The Water Tower is a sleek and modern space residing inside a glistering glass tower, perched on top of the hotel’s rooftop, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, with views of Manhattan’s skyline. The décor matches the views, with luxurious velvet sofas, contemporary light bulbs dangling from the ceiling as well as chic chandeliers.
The cocktails will impress those used to paying for the location rather than the quality when it comes to rooftop bars with drinks like the Message in a Bottle (Bacardi rum, clarified milk punch, blue majik pineapple juice, Chinese cinnamon cordial) and Purple Rain (Empress gin, Cocchi Americano, Poire Williams, CBD oil) from beverage director Rael Petit.
And the upscale setting obviously needs fancy food. Put together by executive chef Nic Caicedo, U can expect things like a grilled cheese sandwich made with white alba truffles, grand seafood platters and a $525 caviar tasting.
