Went twice. December was cold but pretty. In May, the top was open and offered a fabulous view and nice breeze. Drinks were typical. Seating is spare so grab a stool at the window if possible. Loved the ambience.

Best place to enjoy a view of the Empire State Building. Drinks aren’t cheap. Typical NYC prices. Limited bar snacks.
