Rooftop Bars in Hell’s Kitchen

May 2024

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.
