Best Rooftops in Midtown: Elsie Rooftop
Elsie Rooftop is located on Broadway and 39th Street, where Midtown South meets the Garment District. This rooftop is also just a few steps away from Times Square and Bryant Park. This stunning rooftop is open all year round with stylish seating options indoor and outdoor. We dined at Elsie Rooftop a few times in the past and even attended Bodvar’s National Rosé Day party here.
Elsie Rooftop is open from 5PM to 12AM on Wednesday and Thursday, 5PM to 2AM on Friday, 1PM to 2AM on Saturday and 1PM to 10PM on Sundays. Brunch is available starting at 1PM on the weekends.
Best Rooftops in Midtown: What to Order to Drink?
Vodka time is it? We started the day at one of the best rooftops in Midtown with a round of colorful, delicious cocktails, including the Elsie de Wolfe, Strawberry Rebel and Earl Grey Old Fashioned. We recommend the signature, namesake Elsie de Wolfe. This sparkling martini Stoli is made with vodka, cucumber, mint, lemon, rose water, and sparkling Rosé. If you are a tequila person, go for the Strawberry Rebel. This cocktail has tequila, cointreau, strawberry, lemon and Bodvar Rosé. If you are more of a bourbon fan, we recommend the Earl Grey Old Fashioned with angostura and orange bitters. You can’t go wrong with any cocktail at Elsie Rooftop, one of the best rooftops in Midtown.
Another one of our favorite cocktails at Elise Rooftop was The Sunset 18. This stunning drink ranges in color from a vibrant magenta to a deep purple. The Sunset 18 gets its natural color from Empress 1908 gin. We have prepared cocktails with Empress Gin a few times. Empress Gin is one of our favorite spirits at the moment and we served this spirit at our Halloween Brunch and NYE Party.
Best Rooftops in Midtown: What to Order for Dinner?
Cheese the day. Elsie Rooftop serves an upscale seasonal menu of delicious American bites. We started our meal with the Truffle Grilled Cheese, Thai Chicken Kabobs and Fries. We highly recommend the Grilled Cheese. It’s made with cheddar, gruyere, black truffle and sourdough bread. The sandwich is gooey and the black truffle will make this the best grilled cheese you’ll ever order. This was our favorite dish of the night. You might need to order more than one for the table. The Thai Chicken Kabobs with satay peanut sauce were also quite delicious and easy to share.
Slice to meet you. We also ordered the Double Sliders, Margherita Flatbread and Portobello Mushroom Sliders. Our favorite from this course was the flatbread. Bonus- it’s easy to share.
Scoop! There it is! We concluded our meal with a decadent Molten Chocolate Lava Cake with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. This was the perfect bite of sweetness for our group.
This year, stop by Elsie Rooftop, one of the best rooftops in Midtown. This stunning rooftop is stylish and sophisticated and open all year round.
