Rooftop Bars in Hell’s Kitchen

Living at 555TEN’s Midtown West luxury rentals comes with a host of perks, but perhaps none as delightful as living around the corner from some of the city’s most sought-after rooftop lounges and bars. Whether it’s the lively Social Drink & Food, the chic Starchild, or the stunning High Bar NYC, residents can enjoy unforgettable evenings without straying too far from home.

Social Drink & Food | 570 Tenth Avenue

Perched atop the neon-lit Yotel Hotel in Midtown, Social Drink & Food offers a vibrant rooftop experience. The 7,000-square-foot terrace boasts 1960s-inspired decor, with colorful circle chairs and exotic dragon trees. Indulge in seasonal craft cocktails like rosewater martinis and chai-spiced old fashioneds, paired with Mediterranean street-style snacks like charred eggplant flatbreads and Moroccan-spiced nuts. This indoor-outdoor spot is perfect for soaking up the city views while savoring tasty drinks and bites.

But that’s not all — Social Drink & Food is set to host an exciting lineup of events this summer. Join them for a unique yoga brunch experience, featuring a 60-minute class led by Smiling Yogi, followed by a refreshing mimosa and brunch. Additionally, every Friday starting May 24, the rooftop will come alive with Sunset Disco Rooftop Parties, where you can enjoy amazing views of Times Square, fabulous food and drink, and good vibes, all while grooving to a live DJ.

Starchild | 305 West 48th Street

For those looking to continue their rooftop adventures with a more elevated, nightlife-focused experience, Starchild is the perfect next stop. This chic lounge boasts a retractable roof that allows for year-round enjoyment, but Starchild takes things to new heights — literally. Ascending 27 stories above Midtown, the bar offers stunning panoramic views of the city skyline, which can be enjoyed from both the climate-controlled interior and the open-air terrace, tastefully decorated with plush pillows and small mirrors adorning the walls. Starchild’s cocktail menu is equally impressive, with a diverse array of espresso martinis like The Jolt (Diplomatico Rum, Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur) and The Scorch (Tanteo Habañero, Patron Reposado), perfect for fueling up before hitting the dance floor. Complement your drinks with delectable bar snacks like chips and caviar or a classic Margherita pizza, and let the custom Funktion-One sound system carry you away, as DJs spin everything from classic house to Top 40 hits.

High Bar NYC | 346 West 40th Street

Just east of Hell’s Kitchen, High Bar NYC offers a stunning rooftop experience that’s worth venturing slightly outside the neighborhood for. This spacious lounge boasts a 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline, allowing guests to marvel at the city’s most famous landmarks. The interior is a work of art, with intricate geometric designs, walnut herringbone floors, and walls glimmering with custom laser-cut mercury mirror bricks. Luxuriate in stroke-painted velvet chairs while enjoying high-end cocktails like the Caribbean Cosmo, a piquant blend of Double Cross Vodka, Cointreau, hibiscus syrup, pineapple, fresh lime, and prosecco.

Relaxing nights in the sky-high lounges of Midtown West are just moments away for residents of these NYC luxury apartments for rent. Learn more and check on availability by contacting our leasing team.

Art on the High Line

The High Line is more than just a New York City park; it’s a piece of the city’s industrial history, repurposed to provide green space and enhance the urban environment. This unique elevated park invites locals and visitors to ascend and find respite amid the urban frenzy. As you step onto the walkway, get ready for an adventure, because there are delightful surprises at every turn — ever-changing art installations, seasonal flora, and breathtaking city views create a dynamic sensory experience.

For residents of the 555TEN Midtown rentals, the High Line serves as a natural corridor with direct access from the newly opened Moynihan Connector, an extension to the High Line that runs along 30th Street and leads into Moynihan Train Hall. Here, the luxury of urban living meets the wonder of nature, wrapped in the city’s creative spirit.

Constructed along a historic freight rail line, and thoughtfully integrating nature into the urban landscape, the High Line is a 1.45-mile city park emphasizing sustainability and biodiversity. The park — lined with greenery, including indigenous perennials, grasses, shrubs, and trees — cleverly incorporates elements of its past, including remnants of the old tracks. This design transforms the once-abandoned railway into a lush refuge within the city, offering a dynamic cultural platform and a space for New Yorkers and visitors to engage with nature and contemporary art.

Artworks, curated to complement the natural setting, dot the walkway, enhancing the visitor experience with sculptures, installations, and murals from established and emerging artists. Here are a few outstanding pieces:

Pause at Pamela Rosenkranz’s “Old Tree” at the Spur at 30th Street and 10th Avenue. This visually stunning 25-foot-tall red-and-pink electric sculpture, on display through fall 2024, mirrors the intricate branching systems of human anatomy and circulatory networks. “Old Tree” invites viewers to explore the profound connection between humanity and nature, symbolizing the ancient wisdom inherent in human evolution and envisioning a future where synthetic materials seamlessly integrate with the natural world.

At Little West 12th Street, you can find Kapwani Kiwanga’s “On Growth,” on view through October 2024. This mesmerizing sculpture features a fern encased in multifaceted dichroic glass, which captures and transforms light into a kaleidoscope of color. The piece references early terrariums used to transport and protect plants as they traveled from far-off places to Europe in the 19th century. It also reflects on the colonial history of botanical nurseries that shaped modern plant science and horticulture.

Displayed at 17th Street through August 2024, Cosima von Bonin’s “WHAT IF THEY BARK?” brings a touch of whimsy to the park. This installation features a quirky ensemble of fish rising above the park’s iconic 10th Avenue Square. These piscine performers, dressed in costumes, strike a pose as a band, complete with musical instruments. Perched atop the railing of the Sunken Overlook, these fishy figures seem to serenade visitors below with the gentle rhythms of the city’s heartbeat.
