Party Earth Sky Room Review

The Scene

Sky Room in New York's Hell's Kitchen is steps from Time's Square but feels worlds away. Check into this swanky NYC rooftop lounge with Party Earth.

Once past the velvet ropes and up the elevator, chic patrons find themselves at Sky Room, one of NYC’s highest rooftop bars where the cocktails are as fine as the views.

The expansive bi-level venue is composed of multiple rooms featuring plenty of private VIP tables and open dance areas, though most of the dapper guests who show up early for Happy Hour hit the glass-topped bar in the Main Lounge first.

Long, coffee-colored banquettes face the windows covering one side of the first floor, but those in the know make for the stairs to the Top Lounge, where even wider views leave older suited gentleman and their designer dress-wearing dates speechless.

Low ottomans and small white tables line one side of the second level, each stocked with buckets begging to be filled with high-priced champagne. A retractable roof makes this area usable year round, but the biggest draw is the opposing outdoor space, decked out with pristine white daybeds where guests can snack on salmon toast and sip fruit-infused cocktails as the sun reflects off the Empire State Building.

A cover charge takes effect after 10pm Thursdays–Saturdays, when DJs hit the decks (also spinning Wednesdays with no cover) and turn up danceable beats from hip-hop and Top 40 to random head thumpers that draw a solid crowd of pretty people willing to pony up for the privilege.

It’s a stone’s throw from the tourist madness of Time’s Square, but Sky Room promises a heavenly escape from kitsch.

Tip from Adriana:

See who’s on the schedule for Jet Set Thursdays, when Sky Room books hot international DJs to go with their hot international clientele.

    Outdoor cabanas equipped with TVs.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Small menu of delectable snacks including salmon toast, thin-crust pizza, buffalo satay, and royal falafel. Brunch buffet on weekends.

    Drink and bottle specials available most nights.

    Beer $8, wine $10/glass or $60−$90/bottle, well drinks $10, cocktails $15, bottle service and party packages $250−$900.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Trendy and dress to impress: Armani suits, sleek button-downs, designer dresses, LBDs, sky-high heels.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Every night has a special and tends to draw a good crowd, but Thursdays through Saturdays see the most traffic.

  • Close By

    Paramount Bar (235 West 46th Street) is another swanky hotel spot, this one located on the ground floor of the nearby Paramount Hotel. It attracts both well-off hotel guests and trendy area professionals with a classy, old-school New York ambiance.

Amazing Experience
Pankhuree S. Nov 11, 2013
It is a great place for weekend partying. You get to enjoy an awesome view of the Empire State Building, feel the clean crisp air of New York at the roof top and dance to groovy numbers while getting tipsy in the lounge. The lounge is pretty classy!
Great space in NYC
Nicholas L. Mar 18, 2013
In a city of over eight million people, Sky Room is a great space where you can be up close and personal while still having the freedom to roam around. The indoor/outdoor, multilevel lounge provides great views of the city and, when the weather is right, hosts some of the best outdoor space to party in all of the city. Taking an elevator up from the ground floor, you are thrust into Sky Room where you can grab a drink at the bar or sit in of the many lounge areas and wait to be served. The prices for food and drink are about what you would expect for a rooftop lounge in Midtown West, so there is much room to complain. The atmosphere and decor create an upscale, chic vibe, as if you yourself owned a rooftop penthouse in Manhattan and the place is often filled with well dressed, professional types looking to unwind. Overall, a great place to go with a group, as it can accommodate many without feeling stuffy.
