Murray Hill, New York –
Fashionable patrons taking in the unobstructed view of the Empire State Building from this twentieth-floor hotspot will understand why Gansevoort Park Avenue Rooftop chose “always on top” as its motto.
Sleek and sexy, the space features floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty of sitting areas with suede sofas and wingbacks to accommodate the fashion-industry notables and upscale preppy partiers who gather to check each other out over bottle service.
Clutches of chic Europeans sipping expensive cocktails add just the right jet-set touch to an already swanky scene, complete with the requisite young professionals in tight t-shirts scoping out the beautiful ladies at the brown granite bar.
On warm nights, patrons flock to the spacious terrace to lounge on blue vinyl chaises by the illuminated pool, which features a mosaic of a vintage bathing beauty and is divided into indoor and outdoor sections, allowing guests to dip their toes in year round.
A narrow wraparound balcony bordering two sides of the venue features leather benches and glass floor panels with a dizzying view, while the private Blue Room one floor down offers a true VIP experience that includes exclusive sets spun by renowned DJs.
Stylish party-seekers looking for a combination of upscale vibe, breathtaking views, and a flirty clientele ready to mingle should definitely put this Park Avenue Rooftop on the top of the must-see list.
People in the fashion industry, Europeans, and artsy young professionals, early 20s to 30s.
Menu of sliders, small plates, and entrées ranging from Kobe pigs in a blanket to fish and chips. Kitchen closes at 11pm.
Sliders and small plates $9–$16, entrées $18–$32, desserts $9+. Beer $12, wine $13+/glass or $60/bottle, cocktails $15, bottle service $325+.
Casual chic: jeans, tight-fitting graphic t-shirts, mod dresses, heels.

Exhale, the hotel’s spa, is a great place for a pre-party pamper session, followed by dinner at Les Halles (411 Park Avenue South), Anthony Bourdain’s Michelin-rated brasserie.
