The Press Lounge Reviews
Atmosfera unica. New York che tutti abbiamo sognato almeno una volta. Panorama mozzafiato. Il rooftop più emozionante al mondo. more »Unique atmosphere. New York that we all dreamed about at least once. Breathtaking. The most exciting rooftop in the world.
La vista es hermosísima, el lugar bonito, pero un tanto aburrido para mí, solo la vista merece la pena, y la verdad es que nunca me quejo de los precios y menos en NY en donde todo es super caro, pero... more »The view is beautiful, the place nice, but a bit boring for me, only the view is worth it, and the truth is I never complain about the prices and less in NY where everything is super expensive, but, a beer in 25dlls? I'm serious??? It's ridiculous and I was bored, so a couple of drinks, pictures and goodbye.
If you love the ambience of a city roof top bar this place is for you. If you like paying 18 dollars for a Jameson with ginger ale this place is also for you. Me, I'm more of a "let's get to know each other without screaming your head off because you can't hear each other from 10mm away" kind of guy. That coupled with being able to buy a whole bottle of jameson for 40 bucks... I'll say, this place is not my style. But definitely a great place if you're looking for ambience.
Fantastic views. The service was the only part that was lacking. I waited 30 minutes before getting a drink from the bar directly. Got service after that. Really was 2 or 3 stars because I think service is very important but the view and atmosphere earned it an undeserved star!
