In efforts to make the best out of the remainder of my time in New York City, I have decided to party at all the places that I was excited about partying at before I moved here. One such place is the rooftop at the Empire Hotel.
I have heard many good things about this place so I just had to go myself to experience it. First of all, last night was one of those rare October evenings where it was about 75 degrees at 10pm, so it was the perfect night to take advantage of a rooftop lounge before winter comes soon. My friend and I got there on the earlier side to ensure a table and not waiting in line.
When we got upstairs, it was expectedly close to empty. As time passed by however, the place began filling up. The view of the city from the rooftop here is UNREAL! It was truly one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. And looking down at the beautifully lit and happening Lincoln Center added to the charm.
We met a lot of interesting people last night. And when I say interesting, I mean interestingggg if ya know what I mean lol. There was definitely something missing though. Ah! Light bulb lit in my brain. It was Yom Kippur - all of the hot Jewish men were missing! Makes sense, makes sense. Oh well - it was still fun.
I am sure if you're a New Yorker, you've probably already been here so I am not going to recommend it. It's almost like suggesting a New Yorker to visit the Empire State Building. BUT, if you are not a resident of the city and have intentions of visiting during warm weather, I highly recommend this venue. Glad I finally got to come here and experience it for myself. Next time, I'll be sure not to come during the high holidays ;) Ciao!
