A friend and I visited the restaurant yesterday and were shocked by the standards allowed. The only way I can describe this place is as a old dirty club, feet stick to the carpet, cutlery and cups were dirty. I felt physically sick and I do not imagine itwill be long before somebody gets very poorly from the undercooked barely... More

Visited here with my husband on a Saturday night. While waiting in line outside, we heard the bouncers (loudly) talking about how many tables were left and how they needed to sell them to make money. The bouncer turned, ushered us in, then proceeded to ask the young guys behind us how many bottles they were buying so they could... More

I visited this bar with my wife at about 730pm on a Friday evening. On the ground floor there was a man who was asking anyone who appeared 21 for ID, he didn't ask us and being 36 we didn't expect to be asked, although we both had our driving licence just in case. We were pushed for time due... More

We called in here for a look and a quick drink after a long day on our feet. The sun was just going down & all the sunny spots to sit were taken - would recommend going early to enjoy the sun while it's still up. A large outdoor rooftop space with loud music - not a place to go... More

We visited the rooftop bar after a recommendation from a friend. there were six of us. Our first visit was mid afternoon and after purchasing drinks from the bar we opted for seats on the terrace. It has great views across the city and especially of the Empire State building. We decide to go back another day at twilight to... More

One of the best view in NY. Went there in April and had to say was a little bit cold but good cocktails selection and the view is just stunning. My friends went to Empire state building and were highly disappointed with long queues. After we went to 230 Fifth rooftop bar they said is pretty much the same view... More

Fantastic views of the Empire State with good happy hour prices for drinks but overall the visit felt cramped as the bar has far too many seats to cram in the visitors. If you can reserve a table I would recommend doing so.

Went to this rooftop Bar as a couple on our visit to New York, and were told to visit this place,not for the drinks but for the view of the Empire State building. What a view we had, well worth going up the twenty floors to see (in the lift) The top half of the ESB was red on the... More
