I was reading in Eater NY, the team that created Black Top Craft Burgers & Beer will be opening a new rooftop lounge called The Lookup this spring at the Metro Hotel located at 45 W 35th St. You might know Black Tap from the insane milkshakes they create.
Julie Mulligan, Chris Barish and Aristotle Hatzigeorgiou chose bartender, Pamela Wiznitzer to create the cocktail list for The Lookup. I am reading there will be bar bites like pressed sandwiches and an upscale Rosé shrimp cocktail. It is reported some of the custom cocktails will include a rosé sangria, a carbonated tequila cocktail with grapefruit, a whisky cocktail with red wine and a blackberry infused wine and an Ancho Reyes Verde with pink sea salt.
Interesting to note, based upon an article in the NY Post, The Metro Hotel is undergoing a revamp of sorts and will be renamed The Kixby. This rooftop lounge will include views of the Empire State Building.
The neighborhood is great. Located between Koreatown and Midtown Manhattan there are a number of apartments for sale in the area:
