The Empire Hotel

One of my big wishes for my New York summer finally came true last night. I went to a rooftop bar. Like a NICE rooftop bar in New York.

And it was! It was really nice and a little glamorous. As were the people- especially all the men that just got off work at Brooks Brothers and came straight to the bar.

We headed to the Empire Hotel,  a well-known hotel in the Upper West Side right across the street from Lincoln Center. The Empire Hotel’s retro-glam sign shines from the top of the rooftop all along the west side.

And what can you find right behind that big ole sign? A fancy rooftop bar.

When we first got there, we started the party..

And then the sun started going down, the candles were lit, people that get off work later than us arrived, and it was beautiful!
