefer sipping wine and champagne on New York City roof tops. 230 Fifth is one of my favorites. Located at the top of an office building, the rooftop has spectacular views. The drinks won't cost you an arm and leg, most drinks are under $12 for a roof top that's not bad. And although its a rooftop during the week they have actual glassware thats amazing, I love the furniture and couches. Truly one of my favorite rooftops in NYC.
