Skylawn review image



60 W 37th St, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Skylawn is a rooftop bar on top of the Embassy Suites on 37th Street. And while that might not sell you on it immediately, it’s actually pretty fun up here. To get to the roof, you have to take a special elevator that has only one button (it’ll feel a little like you’re sneaking into the hotel). Once you’re there, they have a few giant version of games like Jenga and Connect Four, and during the summer, there’s also a rooftop movie series you can buy tickets for in advance.
