The lounge has 5,000 square feet of interior and exterior space. For those concerned about the onset of chilly weather, they will have heat lamps until time to cover the rooftop, but guests will still have access to the amazing views during the winter.
We made way our way down most of the cocktail list, some refreshing and fruity, some flavorful and strong – all delicious. At $16 a pop, it’s a small investment for the view that you’ll be getting. Try your hand at their signature drink, The Monarch, with silver rum, grapefruit juice, lavender bitters, and St. Germain. My personal favorite was the Gold Costa – whiskey, ginger syrup, lemon juice, and a hint of mezcal.
As Addison is a guru in the nightlife scene, with their portfolio of venues including the Ava Rooftop Lounge at Dream Hotel, Tonic Times Square, Inc Lounge at Time Hotel, and The Bar at Dream Hotel, it’s no surprise that he scored another homerun with the Monarch.
