Iconic location to enjoy cocktails, lite bites and impeccable views.
The Empire Rooftop Bar can boast with both an indoor lounge, along with East and West outdoor terraces and a seasonal Sun Deck. The West terrace is equipped with a retractable roof, creating a year round rooftop experience.
Newly redecorated, the Empire Rooftop Bar has a light and modern decór with lots of different seating areas. And up from the 12th floor location you get adorable views over the close by Lincoln Center, Brodway and Central Park.
Open for brunch on weekends, the rooftop is otherwise a perfect place for an after-work or after-show drink. Or, by all means, for a full weekend night out, enjoying the friendly and relaxed vibe with a group of friends.
The menu during evenings consist of a set of specialty cocktails, with 'The Empire Sunset' as a given flagship. There is also all kinds of wines, beer, spirits and some American style small plates, like Fried Mac & Cheese Bars and Buffalo Chicken Sliders.
On the Empire Rooftop there is also a cool pool deck, mainly available for guests staying at the Empire Hotel. But non-guest can usually also buy day passes.
Two things to keep in mind: The Empire Hotel Rooftop dress code is business casual, and the rooftop is also a popular place for private events, so check before visiting to avoid disappointment.
