The quintessential rooftop drinking experience comes with a few expectations: stunning views, a DJ booth and maybe a drink served in a shareable bong for good measure.

Come Friday, Apogee Lounge aims to exceed those expectations, one batshit-crazy cocktail at a time. Tri-colored ice, edible butterflies and that decidedly bong-y concoction are just a few of the surprises that await on the 26th floor of the Dana Hotel.

The team behind the Sixth has given Vertigo Sky Lounge a gold-accented new look, complete with blue-velvet banquettes, al fresco fire pits and a single bottle of 25-year old Pappy with a $15,000 price tag.

We’ll let this cocktail-filled slideshow do the rest of the talking...

Sarah Freeman is often accused of hiding secrets in her hair. She can make any cocktail, as long as that cocktail is a rye Old Fashioned, and has never met a saison she didn’t like.
