Brass Monkey Rooftop Bar in New York

Hudson river, NJ skyline
Classic American pub food
Year round


The only neighborhood bar in the neighborhood

The Brass Monkey Bar NYC is a classic American bar with good prices, burgers and a lot of different beers. Everything you would expect from a good ol' bar, just that this one also comes with a lovely rooftop terrace, where you can catch a glimpse of the Hudson River and New Jersey.

Not the highest or most fancy rooftop bar in New York, but instead 'the only neighborhood bar in the neighborhood'.

Located in the Meatpacking District,just below the High Line, the roof terrace at Brass Monkey is lush and with wooden furniture in English pub style. The bar do serve a lot of beers, but there is also wine, both in glass and by the bottle, and a set of signature cocktails.

As for food there is everything that a classic bar menu should have, from carved bar steak and beer battered fish tacos, to burgers, flatbreads and spicy sweet potato wedges. And every weekend between 11am-1pm they usually serve brunch at the rooftop.

The Brass Monkey rooftop bar is an ideal place among the best rooftop restaurants NYC has to offer, if you want to relax a little from the urban rush and feel the cheerful New York City. It might not look or feel like a classic NYC rooftop bar, but thats only nice and adds to the variety of rooftops that you can find in this lovely city.

With several levels of both indoor and outdoor space, Brass Monkey is available year round. So swing by and enjoy the friendly service along with a vibrant and relaxed atmosphere.
