Veg Night Out! Drinks at the Iconic Empire Hotel's Rooftop Bar - Heated/Covered

Let's meet at the Empire Hotel's Rooftop Bar for a "Veg Night Out!" overlooking Lincoln Center.

According, "The glowing red letters that spell out 'Hotel Empire' are an uptown landmark. And while this iconic sign beckons out-of-towners for an overnight stay, it’s the luxurious rooftop bar that keeps locals returning for creative cocktails and indulgent small plates. Perched 12 stories above ground and affording stunning views of Lincoln Center and the Hudson River, the rooftop lounge is the perfect spot for after-work drinks, gourmet bites and unbeatable late-night parties."

According to Time Out New York, "This rooftop lounge, backed by restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow, features 3,000 square feet of outdoor space and private chaise longue-equipped cabanas. Three separate terraces offer views of Lincoln Center and Central Park, and an appropriately sleek bar—constructed of stacked metal pipes—dispenses specialty cocktails like the Oran’gin the Mood (orange juice, Bombay Sapphire, Patrón Citrónge and club soda). "

Fodors says about The Rooftop Bar,  "The only thing better than hanging out in Lincoln Center on a lovely night is hanging out a dozen stories above Lincoln Center. Thanks to the radically refurbished Empire Hotel's sprawling new rooftop bar, you can enjoy that pleasure even on nights that are less than lovely. We're talking thousands of square feet here, most of it outdoors, and heated in winter."

There is no cover and no minimum. But please do buy a drink or two, or as many as you like. The bar also has a full selection of soft drinks, juices, and non-alcoholic beverages.


Happy Hour Drink Specials  - 7pm-10pm

(The hours are extended specifically for our meetup group.)

$8 Mixed Drinks and Select Wines

$5 and $6 Beers


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. Come to the Rooftop Bar at the Empire Hotel and make new friends.

Our party officially runs from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. I am sure a good number of us will be staying till 10 (or later).

Where to meet: We will be by the  bar. Look for our large group. Be sure to go up to the Rooftop Bar after you enter the hotel.

See you at the Empire Hotel!
