Let's continue our rooftop bar series at the Ava Lounge's beautiful rooftop garden that overlooks Times Square.
We recommend that you take Time Out New York's advice and plant yourself on a mod white banquette in the Dream Hotel's bi-level penthouse - Ava Lounge, "accented with wood paneling and erotic art, and take in the dizzying views of Times Square"; where "if the vista from the heated rooftop garden doesn’t weaken your knees, cocktails like the Gin & Sin—a potent mix of gin, Chambord, and fresh lemon and lime juices—might."
Zagat adds, "Resembling the penthouse apartment you always wished you had, this sexy lounge atop the Dream Hotel is a swank number crowned by a petite roof deck offering beautiful views of Broadway and the giant billboards in Times Square."
According to Rooftop Drinker, "Unlike other Times Square area rooftop bars, which are usually overrun with tourists, the Ava Lounge manages to attract a diverse crowd of New Yorkers." We will have our own space reserved in the indoor section and on the rooftop. Mention that you're with the veggie group at the door.
This meetup event runs from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. We encourage you to arrive right at 7pm, but you can show up later if you need to. And many of us will stay past 9pm.
For those who do not drink alcohol: there will be an ample selection of non-alcoholic drinks available. So if you don't drink alcohol, you can still join in on all the fun!
With all the wonderful vegetarians and vegans who attend each of our events, every event we do is liked by our members, but our "Veg Night Out!" events are the most popular of all. People enjoy the fact they can mingle (speak with lots of different people), and they love the beautiful venues that we go to. Join us for a stellar evening of lively conversation and lovely surroundings with fellow vegetarians and vegans.
For our new members: this is an incredibly friendly and welcoming group. We'll have our own section in the club, and you can get to know all our wonderful members.
People sometimes ask, so I'll mention: this event is free. (We would tell you if there was a cover charge.) There is no cover, no minimum. But please do buy a drink or two, or as many as you like. :) This is a drinking event after all.
Where to meet: The entrance to Ava Lounge is 210 West 55th Street, between 7th Avenue and Broadway. Mention that you're with the vegetarian group at the door. The group will be in the indoor area close to the bar and upstairs in the rooftop garden area.
Train Directions: Take the A, C, or 1 trains to Columbus Circle; the N or R trains to 57th Street and 7th Avenue; or the B, D or E trains to 53rd Street and 7th Avenue.
Join us at the Ava Lounge's rooftop garden for cool breezes, cool drinks, and stunning views, all while making great new veg*n friends!
