Top of the Strand - Rooftop Bar


“It’s not a stretch to imagine that you’re perched in a skybox, watching, up close, the gorgeous light show that is Manhattan at night.” - The New York Times
Top of the Strand NYC

Welcome to our year-round rooftop bar!

The elevator releases you to the 21st floor, leaving you face-to-façade with the Top of the Strand’s most notable regular - the 102-story Empire State Building, holding court just beyond the slide-away glass ceiling.  With interiors arranged by set designer Lydia Marks (Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada) this intimate cocktail loft belies its almost-too-perfect NYC sightlines and chic-ness with a surprisingly unpretentious vibe.  

Midtown locals and hotel guests lounge on comfy patterned banquettes straddling a garden-like oasis of greenery, privately delighted to have found a rooftop oasis away from the crowds and confusion of the Times Square bar scene.
