Summer 2015 has been quite a hit so far in terms of rooftop bar events in NYC bars and hotel rooftops. One of New York City’s most talked about venues is the Upstairs Rooftop Lounge located at the top of the 30-story high Kimberly Hotel in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. This astonishing location has a variety of atmospheres with stunning interior design, fancy glass ceilings, and walls, along with breathtaking views of the iconic Chrysler Building. This thoughtfully designed structure was intended to be elegant yet inviting to the sun. An entirely sophisticated location to enjoy during the summer season in NYC.
Upstairs has been in the press several times for being one of NYC’s best rooftop bars and restaurant, a true sky-high hideaway. The outdoor patio is a perfect setting for their creative cocktails as you nibble on lamp chop lollipops or truffle mac and cheese.
With picturesque scenery, the aroma from the kitchen, delicious food & drinks, the sounds of New Yorkers enjoying themselves, and the touch of class, appealing to all of the senses was clearly the venue’s plan. Besides taking in the 360-degree views, what else is top-notch at the Upstairs Rooftop bar in NYC? Well…
Their savory menu items include dishes like:
Guacamole Chipotle Tomato Trio with corn chips
Yellowfin tuna carpaccio with grilled pineapple salsa and avocado cream
Lump crab cakes with ginger-mango salsa, and a spicy chili
Stuffed Mushrooms with goat cheese and pesto
Kobe burger sliders
…and that’s just to name a few.
The signature cocktail menu with creative names related to NYC locations includes:
The Midtown: Makers Mark Bourbon based “Novel in a glass” with fresh raspberry and chamomile.
The Chrysler: Champagne cocktail made with the finest honey, Hennessy Black cognac and fresh lemon and lime.
The Pomika: A fusion of vodka, fresh pomegranate, citrus, mint and a dash of royal liqueur.
Summer Breeze: A complex and flawless blend of citrus, cucumber, basil, Acai infused vodka, elderflower and a whisper of licorice.
The Watson: Gin based cucumber martini made with white cranberry juice and fresh lime.
Visitors can choose from a selection of beers on tap (and by the bottle), along with an extensive international wine list. An excellent way to enjoy this NYC rooftop bar while munching on fried baby artichokes and some grilled calamari this summer."
