Haven Rooftop Opening for the Summer Season (1)

What’s better than visiting Times Square, the Crossroads of the World? How about partying above it at Haven Rooftop, a beautiful new bar and lounge on the top of The Sanctuary, an ultra-trendy luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Times Square? My girlfriend and I did just that the other night for the opening of their summer rooftop season.

As soon as we exited the elevator we were greeted by two extremely sexy hostesses.  The view – and I don’t mean of the hostesses – was beautiful (and the hostesses weren’t too shabby either).  Haven Rooftop has two large bars and ample space to walk around and enjoy your designer cocktails, and the cocktails were excellent! We also sampled some of their food offerings and yep, they were damn tasty!

I really liked the diversity of the crowd too. Very eclectic, from Wall Street looking execs in their expensive suits to Soho Art looking grunge folks, with everything in between. The guest DJ from Ibiza was spinning some great stuff and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. I loved the futuristic aspect given to the costumes of the models and hostesses – did I mention how sexy they were? Oh, and there was also an artist body-painting two beautiful women in the midst of everything.

If you want to have a great time partying above the crowds of Times Square at a place with a fantastic view and beautiful people then look no further.  Oh, and if you need a place to stay and your wallet can handle it, definitely check out The Sanctuary Hotel. It’s a gorgeous place!
