A Massive New Rooftop Cocktail Bar Just Opened In Brooklyn

“Top of the Box” is normally a stunning NYC wedding venue, but now it’s opening up to the public for the first time ever as an amazing cocktail bar.

The clever name refers to the rooftop of The Box House Hotel in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The 10,000 square foot space features unobstructed panoramic views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island City.

Their wrap-around marble bar opened up for signature craft cocktails this summer on July 17th officially! It’s hours are: Wednesdays & Thursdays 6pm-11pm, Fridays 6pm-12:30 am, Saturdays 5pm-12:30am, and Sundays 1pm-9pm.


Since it’s an event space, the rooftop is designed for any weather, and has a fully retractable roof awning, heating, air-conditioning, and is completely encapsulated with glass sliding doors. So, you can enjoy the space in rain or shine this summer.

They are also opening up for special yoga sessions on the roof so you can take in the view while doing a downward dog. They are at 9am and 11am Friday-Sundays by YO BK. You can sign up for those classes on their website here.

Of course, safety measures and NYS outdoor dining precautions will be followed. At 10,000 square feet, it definitely seems like social distancing will be a little easier.

The Box House Hotel is located at 77 Box St in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
