Now Open: The Roof

Spring — it’s so close, you can almost taste it. And when outdoor terrace weather finally hits, any day now, there’s a new place to visit: The Roof, atop the Viceroy New York.

The Story: Late last year, the Gerber Group opened Kingside, the Viceroy hotel’s street-level diner-style restaurant, bringing another eatery to recently revamped West 57th. Now, the same group is opening The Roof on the top floor, just in time for spring.

The Look: Up on the Viceroy’s 29th floor, The Roof has both an indoor lounge and a spacious outdoor terrace. Designed by noted firm Roman and Williams, the interior is meant to suggest a classic yacht, all rich wood and brass detailing.

The Drinks: Beer, wine and cocktail fans will be well-served at the Viceroy. Go for a classic — let’s say a Sidecar now, a Moscow Mule when the summer hits — or opt for a house invention such as the Monkey Business, with Monkey Shoulder Scotch, Aperol, Cointreau and lemon.

The Scene: If there’s one rule in New York, it’s that drinkers will find a great rooftop bar. Expect an after-work crowd and then late-night bar-hoppers to discover The Roof, and make full use of the terrace; even if it gets a bit chilly, there are heat lamps and wool blankets (and plenty of whiskey) to keep you warm.
