This Midtown rooftop lounge with Empire State Building views is open year-round, with a retractable glass roof and outdoor terrace that’s tented and filled with heat lamps during the colder months. For fall, Refinery Rooftop’s head bartender Nick Rini has crafted a pumpkin spice frozen latte, which is available through October 31 and part of the bar’s I Give a Sip campaign in which proceeds from a featured cocktail benefit a chosen cause. This month’s cocktail benefits Team Rubicon’s disaster response efforts. A series of Old Fashioneds round out the cocktail menu to be sipped fireside or, for those that want to bask in the crisp fall air, on the exposed terraces.
“While I was creating the fall menu I thought, ‘Give the people what they want!’” said Rini. “Who doesn’t want an Old Fashioned in the fall?” Rini has crafted four different twists on the classic cocktail, including a matcha Old Fashioned (Toki Japanese whisky, matcha honey syrup, Marie Brizard yuzu, peach bitters) and an Irish breakfast Old Fashioned made with bacon-infused Jameson, black pepper maple syrup and Angostura bitters, finished with an orange twist.
Refinery Rooftop is located at 63 West 38th Street.
