Spring is undoubtedly here—which means it’s practically summer already, right?
If you’ve ever spent a summer in NYC you know that means al fresco everything. More specifically, rooftop happy hours every-damn-day. Gallow Green is one of the city’s best (and favorite) rooftop bars year-round and it’ll return to being it’s lush green oasis in just a couple of weeks!
During the winter months the space was transformed into The Lodge at Gallow Green (a wintry rooftop cabin, made to look like it was in the middle of a forest with pine trees surrounding it, creating a cozy mountainside escape). However, on April 1 they closed the doors to cabin to begin gearing up for the spring and summer when it turns into a Scottish train station overgrown with flowers, herbs and hanging vines. With plenty of greenery to enjoy, the popular rooftop hideaway will officially reopen on Saturday, April 20.
According to their press release, Gallow Green will offer an all-new seasonal selection of potent handcrafted cocktails, share plates, fresh pizzas, and weekend brunch by Executive Chef Pascal Le Seac’h. Seasonal cocktails will include Sleep No More, made with pea flower-infused vodka, elderflower and rosé cider; along with frozen drinks, wines, seasonal draft beers, and ciders. As for the food, you can expect to see pizzas, burgers, cheese plates, and charcuterie boards on the menu. Live music will also play on the weekends as part of their Sunset Sundays series.
The opening day will align with their annual Herb Festival, and the restaurant is already taking dinner reservations for April 20 and after.
