Blue Ribbon has operated a garden on a rooftop at the LES Thompson Hotel for several years, and they’ve rebranded with a Japanese theme. There’s a short food menu that includes sushi handrolls, plus frozen beers and boozy popsicles in flavors like bourbon-choco-banana and mint julep. Come with a group for a daytime hang - they also have ping pong tables.
