Could NYC ever have too many rooftop terraces?
Our answer: no way! And that’s good because there’s one is reopening right in the heart of the Fashion District and it has the ultimate beginning-of-summer vibes.
Sandbar Rooftop, on the 23rd Floor of the Hilton, is Hamptons-themed with beach decor like lifeguard chairs, hanging lounges, and swings created from reclaimed wine barrels (we love our swings here at Secret NYC)!
The rooftop first opened this fall, then closed for the winter, and is now reopening for the warm weather season on Thursday, March 25. It will then be open Thurs-Sat from 3-11 p.m, with an expanded schedule starting in April.
Their signature handcrafted cocktail list is designed by Sandbar’s house mixologist, with options like the “Ditch Plains” with Aperol, Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur, Sparkling Water, and Prosecco, or the “Banzai Pipeline” with Absolut Vodka, Rhubarb Syrup, Sandbar Sour Mix, Ginger Beer, and Ginger Ale.
Pair that with a pinsa-style pizza (Roman-style pizza featuring dough pushed by hand into a long oval shape) with toppings like caramelized onions and fresh ricotta or blistered tomatoes and peperoncini, and you’ve made for the perfect NYC evening.
It also boasts curated music playlists and nearly 360-degree views of Manhattan and the Empire State Building.
It’s reservation-only to maintain proper social distancing protocols, so nab yours on their website before it books up!
