Nothing says luxury and style like a sun-drenched roof deck overlooking New York City, especially for residents of the 88 & 90 Lexington Avenue condos. The expansive roof deck at 88 and 90 Lex offers incredible views of Gramercy and the Flatiron District, as well as many of New York’s most recognizable landmarks, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the New York Life Building, and One World Trade Center. This roof deck serves as an extension of home, creating exciting possibilities for relaxing and entertaining steps from Madison Square Park. And also located around this lively public green space are a number of hotels, restaurants, and bars in gorgeous settings with their own views stretching from Gramercy to Lower Manhattan. For a city escape that’s yet another extension of your home, be sure to zip on up to one of the following rooftop decks, all located just footsteps from the new condos for sale at 88 and 90 Lex.
230 Fifth Rooftop Bar | 230 Fifth Avenue
Enjoy brunch and cocktails in the beauty of New York City’s largest rooftop garden. On Saturdays and Sundays, there’s an abundant and unlimited brunch buffet, featuring breakfast favorites, salads, and a grilling station to satiate those summertime cravings. Or come back at dusk to enjoy a refreshing cucumber and gin mojito as you watch the skyline twinkle. This multi-floor space is open year-round, thanks to a fully enclosed penthouse bar and lounge and the hardworking heaters that will keep you warm during the cooler months.
Roof at Park South | 125 East 27th Street
For critically acclaimed eats, luscious libations, and unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, visit Roof at Park South, a new rooftop experience at the peak of the Park South Hotel, featuring cocktails by beverage director Ted Kilpatrick and unique menus from the James Beard award-winning chef Tim Cushman. Enjoy an upscale take on a summer favorite by diving into a wagyu beef burger or satisfy your sweet tooth with a blueberry-sugar funnel cake. The drinks are the real stars at Roof at Park South, however, where one-of-a-kind creations like the Swamp Water—a concoction made from avua cachaca, chartreuse, pineapple, and lime—make summertime even sweeter.
Hotel Giraffe | 365 Park Avenue South
The Rooftop Garden at Hotel Giraffe is a seasonal delight, providing a lovely and relaxing atmosphere for enjoying sunset sips during the warmer months. This fully furnished space is open to hotel guests at all times—and to the public on Mondays through Saturdays—for Italian-inspired entrees and small plates, including homemade pastas, crostini, and mouthwatering pizza prepared in a brick oven imported directly from Modena.
La Birreria at Eataly | 200 Fifth Avenue
Located atop Eataly, the brainchild of renowned chef and restaurateur Mario Batali, is La Birreria. This rooftop restaurant and microbrewery is a MUST for food and beer lovers, who can take the elevator upstairs from the spacious European-inspired market to enjoy cask ales brewed just footsteps away. La Birreria also plays host to a number of seasonal pop-up restaurants, and this summer, guests can enjoy seafood classics like oysters, swordfish, and more, compliments of SABBIA, the Italian seaside concept currently bringing Mediterranean favorites to this lavish rooftop overlooking Madison Square Park.
The weather has been perfect, which means it’s time to hit those roof decks! For more information on 88 & 90 Lex, and to inquire about availability, visit 88and90Lex.com.
