A large roof deck for warm evening cocktails. It does offer the (as advertised) sweeping views of our lovely lower midtown skyline.
A vast expansive space with little alcoves that offer spaces that offer the opportunity for conversation away from the masses.
Weeknight evening find this spot filled with the suited after work crowd. Weekend afternoons into evening offer a more relaxed atmosphere.

Navigating through the crowd can be daunting - knowing which area you are meeting friends ahead of time is helpful.

Pick your spot - and stick with it is my suggestion.

Pros: out - of -doors, what else do you need?

Cons: give yourself 5 minutes when it's time to leave.

Met up with some old and new friends on a Wednesday night after work. The staff was very friendly, drinks were fine, but since still early in the summer... got a bit cool outside early and there were no propane heaters like other venues to sit underneath. I would go back again, once the weather warms up a bit more.

I stopped by after work with a few friends.... It wasnt too crowded at that point, and our waitress was very prompt and friendly. We decided on mojitos ( a little pricey- but worth it), and just enjoyed the scenery, the music ( the speakers could be upgraded a bit) and of course, the conversation. I was also pleased that I was able to purchase a cigar right there on the roof. The only downfall was that there was no food available or even allowd- Other than that I would definately recommend this place for anyone who wants a real taste of the manhattan scene!

Pros: Great view of the city- mixed drinks and social scene

Cons: no food allowed

.

Took a good 20 min to get the elevator ride up/down. When it's less crowded it's easy to get drinks and find a place to hang out. When the crowds come, it feels like there's no place to go and no way to get to a bar or waitress. The view is nice, but the tall fences take away from it a little, I guess it's a NYS law b/c all the roof tops have them. Drinks are a little pricey, but again, NYC.

Pros: Being outside

Cons: Gets crowded

One of the best rooftop bars in Manhattan. There are few places I would rather be on a cool summer dusk. The Sapphire tonic compliments the city skyline perfectly.

We had dinner there before we went to Chill Lounge for the real party! The food was real good and the service was great!

The best part about this place is the view. Other than that, it's standard midtown after-work fare. Drinks are reasonably priced, the clientele is such you can bring your entire office without anyone feeling too out-of-place. Go with your coworkers, but you probably won't impress your date.

We went on a Thursday night after work. Everyone was dressed fairly nicely. The rooftop is packed so that you can't even walk to the bar to get a $15 cocktail without being spilled on. While the drinks were strong and a good size, the actual rooftop wasn't nice enough to warrant the $15 pricetag. It's nice to be outside, but the view is obstructed and the place itself is a barebones outdoor space. There's definitely a frat party feel to it, from the line out front, hand stamping bouncer, to being sardined in one spot all night.

Pros: Outdoor bar

This is a great place to spend a summer night. The bouncers can be annoying, and seem a little unnecessary for such a small place, but once you make it up there, it's a nice atmosphere. Very laid back, good music to vibe to, plently of places to sit and lounge.

I'm sure the management at the Shelburne are regretting the day they decided to let the "rare view" company take over their rooftop. I rented this rooftop a couple years ago for my birthday party to near universal praise from the guests. Disappointing is not a strong enough word to describe how I felt in re-visiting it last night...

Basically one of the nicest outdoor commercial rooftops in mid-town Manhattan has been taken over and renovated by an entity with neither class nor imagination. There is no diplomatic way to put it, from the thuggish "bouncers" who stamp your hand in the lobby and the awful, awful music (imagine Carrot Top's Ipod on random being played loudly) to the overpriced drinks ($15 martinis, $9 beers) and slow service, this place is NOT WORTH THE VIEW.

It's the perfect way to spend an evening in the city! The only minus I can think of is it's closed when there's inclement weather (rain).

I felt compelled to write citysearch after the horrible experience I had tonight. At 7pm on a weekday, I joined my friend in line only to be told after waiting that, since we arrived at separate times, I had to begin waiting separately at the end of the line. I began the lining process again. (Meanwhile, the bouncer let another customer in who skipped straight to the front of the line). I rejoined the line again, passing the time with another in our party who had shown up late. When our turn came up after about 25 min, the bouncer took me out of line again, saying that I had not gone to the tail end of the line. I left. There is no excuse for treatment like this. What a disappointment after looking forward to celebrating a birthday party here with friends. Please seriously consider taking your business elsewhere.

We went on a Thursday night at 7:30 pm and the line was 50 people deep. The bouncers were awful - they need to be fired! Rude and arrogant are understatements. We waited in line for an hour - and for the last 25 minutes we were stuck in this little hallway that had no air (95 degrees out) - I thought I was going to die. We asked the bouncer to keep the door open to the lobby so we could get a breeze and he refused - I really thought someone was going to pass out. When we got in the elevator to go up finally there was room for at least 5 more people so I asked the bouncer to let some of the people in who were dying in the hall and he said, "Give me one good reason" - arrghh

Pros: view rocks

Wow was I impressed. My friends and I heard about this place and we decided to give it a whirl.
WOW. Great view, but most important great people. good music, (a little loud,) spoke to the DJ he agreed and turned it down a notch. Drinks a bit expensive, but the same as any hotel around town. Definitely coming back.

This is a great place to take out of towners -- with an amazing skyline view... the Drinks are way overpriced ($26 for 2 Mojito[s]). You feel like your at a college frat party, when they stamp your hand to get in the elevator.

I'd say they need to open a second bar on the other side of the roof the wait was just long enough when I heard the bill amount I was like REALLY?! but it is a hotel bar and your paying for the view!!!

WOW, WHAT A VIEW -- I think I've said that a few times here... but thats why you're there... this place is very sex & the city-ish (looking like Sam's roofdeck party)

ok, and in the end it was a pretty strong drink too.

If you want to be harassed by a senile bouncer with a penlight, then go to Rare View. As part of his bar closing routine, the bouncer came up to our table and informed us it was time to head out (we were 5 out of the 80+ people there). After acknowledging him and saying we'd be on our way, he stood over our table flashing his penlight in our faces. When asked why he was doing this, he proceeded to shout at us and continued shining his light in our faces. When I spoke to the manager about this bizarre and rude behavior his response was an indifferent "You can tell whomever you want, but it really won't matter." Given the number of rooftops in New York, don't waste your time with this one unless you like paying $13 for an okay drink and a huge dose of harassment.
