New York is a city with a buzzing nightlife, and if you are out to have some fun, you will find a host of options before you. Whatever your mood chooses, the city presents, so all you really need to do is make a wish. If your wish now happens to be a quiet, romantic night outdoors, with a breathtaking panorama before your eyes and drinks to match the feel of the season, the rooftop bar at the 230 Fifth Restaurant is as good as perfect. It is exclusive and private and the views of the skyline are unforgettable.
You will find the rooftop garden which hosts the bar both stimulating and picturesque, complete with greens of all kinds and sprinkled with a healthy dose of palm trees. You can while your entire night away in conversation and relaxation, if you so desire. Alternatively, you could come in for an early evening retreat, and tank up before you head out. The rooftop bar at 230 Fifth remains open from 4 pm to 4 am everyday.
One of the most interesting aspects of this outdoor bar is that it is a great winter hotspot too. As the establishment puts it, a bit of cold is no reason to miss out on the dazzling views of New York and some fun with friends! Guests certainly don’t feel the chill for long, with the special warm drinks on the menu and the cozy blankets on offer. However, winter is past now, and spring is perhaps the best season to be outdoors. The evenings are cool and mild, and the excellent service at this bar will keep your spirits lifted and your mood chirpy.
The 230 Fifth was established fairly recently in 2006, and since then it has jumped up the charts and is now regarded as one of the most atmospheric rooftop bars in the city. The establishment also hosts a chic fully-enclosed penthouse lounge for those more keen on indoor comforts. The place refuses to be stereotyped though, and every Saturday and Sunday, the gardens open up for brunch, which goes on from 11 am to 4 pm. In the evening normal service resumes of course.
The 230 Fifth is run by the former owner of a famous chain of New York nightclubs. The experience and good taste brought to bear upon this rooftop bar is clearly evident, and its reputation has spread fast. It has already hosted a bunch of celebrity receptions, including the Premier Party of The Devil Wears Prada, holiday parties for Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Morgan Stanley, Ford Modeling Agency and many others, and private receptions for Microsoft, IBM and Goldman Sachs.
It certainly is a place worth visiting, provided you are over 21 years old and dressed in smart casuals. All the details are available from the official website, www.230-fifth.com.
