Gerber Group have announced the opening of The Roof, an alluring lounge and outdoor terrace crowning the top of Viceroy New York (124 West 57th Street), the recently opened luxury retreat in Midtown Manhattan. Enhancing the hotel’s highly regarded food and beverage program, The Roof will supplement Kingside, its street-level bar and restaurant, providing discerning revellers with a top-tier nightlife experience nestled above the bustling and iconic 57th Street.
“Following the success of our bar and restaurant Kingside, we are excited to introduce The Roof at Viceroy New York,” said Scott Gerber, Principal and CEO of Gerber Group. “With incredible views of Central Park, a luxurious aesthetic and great cocktails, The Roof is bound to become one of the best year-round destinations in Midtown.”
Situated on the hotel’s 29th floor, The Roof offers guests a perch to take in the city’s energy and soaring views of Central Park. Fashioned by renowned design firm Roman and Williams, the space evokes the aesthetic of a luxury yacht complete with ipe floors, brass details, custom walnut-and-leather sofas and thoughtfully curated images of sky, sea and clouds by famed photographer Dalton Portella.
“With walnut ceilings, custom leather sofas accented with caramel-coloured woods, and brass details, The Roof is the clubhouse of the spaces, all clad in iroko. Top it off with the most inspiring, not to mention romantic, view of the city you can imagine! This is the perfect spot to take in New York’s energy from a luxurious perch,” said Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams.
The Roof’s outdoor terrace is an aerial destination that will be open year round. Heat lamps and wool blankets will offer guests a warm and luxurious respite that can be admired in style, even in the colder months.
The menu features an expansive collection of small-batch spirits, regionally brewed craft beers, global wine offerings and a selection of classic and modern cocktails that highlight market fresh ingredients such as the GG Manhattan, Spicy Paloma and Sidecar F1. Small plates from Kingside include The Burger with homemade American cheese, pickles and special sauce, Charcuterie Board and Grilled 3 Cheese.
The Roof at Viceroy New York is open daily from 3pm – 4am.
