Located in the heart of NYC’s biggest Chinatown in a new Hyatt Place Hotel, this stylish indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge attracts local young professionals who used to head into Manhattan for their drinks. On a nice night, score a comfy rattan seat outside on the tree-lined terrace with solid city views and enjoy delicious, excellently plated Taiwanese street food like Tiger Bites Pig pork belly buns, dumplings and the uncommonly good sliced cucumber in chile herb oil. Craft cocktails created by an experienced Manhattan bartender emphasize fresh ingredients, clean refreshing flavors and impeccable garnishes of flowers, herbs and more.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Most of the drinks aren’t specifically Asian-themed, but the Bai Jiu, I Think She’s Got It features Chinese lime-washed HKB baijiu, pomegranate liqueur, arugula water, lemongrass syrup and lemon.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Weekends can get crowded for a time. Go early, go late or make a reservation. It’s the perfect spot when attending the nearby U.S. Open.
