The possibilities are truly endless.

Raindrop, Drop Top, Catch us on the Rooftop

Featured Story / March 10, 2017 / No Comments.

giphyIt might only be March, but we got spring weather on the brain. We’re over the après ski scene and the “hot cocktails.” Give us a frozen margarita or give us death! Or we could just go to any of these rooftop bars in NYC. That works too.

With the help of Travel + Leisure, we picked out some of the best rooftop bars in the city to enjoy in the upcoming warm weather.

1) Refinery Rooftop
Their extensive cocktail menu was developed by German booze alchemist, Alex Ott. Located on top of the Refinery Hotel, you can sip vibrant drink and enjoy a savory meal created by Jeffrey Forrest (winner of Food Network’s Chopped) while gazing at the Empire State Building. The terrace is lined with porch swings and has a retractable glass roof (drinks are flowing rain or shine) and fireplaces for those chilly nights. This rooftop bar is hopping long after summer fades.

2) The Rooftop Lounge at Pod 39
Tacos and tequila, baby. Spotted Pig veterans April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman bring their taco expertise to this beautiful, brick-swathed courtyard. International hipsters crowd around soaring terra cotta columns with delicious, fresh fruit drinks in hand. With soaring views and lots of tequila, you really can’t go wrong.

3) Bar 54 at Hyatt Times Square
Bar 54 towers over Times Square creating breathtaking views of the cityscape. The views also stretch to downtown’s One World Trade Center. It’s New York’s highest cocktail lounge (as of now).

4) Loopy Doopy
Don’t let the name fool you, this place is legit. The name comes from Sol LeWitt’s massively psychedelic art installation festooned over the Conrad Hotel’s lobby. We have three important words for: Prosecco. On. Tap. With views of Lady Liberty, sailboats and the Hudson River, this sundeck bar has it all.

5) Penthouse 808
We’re thinking this might be the only penthouse we can afford to spend time in. It’s located in Long Island City’s Ravel Hotel with views of the Queensboro bridge, the Silvercup Studios sign, Manhattan’s cityscape and East River. Sushi and Pacific-inspired cocktails create a Euro-pop vide. And they have live DJ’s and clubby banquettes.

6) Level R
Located at the Empire Hotel across from the Lincoln Center, it’s a Fashion Week hot spot. With cabana style furnishings spread over two terraces, you’ll feel like nothing less than a super model. The menu was created by the famed China Grill and their state of the art sound system is put on full volume by house music DJ’s each weekend.

7) Skylark
Sweeping views of the Hudson River, Empire State Building and Times Square make this bar unforgettable. Plus, mixologist Johnny Swet puts a fun twist on Prohibition-era drinks and there’s a “Mad Men”-mod lounge downstairs. And even more importantly, they serve summertime approved frozen margaritas.

8) The Jane Rooftop
Formerly RuPau’s crash pad at Jane Hotel, it was opened to the public in 2014 (it was formerly a private event space only). Unlike the clubby after-hours lounge downstairs, the brick-clad terrace is must for daytime revelers. A Georgian-style bar with checkered floors and Persian rugs is exactly what you need to switch up your rooftop bar game. But make sure to call first, it’s reservations only.


Michiganites: Do Some Good By Drinking Some Good Brews

Featured Story / December 26, 2016 / No Comments.

screen-shot-2016-12-14-at-12-07-43-pmIt’s not too late to do something charitable this holiday season. Like drink some beers. According to Thrillist, Stephen Roginson, owner of Batch Brewing Company, started a non-profit program called Feelgood Tap that let’s people donate to good causes just for drinking beer.

Here’s how it works: Bars, breweries, and restaurants can pick any beer from their menu and raise the price by $1. When customers order that beer, that extra dollar goes to Feelgood Tap who then gives the donation to local and regional charities with a community, culture, and wellness mission. Pretty nice, huh? If you’re feeling charitable this week, stop by any of the participating bars, breweries, or restaurants below and drink up!

Or if you’re an establishment owner and you want to get in on the action, email info@feelgoodtap.org for more information.

Summer City Sips: Philadelphia

Uncategorized / June 4, 2016 / No Comments.

rooftop-seating-680uwIt just so happens, that around mid-April each year, we start to get this feeling from deep within our souls. It’s a warmth–a bright yearning for social interaction and exposure to sunlight as we begin our ascent out of hibernation. It’s springtime.

So, thus begins our spring installment of City Sips. Over the next 9 weeks, we’ll be touring the good ole U S of A via beer gardens, outdoor bars, and rooftop bars. Essentially, we’ll be giving you a killer guide to outdoor R&R with a glass of sangria in hand. So, commence that drumroll, cause next up is……..


Stopping by Philadelphia this summer? Looking to grab some food or a drink? Revolution House is a must-see in this beautiful city. Located on the corner of South 2nd Street and Market Street, this bar fits right into the “Old City” scene while simultaneously appealing to the modern customer. Revolution House has two levels, the second of which features a large outdoor patio looking out onto the city. Tinted wood paneling, textured walls, and a massive vintage chandelier add to the rustic atmosphere customers enjoy while visiting.

Whether you’re looking for beer, a cocktail, or a pizza, Revolution House offers great service and quality food and drinks. Add that to the stellar location and the unbeatable atmosphere and you couldn’t find a better option for an afternoon drink or the start to a night out.


FDA Requires Calorie Count on Cocktail Menus

Our Stories / April 12, 2015 / No Comments.

Screen-Shot-2014-12-03-at-1.24.32-PMAre you the type of person who appreciates a quality cocktail menu while dining out? So are we, but things are about to change. Without even questioning the caloric value, you probably order an average of three fruity drinks during your time at a restaurant. No shame—who wouldn’t? They’re made to be delicious. Still, by next November, the FDA will make these nutritional values more apparent; chain restaurants with 20 or more locations will be required to list an item’s number of calories on both their food and drink menus.

“Alcoholic beverages are a key contributor to the calories Americans are consuming, and most of the time when people have a drink they have absolutely no idea what its caloric impact is,” says Margo Wootan of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Wootan’s point is accurate for all us; sometimes without knowing we consume an entire meal’s worth of calories just in alcoholic beverages alone. Not concerned with nutrition? Fair enough. You can bypass the FDA calorie placement simply by ordering a drink at the bar or one that isn’t listed on the official menu.

Both a blessing and a curse, these new guidelines will hopefully spark a healthy movement among those of us always ordering off of the cocktail menu. Either way, after your first two drinks, you probably won’t give a care in the world about your caloric intake anyway. But what do you think—did the FDA make the right decision?
