Notes

If you eat dinner at PRINT on the main floor first, you can skip the line to go up to the lounge. And presumably since they are owned by the same operator, they may even let you bring your cocktail.

Although this is in the INK 48 hotel it is a separate operator so don’t try to bring a drink in or leave with one to go elsewhere in the hotel. If you are a guest of the hotel you cannot simply hop on the elevator and head on up.  Rather, you have to go down to the lobby, negotiate the bouncer and the velvet ropes and take a separate elevator entirely.  And if you happen to be coming from the free wine hour at the hotel, lookout-outside drinks are verboten and you will be relieved of your glass forthwith.  The same applies on the way out, step on the elevator still holding your drink and Armani clad ninjas will rappel in and whisk it away, leaving you dry mouthed and sad.

That being said the decor, vibe and view from this rooftop lounge are amazing.  Even though it was very chilly on the night we were there, there were fires burning, blankets available on the lounge seating and tasty craft cocktails to keep us warm.  The drinks were strong and we were nibbly so we ordered the “Small Plates” menu—like the entire menu.  A Salumi plate which was charcuterie, cornichons, baguette and grainy mustard, farmstead cheeses, olives, fresh and dried fruit and roasted mixed nuts.  When it all arrived we realized that out of the 4 of us, one of us might have enough to make a smallish sandwich.  These platters were not cheap and not filling.  They were tasty but honestly,  there was barely enough to get stuck in our teeth.  I have to put this in the “Do” category because there is not enough food in the whole lounge to constitute a meal.

To sum up:  before you go, finish your drink prior to arrival/departure and enjoy the views!
