230 FIFTH is New York's largest outdoor Rooftop Garden and Fully enclosed Penthouse Lounge. It is a live music venue, restaurant, and bar located in the heart of NYC, named after its location at 230 5th Ave. It is a 30,000 square foot indoor and outdoor bar, lounge, and event space. The space is divided into two floors. The 20th floor, which is completely enclosed with views of the city, consists of a lounge and private rooms. The 21st floor, which is completely open to the air, is where the igloos, heat lamps, and cabins are during the winter months. They do have large umbrellas for those sunny or rainy days and are partially heated on colder nights.
The terrace has seating for approximately 1000 people and offers some really magical views of the Manhattan skyline, with the Empire State Building as a mighty focal point. It is both an inside and open-air venue that is complemented by a large indoor lounge fully enclosed and with panoramic windows taking care of the views. It is nicely decorated with a lot of wooden furniture and some palm trees on the terrace.
If you’re visiting New York with some friends, the best is to go at night. The background music is a bit loud, but you’ll enjoy the lights of the Empire State Building. If you’re traveling with your children, you may know that it will be impossible to spend the night at the 230 Fifth Rooftop, but you can go with them during the week before 7 pm or for a brunch on Saturday or Sunday.
The rooftop bar delivers a wide selection of both food and drinks. There are well-made classic & specialty cocktails along with beer and wine, both on tap/glass and in a bottle. Their cocktails are delicious! The food menu ranges from bar bites to more full dinner meals like burgers, salmon, fish & chips, and a big selection of sushi. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, there’s a large variety of food. The buffet suits any taste: eggs, bacon, salads, fruits, cheese, and different kinds of bread. Best of all is the highly recommended 230 Fifth brunch buffet, a 'must try' and one of the top NYC rooftop brunches.
The 230 Fifth Rooftop's opening times are Monday to Sunday, they are open every day but after midnight, it’s only a bar and they don’t serve any food. Brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday only, from 10 am to 4 pm, but if you’re looking for a hotspot that is open all year round then this is the place to be.
During the weekdays the dress code is casual but for men, leave your tank tops or sweat pants in your luggage! On weekends, you must be dressed in your upscale casual outfit which means no athletic wear, baggy jeans, t-shirts, hoodies or ripped jeans.
Come for relaxing and sunny drinks with a view during the daytime or enjoy the vibrant party atmosphere at night at one of the most popular rooftop bars in New York!

With venues in New York and Chicago, the Bounce Sporting Club is one of the finest and most extravagant clubs around. Styled after classic gentlemen's lounges and sports bars, it takes the sleekness and sultry comfort you see on screen in the likes of Mad Men and makes it a reality you can enjoy. Just like in old school sports bars, you can enjoy a selection of light bites, gourmet pub food, and sandwiches, hand crafted in their kitchen. They are open for brunch and for dinner. But the real magic is in the drinks. From their speciality cocktails to old classics, although the menu may seem a little limited, rest assured they only serve the finest drinks. They also provide bottle service, with "mega" cups of cocktails or spirits and mixers to share, four varieties of sangria, and the "Jungle Juice" of the week. They have an array of weekly events, with different themes each. Bounce Thursdays offer a more relaxed and conventional club and lounge atmosphere. Bounce back Fridays offer a retro music night. Get Down Saturday and Sunday Funday are their most lively, energetic nights, complete with the latest tunes and sexy guests hitting the dance floor until the early hours of the morning. Seating arrangements at Bounce Club New York are designed for intimacy and comfort. The booths are snug without being oppressive, and there are plenty of tables and booths from which you can people watch with ease. The bar is long and easy to get to, and the lighting is soft and flattering. The music is generally upbeat and friendly, featuring pop, top 40s, 90s and early 2000s tracks, classic rock, pop punk, hip hop, and other danceable, fun, uplifting tunes. It isn't exactly one of Stockholm's best dance clubs, as the ambiance itself focuses more on socializing and relaxing and the dance floor is not big. But if you feel like dancing the music is spot on. The Bounce nightclub has a very strict dress code which is enforced. At least for men. Gentlemen need to wear dress clothes or smart casual. Preferably dress shoes and shirts, but a smart t-shirt and sneakers or high tops are fine. Sportswear, khakis, hats, shorts, distressed or baggy clothes, or tank tops are all forbidden. Women have a bit more flexibility. Anything that is fashionable and classy is allowed. But swimwear, distressed clothes, and sportswear are still forbidden, and heels with a chic cocktail dress is the look they prefer. Do not be surprised if you show up underdressed and aren't allowed in. When it comes to reservations, getting on the guest list can be difficult, but is definitely recommended. Not only will you get priority entry when you queue, but it will be much easier to reserve a table, get bottle service, or upgrade to VIP. This is a very busy venue and you don't want to be lost in the crowd. Remember that, as with Fou, you can reserve a table for dinner as well, if you want to make a full night of it.

Located in the Moxy Hotels building, 18 floors up, Magic Hour is split into five different environments. The giant animal girls outside are great fun.

A new rooftop destination plants itself in the firmament of New York nightlife. The Fleur Room is located at 105 W 28th Street on Moxy Chelsea’s 35th floor. The glass-encased lounge has a 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline, from the Statue of Liberty to the Empire State Building. The club officially opened its doors on March 7, 2019. The design by Rockwell Group adds a glamorous touch to the botanical theme with rich floral fabrics, a copper-clad bar, a water droplet chandelier, and a massive vintage disco ball that once graced the infamous LA Club Vertigo. At the touch of a button, the glass walls of the lounge retract to create an alfresco sky veranda. Since opening its doors, it has become one of the hottest rooftop bars and for good reason, the entire design creates a sophisticated and vintage vibe.
The Fleur Room is a one-of-a-kind experience that takes guests' breath away the moment they step out of the elevator. It’s divided into two spaces: a more casual room complete with a full classic bar and ample seating, and a second, wider room lined with banquettes that transitions into a dance floor as the night goes on. To heighten the experience, the staff raises the garage-style windows to let in the fresh air on warm spring and summer evenings. True to its name—and tipping its hat to the historic Flower District—The Fleur Room welcomes guests to a space filled with floral themes, from the massive bouquet at the entrance to the flora-encased glass tables to the floral-patterned furnishings.
Fridays and Saturdays are your best bet at The Fleur Room. By 12:30 a.m., it becomes the most fun, crazy room—but cool and curated, elevated and elegant. It’s an old-school dance party, with New York as the backdrop. Weeknights can also be a great time and tend to have smaller crowds. Guests can enjoy the relaxed lounge atmosphere and cocktail menu from opening through sunset, and as evening turns into late night, the atmosphere turns more celebratory as a DJ begins cranking the music and the dance floor fills with partygoers. The type of music played is the open format: a mix from groovy, to pop, to hip hop. The music varies to suit many different tastes and the vibe gets more clubby as the night progresses.
The Fleur Room has a reputation for attracting high-profile guests; so you never know who you’re going to see. In fact, the lounge has already hosted well-known visitors such as Mick Jagger, Idris Elba, Sebastian Stan, Mina Cvetkovic, and Chace Crawford, among others.
Be advised that The Fleur Room is pretty strict on dress code, upscale fashionable attire is required. For guys, they recommend a collared shirt, pants, and nice shoes. No basketball shorts, team jerseys, baseball caps, robes, or tank tops will be permitted in the venue. Ladies can’t go wrong with a little black dress and heels. Please note, however, that entrance is always at the discretion of the door staff. Please also keep in mind that all guests must be 21+ w/a valid ID to enter.
Hidden away in the heart of Midtown, Turntable Lounge is a trendy but casual Korean gastropub that radiates a welcoming and laid-back vibe featuring a high-fidelity custom sound system. It was founded by Kiyoung Lee-owner of Turntable Chicken Jazz and Turntable LP Bar & Karaoke-and new Partner Jeremy Seong, owner of the East Village's Thursday Kitchen. The lounge is the only spot where Korean Fried Chicken and signature cocktails hang out together under the pretense of staying sober while making a ‘happy wind’. You’ll be picking the right tracks to sing along to! And with all the trappings of retro-modernica neatly fleshed out in what we might call a vinyl-hardwood-clad speakeasy, this joint is anything but ordinary! Vintage turntables play original LP records in the background as you enjoy world-class fried chicken feasters. Turntable Lounge is definitely the spot to let loose, with tasty fried chicken, beer set to pumping beats, and the option of karaoke too.
The industrial-chic space was designed entirely by Mr. Lee, featuring concrete floors and walls, wooden tables, high ceilings, and a catwalk that displays his LP collection, which these days numbers over 50,000. Walking around the space, guests will find vintage rock concert posters from all of the icons (many of them signed), including The Beatles, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Marley. A photo of pioneering audio engineer James B. Lansing hangs on the wall opposite the bar, an homage to the creator of the speakers that fill Turntable with crisp, high-fidelity sound. Stacks of dormant high-end receivers and audio equipment are also placed decoratively around the space. Large projectors beam black and white movies and other graphics onto the walls, adding an element of otherworldliness to the experience.
The vibe is decidedly fun and casual, as there is no table service and food will be served on disposable plates. The menu features dishes meant for sharing and pairing with ice-cold beer; fried chicken is a specialty prepared in the traditional Korean style. Apart from its crispy fried chicken, Turntable is also known for its Shoestring fries smothered in sautéed kimchi and Applewood smoked bacon, stir-fried spicy pork tacos, fried oysters with katsuobushi, katsu sauce, and wasabi aioli. Beverages include a variety of canned and bottled beers and draft options that use the Bottoms Up system, which fills cups from the bottom up using a special magnet. A concise list of red and white wine by the glass, in addition to well-priced mid-range bottles, is also available, and cold sake by the cup. A full bar offers a compliment of creative cocktails, and slush machines allow for boozy frozen drinks.
Turntable Rock Café & Lounge features a rotating list of DJs spinning music ranging from '80s and 90s rock and pop to contemporary house and dance music. Weekly events are scheduled including karaoke nights, wine/sake promotions, and party nights.
The dress code is casual wear! So whether it’s for happy hour, date night, drinks on the town, a birthday bash, a last minute dinner, or just because you feel like it – they have you covered. Give them a visit, unwind, and indulge in some classic Korean comfort food and drinks!
