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!
