It’s spring – time to head outdoors to enjoy a cooling beverage with bites or even a full meal at one of New York City’s rooftop bars.
Sip an elevated craft cocktail while enjoying unobstructed 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River from downtown in the sizzling hot Meatpacking District at The Gansevoort Rooftop, Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC. The Rooftop brings bar food favorites to a new level. The outdoor seating opposite the main dining area is a perfect place to catch the rays and work on a tan, but if you prefer indirect exposure, sit inside with floor-to-ceiling windows in the Rooftop’s Greenhouse. Fridays and Saturday nights from 9pm on, the DJ plays live sets.
For a not-to-be-missed experience on the hotel’s rooftop, head to intimate Saishin at the back of the main dining space. This rooftop omakase concept offers both a twelve-piece omakase experience and a la carte options crafted by Michelin Star-trained sushi Chef Frankie Yong Doon Chef Frankie's sea urchin topped with wasabi
Chef Frankie serves melt-in-your-mouth sushi of the freshest variety: scallops, red snapper, sea urchin, smoked trout, and much more. Each masterpiece is adorned with fresh wasabi or back truffle, crispy shallots or plum paste and whatever other ingredients the supremely-talented Chef chooses to make. Best to make reservations, as this place is super-hot.
