White Valentine's Day @ the Press Lounge (Gorgeous Sunset)

 ***Please RSVP only if you are certain you can join us.  There is no need to RSVP "No" unless you've RSVP'd and can no longer make it.***

March 14th is White Valentine's Day.  Let's celebrate.  Just in time for Spring Forward on the clock, we will be able to catch the sunset after 6pm.

The Press Lounge @ Ink48 Hotel 

The Press Lounge at Ink48 Hotel is one of the city's largest rooftop bar.  The 8,500 square foot bar outfitted with comfy couches and pod-like chairs, provides expansive and unobstructed views of the towering skyscrapers around Times Square—not to mention gorgeous sunsets over the Hudson River.

Refined elegance comes in subtle luxuries; a glass walled interior space, classic cocktails, an extensive wine list, seasonally inspired small plates and informed and welcoming service.  Drinks-wise, caipirinhas and margaritas hit the spot, along with snacks like salumi and farm stand cheese plates.

Frank Bruni, of the New York Times, wrote that The Press Lounge was “without question, one of the city’s most attractive rooftop bars”. In the same year, New York Magazine recognized it as New York’s “Top New Rooftop Bar”, ABCnews.com rated it as one of the top 22 rooftops in the world, and Urban Daddy named the Press Lounge as the Perfect ’10 for 2010.

    We are at the northwest corner of the lounge. After you get out of the elevator, go straight to the window and turn left.

    Le Bain in Standard Hotel won't be opening early on Friday evenings until May. So, we are going to stay @ the Press Lounge this time around. :)

    No Anna. This is not a multi-group meetup. Maybe later I might be able to arrange something like that, but not this time.
