to anyone who thinks the days of Jim crow are over empire rooftop has it right here in NYC. Even though I was accompanied by two beautiful ladies , I guess the doormen interpret no hoodies and tims as no black ppl which meant "" they were filled to capacity"" of course that changed when I told them bottle service please! I wish I could I have said it was worth the money but mediocre dj average and often old looking patrons made me believe the empire is all hype or a party for those who just wanna be away from minorities! Either way thumbs ugly service average patrons no diversity makes this dig less than a star in review!

A friend of ours has been doing promotions here for the past 3 years! We were looking for a replacement for Decade supper club/nightclub formerly on 61 st & First Avenue with a ""grown and sexy"" adult (age 35+) crowd, with no:Timberland boots, sneakers, jeans/pants with no belts and their underwear showing with the pants pocket down to the back of their knees look, ""hood rats"", etc...We seem to have found it! The crowd is diverse, of all ages and dressed appropriately and it is a beautiful space with a definite upscale vibe. All women are dressed in cocktail dresses or nice dress jeans with heels. Some guys are in suits.Yes, drinks are ""pricey"" but hey, that is what having a job and working is for or do not come and complain.That is what helps to keep out the ""riff raff"". People who go there have money in their pocket, and those are the people we would want to be around. My wife (the ""hard sell"") truly loves the venue and the freedom to be outside and have a cigar/cigarette is an added plus. Do not let anyone give you ""second hand"" news about this place, come and see for yourself! Opinions are like assh?!*s, everybody has one! For those driving, there is plenty of parking in the area.We also like the fact that there is a bathroom attendant. I think SOME classy places have a attendant that keeps a clean bathroom and has everything you could possibly need in a bathroom on a night out (cologne/perfume, mints, hard candy, etc... - please people have some decency and tip the person a dollar minimum for anything you use). Looks like we will be here now on a regular basis!

The hotel organized a BBQ party for Memorial day yesterday.....
After 3 hours waiting for some foods; we have been told by the waitresses tat they never heard about this bbq........
the should have done an open bar from 5pm to 6pm but at 5.30 pm they were out of stock...
It;s completely unprofessional !!! and unacceptable They made people come and excepting something so that; at the end; when they learn that there is no bbq; the hotel probably expected people to buy their expensive food....
I will never go back again to this place and the view is not even nice...

I would've given Empire Hotel 4-5 stars, however, i downgraded them to 1 star due to their event staff's disorganization.
My friends and I (over 15 people) planned to go here for a 22nd birthday party. Empire had said over the phone that they do not make lists (unless you buy bottles) but seeing as it was too expensive for us to buy bottles considering we were a lot of alcohol thirsty 22 year olds looking to just dance... we decided to just go to have a good time and splurge a little on drinks (they're expensive, over $12)
Well, turns out there was a list for my friend. 2 people from our group who arrived early got in on her ""list"" but when the time came for the b-day girl to go in, she was denied because she was the only girl out of 4 boys (that particular group).
So after a relentless search for some sort of manager, when i finally reached him he waved his hand at me and said ""Honey, calm down"". So I responded, ""Please don't call me honey and listen to the situation."" He turned his head away, ignoring me while I proceeded to calmly explain the situation. Well, turns out, not surprisingly, we left.
I do not recommend this place for an event. They are disorganized and rude. If you must go here, go EARLY and with the least amount of guys as possible. (Even the birthday girl wasn't allowed in because she was with 3 guys).
I've been to this place multiple times, the music is mostly pop and the ambiance is elegant, but not too fancy. It's actually a lot of fun (especially clutch for smokers with the heated outside terrace), but don't expect a very smart, compliant staff. (they think they're sh*t don't stink) ;-)

During the summer, rooftop bars/clubs are the best. I have been everywhere from HighBar, 230 5th and I must say Empire Rooftop blows the everything away.
Far to often these cool venues tend to have a pretencious attitude, but not Empire. The bartenders make splendid specialty drinks and the DJ plays top 40's and sweet remixes.
If your going on a Friday/Saturday with a large group reach out to AccessGotham, as they can set you up with a guest list and even get your free drinks.
The door girls are very friendly and have a good rapport with them because we get inside instantly!

My friends and I had such an amazing time at Empire Hotel rooftop. When we rolled up, there was a big line, but because AccessGotham setup my party, we went straight to the front & got a comped bottle of vodka!!
The crowd was pretty good and the table that was reserved for us was in the lounge area by the window. I totally recommend to request one of the table areas by the bar so everyone can get drinks & party it up by the DJ.

My company had an event at Lincoln Center the other night. After it was over, we stumbled upon Empire Rooftop (across the street). We thought it would be cool to spend the rest of the night on a rooftop so we decided to come up. We wanted a table so we got 2 bottles of vodka. DJ was spinning great mix of music so we spent most of our night on the dance floor. Definitely a great place for an after party!
