The Empire Hotel Rooftop

New York, NY

The perfect way to both experience and escape New York City.

Opened year round and located on the 12th floor of the Empire Hotel, the Empire Hotel Rooftop offers magnificent views of Lincoln Center and the bustling city below. The 8,000 square foot bar and lounge boasts a selection of signature cocktails, savory small plates and entertainment all week long—from weekend dance parties helmed by celebrity DJs to live jazz.

The rooftop’s epicenter is the Penthouse Lounge where the main bar is flanked by comfy seating and floor to ceiling windows. Stepping out onto the vast outdoor space known as The Deck (East Terrace), guests can unwind under the stars at tables under the glow of the Empire Hotel’s iconic neon sign. Opposite of that is the Rooftop Terrace, where a glass convertible roof and allows the party to continue no matter what the weather!

Before heading up to the rooftop, stop into Ed’s Chowder House, also at The Empire Hotel, and enjoy a microbrew and some of the best East Coast seafood around.
