Summer in New York City is all about enjoying outdoor spaces, and Rose Hill Rooftop at HGU New York is officially open for business. Located in the NoMad district, the hotel’s terrace is a popular meeting point for lovers of artisan cocktails. Enjoy the warm air while sipping an Endless Summer, made with gin, vermouth, Campari and pineapple; a Baliska made with vodka, strawberry, lemon, sugar and basil; or a namesake Rose Hill made with tequila, triple sec, lime, hibiscus and rose.
The drink menu is augmented by a summer dining menu including lovely small-plate, warm-weather dishes such as the Sunflower Salad with a blend of cucumber, tomato, red onions, candied sunflower seeds, sunflower oil, red wine and arugula. Or, sample the flatbreads with toppings such as apricot and prosciutto, fig and Stilton or citrus salmon. Be sure to check the hotel website for updates on the summer music series, pop in to enjoy sunrise yoga hosted in partnership with Solace Gym or take in evening screenings of classic black-and-white films.
