Half of the bar was reserved, therefore the rest of us were squashed in. Windows filthy - couldn't see the 'view'. Nasty, pushy for tips barmaid. One waitress who was just not interested. Therefore you then have to go to the bar yourself, order your...More

Nice rooftop with a view on Central Park, perfect place to enjoy a cocktail at sunset. Cocktails are a bit pricey but i guess it's normal for the location and the view.

First class view towards Central Park with plush indoor and outdoor seating areas. Good range of drinks and cocktails, but expensive. Staff not particularly friendly unless you appear to be prepared to spend hundreds of dollars!

On a clear night, the view is super nice. However, on a non clear night, I would go elsewhere, as the drinks are expensive. On the plus side, they are GOOD substantial, non watered down drinks. Very, very packed on a clear, crisp night.

Enjoyed nice evening at the Roof. Nice to be able to enjoy NYC a bit from above and without having to walk further. Also it is close to where I normally stay. The bar has a more honest relaxed feel to it than many minimalist...More

Beautiful view of Central Park from above! Drinks are priced about the same as other restaurants in Manhattan. Service was a little bit slow but overall a good experience.

The view is great and the drinks are good but expensive (the wine was cheaper). The service is okay but not great.

This bar was located on the roof of Viceroy Hotel. The open air terrace was a great place to view Central Park. It is obviously popular, especially with the after work crowd, as, it was packed at around 6pm mid week. Open late with access...More
