This lovely bar sits on top of the Peninsula Hotel. It affords a 180 degree view high up above Fifth Avenue and is stunning. The drinks are generous and well made. The bartender Alan and the server Salvatore are exceptional. It is a must stop while in New York

Salon de Ning is extraordinary rooftop lounge atop The Penisula Hotel that is relaxed compared to high energy spots about town. It is cool and classy with a kind staff that never disappoints and tries to accommodate everyone, even on the busiest of evenings.

I couldn't believe it when my daughter suggested that we visit the outdoor rooftop bar at The Peninsula at 6:30 on a winter evening when it was ~30 degrees outside. But she assured me that it would be worth it. Very powerful red colored heat lamps are placed adjacent to each table and cast a warm glow of heat and... More

........for a pre-dinner drink or a post-shopping recovery. The place opens 5 pm sharp. You can´t use the elevator to reach the rooftop before that. Once there you immediately feel the nice, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. If the season permits you can use the outside terrace. Inside there are not too many tables but plenty of space around the bar.... More

If there was a 4.5 star option, that's what this place would be and ONLY because of the price of the cocktails. This bar is amazing! The views.. oh my gosh, just breathtaking! Our bartender was phenomenal and so friendly!! We met great Italian people outside and swapped phones to take pictures for each other-- just the cutest/hottest little spot!... More

The first 2 evenings of our stay allowed for outdoor seating and provided a fabulous view of the city from the 21st floor location. The music was cool and drinks generous.

Friends took us here for early pre-dinner cocktails . Fantastic views of 5th avenue from the roof terrace. We had our 3 teenagers with us which was fine. Staff were very pleasant, not overly friendly but efficient. There are not many roof top bars of this quality that accept teenagers in NYC. You must get there by 5:00pm as this... More

Nice service, amazing views and rooftop outdoor area, worth the visit. The bar indoors is a bit too narrow but it´s ok.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
