The Press Rooftop Lounge is the “must see, can’t miss” hot spot perched high atop the hotel. It is here where masses of young professionals and tourists alike gather to imbibe, and to soak up the atmosphere of the gorgeous city skyline and the vibrant colors of sunset overlooking The Hudson.

An impressive drink menu features distinctive handcrafted cocktails, beer and wine by the glass, as well as small bites – a match made in heaven. The Press Lounge’s signature cocktail, the Dauphin, screams originality and finesse, to the pleasure of its thirsty patrons.
