Hayden’s Rooftop

Like Being on a Rooftop in Greece, But in Chelsea

For Nights That Call for Hummus and Goblets of Fig Vodka in the Sky

So, about your plans tonight.

The ones that place you and your friends on a shiny new rooftop that feels like you’ve teleported to the Mediterranean: all-white everything, goblets of icy fig vodka-plum sake drinks, beautiful people sharing plates of hummus and related dips, a mecca for additional Greek fare just an elevator ride away...

Yep, sounds like you’re heading to Hayden’s Rooftop, an absolute beauty of a bar perched atop Chelsea’s Hotel Hayden, opening tonight.

Up there, you’ll start your weekend clutching an incredibly summer-y Basil Instinct (ha, cute.) with gin, cucumber, lychee and basil, gazing through the glass at the One World Trade. The views at this spot are impressive, you see. As are the traditional Greek meze like herb-marinated feta, stuffed grape leaves and hummus platters, so get your hands on some of those. From there, you’ll either head downstairs for some bangin’ moussaka and grilled octopus, or head out to continue drinking at various other locations.

The timeless Friday night drinking versus moussaka conundrum.
