Best of New York: Mad 46 Rooftop

Mad 46 Rooftop Lounge, The Roosevelt Hotel | 45 E 45th St, New York, NY 10017

Recently renovated & looking freaking FAB, Mad 46 Rooftop Lounge takes the cake for my favorite after work happy hour spot. Mad 46 is located on the 19th floor of the Roosevelt Hotel, and it's nothing like the ordinary Manhattan rooftop. As you know, I am spending my summer checking out every trending rooftop and NOTHING is quite like this. Mad 46 is H U G E, the amount of outdoor space and 360 views of Manhattan are incredible. Unlike many "happy hour" spots (don't want to throw anyone under the bus), Mad 46 Rooftop's food is really good! They have a great light bites and happy hour menu. Normally, you would think Midtown might not have that much to offer, but you are wrong! 

The look is very uptown suit and tie, but the vibe is downtown casual and cool. The house mixed music (and some really fun throw backs!) will have you head nodding thought the evening. My absolute favorite part of this rooftop is when the sun starts to set and all of the colored lights come on + the city skyline illuminates front row and center. This review is based upon my actual experiences at this location, happy hour is where it's at. The crowd was mostly business professionals and large groups looking for a good time & to enjoy a few cocktails after work. 

We enjoyed a few pitchers of caipirinha (which was out-of-this world good), flat bread pizza, homemade guac, and these veggie pot stickers. Our service was amazing, even the bartender was a hoot and really entertaining. All around, Mad 46 is one of the best trending rooftops in Manhattan for happy hour.
