Hip New Venue Redefines the NYC Rooftop Experience
This is the time of year when rooftop venues are booming in Manhattan, and they are great choices for after-hours events at destination corporate meetings.
We love one new venue in particular that has opened at a hot hotel in Manhattan. This rooftop brand began as a pop-up at Miami’s Freehand hotel in 2012, and it has since become a cocktail destination in multiple US cities. It has earned two James Beard Award nominations, and is No. 14 on a list of the world's top 50 bars.
More impressively, this venue looks more like a chill place you would find as a front porch in a Hamptons summer house or a cottage in Maine versus the over-hyped bells and whistles one typically finds at other rooftop venues in New York.
As more experiential hotels open in New York, we think this event venue is the first of many to come that will change the overall vibe of evenings outdoors.
