This place is amazing!! You have the most perfect view of Times Square, the cocktails are reasonably priced ($15) and the food bites are delicious! The only reason it's not 5* is because the service was appalling. Our server was miserable the whole time and...More

Hi! How far in advance can you book a table for new years eve? How much roughly would it cost me and my partner if we reserve a table from 8pm for a meal and drinks to celebrate the ball drop?

You can book months in advance & better if you do want a table. Costs, I've seen from $2,500 at the back of the room to about $15,000 for the windows.....

Newly renovated and framed by chic, whitewashed décor, our portal to Times Square is bursting with theatric energy and color. Gather at our communal tables and peer out at the bustling world outside our walls. At night, the space transforms with a DJ booth and beats that echo through the night. Let the neon glow light your way to a new sensory experience.
