Situated 16 stories high at the Conrad New York, Loopy Doopy has stunning views of the Statue of Liberty and the Hudson River. The seasonal rooftop bar has a brand-new look and feel for 2015, with new furniture, a new layout and innovative new menu items. Try the Prosecco and Ice Pop, an alcohol-infused people’s pop served in a glass of Prosecco from Loopy Doopy’s very own tap. Not to be missed on the food menu are the BRUFFIN(tm), brioche-like pastry filled with a variety of sweet and savory ingredients.
Atop the Archer Hotel, Spyglass Rooftop Bar is a throwback to another era. The rooftop bar is a contemporary interpretation of the classic sophistication and luxury reminiscent of 1940s and 1950s glamour in New York. But while Spyglass is a hotspot for some of the city’s most fashionable events, it’s also a comfortable escape for New Yorkers. Experience the breathtaking panoramic views, it’s got one of the best views of the Empire State Building, while enjoying small bites and crafted cocktails.
