The rooftop bar Penthouse808 is our latest discovery in Long Island City, Queens. It’s more than just a rooftop bar however. Penthouse808 also features a large lounge area, meaning that this place is even packed during the winter months. With a total space of over 7500 square feet, Penthouse808 also has an excellent restaurant with a Hawaiian-Asian inspired menu. Be sure to book a table well in advance if you want to have dinner here. It is a great spot to enjoy the wonderful views across the East River (click here for reservations).
As you can tell from the pictures, the views are truly incredible: especially if you are there around dusk and can watch the lights of Manhattan slowly come to life. For this there is really no better place to be than along the East River! Add a perfectly mixed cocktail or glass of wine and the evening is perfect!
Penthouse808 Rooftop Bar and Lounge in Queens is located right next to the Queensboro Bridge and features a covered lounge area as well as an outdoor rooftop bar.
The kitchen is truly first rate and in addition to unique fish creations and sushi (delicious!), also offers steaks. Prices start around $24. if you are going with a larger group, be sure to try the signature Penthouse808 cocktail “Volcanic Tiki”, a typical Hawaiian drink served in a large Tiki head!
