The 230 5th Rooftop Bar is definitely one of our favorite locations in the city. Its perfect location at 5th Avenue near 27th Street, right near the Flatiron Building in Flatiron District, makes it even better. This is mainly due to the amazing view that you get from the rooftop bar.
230 Fifth Avenue Rooftop
A rooftop bar in New York on two levels
The bar consists of 2 levels: the first is the level with huge panoramic windows and a lounge atmosphere. Everything is very plush and made to be comfy. The views from here are truly sensational.
On the weekends they offer great brunch specials during the day. At night the rooftop bar is a place to have a couple of drinks, dance and enjoy the view.
An amazing view
One floor above the inside area of the bar, is the actual rooftop bar. The space is complete with palm trees and comfortable seating opportunities scattered throughout. The views of the Empire State Building and the golden dome of the New York Life Insurance Company Building are one-of-a-kind.
The sounds of the city, combined with the relaxing lounge music, make this bar the perfect place to unwind after a day of sightseeing. Unfortunately, the cocktails are only average, and expensive (generally around USD 15). The dress code is casual chic. Not hats for the men.
