River-to-river views from one of the highest rooftop bars in NYC.
Bar 54 New York is the tallest rooftop bar in Times Square, and also among the highest in the city. As the name clearly suggests, the rooftop is located on the 54th floor, at the Hyatt Centric Times Square, and offers a really superb river-to-river view.
The amazing vistas include the Chrysler Building and all of lower Manhattan. One of the top views any of the best rooftop bars NYC has to offer.
The bar offers a really impressive drink menu, including a large set of well crafted cocktails with farm-fresh house-made ingredients. There are 'Shaken and Refreshing' ones, 'Bubbles and Fizzes' and 'Tropical Excursions', along with beers, wines in both glass and by bottle, a wide section of whiskey and also some tasty bar bites.
The prices at Bar 54 NYC are quite hefty, but if you look beyond that and towards the view, you will see it is worth it, at least for one drink.
Seating comes both out on the terrace and at the inside lounge. And while reservations for the inside are highly recommended, the terrace works on a first come, first served basisis. And since it is not huge, try to be in real good time.
Bar54 is also a great rooftop for visits during winter, when the fantastic rooftop igloos are out. The bubble-like, transparent balls make for a really cool experience, and you can ejoy the view even on the colder days.
