The Skylark Roof Deck, NYC’s premiere event space and bar, opened its door’s last night with a kick off to summer celebration.
Invited guests previewed the bar’s summer cocktail menu with drink offerings like the Caramelized Pineapple Mojito made with Rum, caramelized pineapple puree, mint and lime juice.

Guests also had the opportunity to taste items from the menu like lobster rolls, chicken tacos, shrimp pizza, and avocado on toast.

This roof top bar is open to the public Monday – Friday but closed for private events (it’s well known for weddings) during the weekends.
