Rooftop lounge of the season.
Which is why this is about to become the most unforgettable Monday in ages.
Or at least in May...
Welcome to Above 6 at 6 Columbus, an elegant rooftop perch that’s signaling the start of high-altitude cocktailing, soft-open now far above Columbus Circle.
Yes, you’ve officially been cleared to come out of your basement dancehalls, speakeasy bunkers and self-sufficient subterranean karaoke shelters. From this moment forward, all post-work cocktails and panoramic nightcaps shall return to their rightful place—a well-appointed, retractable-roof terrace with enclosed waterfalls and aerial views of Central Park.
Ideally, you’ll want to time your trips up to this sleek steel-styled balcony (designed by the savvy rooftop veterans of Above Allen) to just before sunset. And just after dipping into the Blue Ribbon Sushi downstairs for a little pre-après-work snack.
A short elevator ride later (or long staircase climb, should you prefer to do things the hard way) will take you straight up to this glass perch, where you’ll figuratively drink in a warm summer night. And literally drink in a cold Hummingbird (cava, St-Germain, club soda and yamamomo).
Of course, should the weather not cooperate (like today), there’s always a retractable roof that can cover the veranda at the first sign of rain.
Making this the safest cava-filled place to be during a thunderstorm.
