The nightlife scene in NYC has a classy newcomer! It’s called Lovage Rooftop NYC, a 37 stories high rooftop bar and lounge in Midtown West. It has 360 degree views of the city, covering Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Freedom Tower, the Hudson River, and the Empire Stare Building. I went there recently for cocktails and dinner, and loved it. The waitresses are attentive and friendly, and the venue itself is quite spacious. The glass roof, the comfortable couches, and the classy lighting are impressive. The venue also plays a lively mix of current Top 40 tunes. It’s a great place to start and end the evening.
An evening always starts off well with a nice lineup of cocktails. No problem with that at Lovage Rooftop NYC! We ordered the Kiwi Kolada, the Caribbean Cosmo, the Hula Hurricane, the Havana Daiquiri, the Mahalo, and the Cancun Swizzle. The first 3 cocktails are sweet and light while the last 3 are more robust and smoky. The cocktail menu is certainly innovative and offers something for everyone.
Next up, we ordered small plates from the venue’s newly launch food menu. We started off with a tomato flatbread and french fries. Both dishes tasted so fresh and flavorful. Then, we ordered chicken bites and oxtail tacos. They packed the perfect mix of crunch and meat. Michelin-famed Chef Alex Wise has done an incredible job with this eclectic menu!
Lovage Rooftop NYC is located at 350 West 40th Street and is open Sunday-Wednesday from 5PM-2AM and Thursday-Saturday from 5PM-4AM. This is one rooftop that should definitely be on your radar!
