The Empire Hotel Rooftop bar (or Empire Roof Top Bar, as many spell their name) has a very large and festive roof terrace which is furnished with comfortable lounge sofas and benches. The views from the Empire Hotel Bar, over the Lincoln Center and Central Park are adorable. From the Empire rooftop bar one can order good cocktails and bar snacks. There is also a cool swimming pool for those who like to swim. Unfortunately the pool at Empire Hotel NYC Rooftop bar is only open to hotel guests.
