New York City’s newest rooftop at the Le Meridian New York, held its grand opening on Monday, May 9th.
Upon arrival to Life Rooftop, I was greeted with a complimentary wine from the bar and was immediately taken aback by the stunning vistas of Central Park during golden hour. As the evening progressed guests enjoyed live music, food and drink and a presentation of the lounge’s signature drink a Rope Hanger Punch, which consists of rum, grand Marnier, lime and a bottle of Veuve Cliquot.
Perched 29 stories atop Le Meridian New York, Life Rooftop offers guests a variety of colorful cocktails, curated bites, and astonishing views. Guests were treated to executive chef Anastacia Song’s menu which feature pub style pretzels, charcuterie, and a variety of dips. Additionally, Life’s extensive bar menu features a variety of tropical inspired cocktails including a Rita Hayworth, Tropical Nymph and my personal favorite, a spicy Paloma with Jalapeno infused Tequila. The rooftop will transform from a lounge to a livelier atmosphere as sunset turns into evening. Life Rooftop was designed to be the ultimate escape above it all, where you can relax, unwind and enjoy your day outdoors rain or shine.
Life Rooftop will be open from Tuesday-Sunday beginning in June, with extended evening hours on the weekends. Check out their website and menu below!
