The Pod 39 Hotel rooftop bar NYC provides a stunning view of New York City and all the skyscrapers. Located in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Midtown Manhattan, just a couple of blocks from the Chrysler Building, the terrace has a really cool 1800's setting with brick arches, ivy walls and cosy lanterns glowing in the night.
The rooftop at Pod 39 is run by Empellón Al Pastor, so it is also reffered to as the Empellón Al Pastor Rooftop.
With a full and year round Mexican-inspired restaurant in the lobby of the hotel, the rooftop is open seasonally and serves lighter bites from the restaurant, along with fresh cocktails. The Pod 39 rooftop menu includes the classic Margarita, different canned beers and wine by the glass, shots and a few tiki inspired cocktails.
Pod 39 Rooftop is a perfect place on this list, for some after-work and evening cocktails.
Usually the rooftop bar comes with great and vibrant atmosphere, and also a bit of waiting to get up, as it is a popular place, especially among a younger crowd. But the views and the charming settings make Pod 39 NYC well worth a bit of waiting.
The Pod 39 Rooftop dress code is smart casual, but more in a stylish than strict way. Dress in well-fitted clothes that you are comfortable in, and you will feel at home in the large and trendy crowd.
