Jimmy James Hotel Is One Of The Best Rooftop Bars New York City
The Jimmy James Hotel Rooftop Bar NYC – Yes, we meet again on the ongoing and undying love I have for the rooftop bar. The culprit at hand this time, Jimmy at The James Hotel. This rooftop oasis is set amidst the fashionistas and slew of foreign tourists in the heart of Soho.
Jimmy towers 18 stories above streets of H and M bags, umbrella peddlers, and Europeans on holiday fully clad with fanny packs and sweaters tied around their shoulders. This rooftop bar serves up some serious style in their Soho digs that emit a retro 70’s chic feel with upholstered plush seating, wood accenture, and beautiful steel arco lamps.
Once inside, you’ll feel like a true bachelor swinging his way through far-out decor that will have you acting out your best Austin Powers impersonation. Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous view of Jimmy’s indoor bar with floor to ceiling windows offering 360 degree views of Manhattan. Instead, take a venture to Jimmy’s gorgeous outdoor roof deck.
The roof deck is a sight to be seen, literally. Not only are you 18 stories high above the swarm of Soho spenders, but smack dab in the middle of the deck, is a gorgeous swimming pool. If you feel like traveling by land instead of sea, the roof deck also boasts a fireplace surrounded with chaise lounges.
Places like Jimmy make you forget all about the hustle and bustle of New York, and not to mention, give you the sudden urge to don a red velvet smoking jacket whilst everyone calls you “Heff.”
At Jimmy, you are undoubtedly in good hands which you will see once you lay eyes on their cleverly concocted menu of cocktails. Their beverages boast big bragging rights as their juices, garnishes, and herbs are hand-picked from The James Hotel’s very own organic garden. Feeling a little frisky? Try the Chanel No. 9, a prime beverage made from “9 different floral and botanical liquors” paired with champagne and “strawberry pearls”.
Want more of a lascivious libation? Try the Redrum Redrum imbibed with rum, cherry liqueur, guava juice, and fresh lime juice. Can we say, “Heeeeeere’s Jimmy!” If you’re feeling a bit more high-brow, try the Madame Bovary, a concoction of Courvoisier XO, Chambord, Champagne, and passion fruit juices. Now, if those drinks didn’t get you all kinds of parched, you need to check that pulse of yours.
Head over to Jimmy at The James Hotel for a night with the ladies, a guy’s night out, or for some post-dinner date decadence. Whether you’re hanging with your buds, ladies, or that someone special, Jimmy is one groovy place. Cheers, baby! Cheers!
