Went to have a drink at DREAM with a great friend I haven't seen in ages. Personally, the decor of the lobby I found nauseating and tacky. Too much going on visually. The door to go upstairs to the bar, with a 2nd floor pool,...More

Really not much special about the AVA Lounge. Perhaps its better in the summer with an outdoor rooftop view. March inside was 'just ok'. Cocktails were fine, but pricy. Decor and ambiance not that great. Hard to have a conversation.

You’ll need to make yourself presentable to gain entry to the roof terrace of the Dream Hotel—no hats, trainers or ripped jeans here; you’d only ruin the chic, palm-tree-studded decor. Come for sunset or gaze at Times Square at night

This location was extremely too small for it to be advertised for anything other than a in-house hotel bar. The room has four couch seating area along the window with the supposedly picturesque views of the city (probably before the current construction/expansion of the nearbing...More

Located on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel, this bar was the perfect setting for a summer evening this past August. The views are great, drinks were priced decent however there is little room to move around if it gets crowded. Still though, had a...More

imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
