Nice view of the Empire SB, cocktails were not so tasty and expensive (but in the average of NYC) and the personell could be more friendly. Nice location.

Let's be honest. The view is great, but it is not really worth the money if you work in high rise offices in the city. I went with friends but I live around NYC, so nothing special.

Located on the roof top of the Marriott Pulse Timeshare Hotel, this is an oasis of a bar that is a snap to visit and to enjoy a great outdoor view of the city at night. Otherwise, it is just average in its category
