The Roof

THE ROOF

124 W 57th St
New York NY10019
(212) 707-8008

Sometimes on date night you want to rise above it all. Take your sweetheart to The Roof at the top of Viceroy New York and you’ll be master and mistress of all you survey. You’ll signal your honey right off that you’re in on something, as you lead the way down an industrial hallway that ends with a private elevator. Twenty-nine floors up you’ll find yourselves at a rooftop bar face to face with the iconic midtown skyline. Take a moment to get your bearings. That huge patch of Central Park beneath you is probably more open space than you’ve seen for a while. Grab a cozy seat on the terrace or the outdoor bar and luxuriate in the view. Should the weather prove uncooperative, you can seek shelter in the lounge. It’s as snug as a yacht, with brass, walnut, and leather upping the glamour. Since this bar is a Gerber Group production, you can be assured the staff is not hard on the eyes. The drinks menu goes deep, with scotches, rums, and whiskeys, but it’d be a shame not to take advantage of all the mixing mastery on hand. A Without Fear cocktail starts with Jameson Black Barrel whiskey and finishes with the tart intrigue of a liqueur made from fresh apricots. For your date, order a Spicy Paloma, a smooth blend of tequila, grapefruit soda, and Thai chilies. It makes your lips burn. Rarely a bad turn of events on date night.
