Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge Rooftop Bar in New York

Skyline, Empire State Building
Bar bites / Brunch
Year round


Large indoor/outdoor rooftop bar and lounge, featuring an 'urban amusement park' concept and epic Empire State Building views.

Right by Times Square, on the 18th floor of the fantastic MOXY NYC Times Square, you find Magic Hour, a spacious and happening year-round rooftop bar and lounge.

Colorful, fun and vibrant, the rooftop deck has several different spaces: a smaller urban lounge leads out to two separate outdoor areas. The elegant and garden-like east side offers fantastic views over the Empire State Building, while the west side is more carnival-esque, including a carousel-seating area, slowly rotating.

The most unique space is however the Foreplay area, tucked away in a corner. Here you find a miniature putt-putt course with large-size animals instead of windmills. Perfect for the adult who wants to have fun like a kid again.

Open nightly, and also for weekend rooftop brunch, Magic Hour holds an electric and vibrant atmosphere, suitable for for groups of friends looking for fun days and nights out. Live DJs, performances and themed parties are on the schedule every week.

The rooftop bar offers signature cocktails and a full menu of 'curiosities', spirits served in all forms and shapes, made perfect to share. There is also bottle service of spirits, bubbles and wines, along with a few light bites.

For a larger selection of food, the weekend rooftop brunch is the time to visit. Pancakes, eggs, sandwiches and cold pressed juices are mixed with Magic Mimosas and cocktails.

Magic Hour rooftop is a popular spot, so reservations are highly recommended. Both for brunch and night time visits. Guests staying at MOXY will receive priority rooftop access. Remember that the Magic Hour dress code is dressy (no shorts or sandals after 9pm) and that Magic Hour is a 21+ venue.
