So, because I am always out in about in this marvelous city and I do get a lot of questions on places I go to, I have decided to start a ‘Bites & Thangs’ Column on my blog – to let you know if you should check check check it out as well. I will begin with my most current outing but will backtrack on previous ones, just because some of them have been great and really do recommend. OK ! Lets Begin –
This past Saturday, I attended the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar –
First thoughts – well where in the heck is this place. It directed, it as in Google Maps, to the Conrad Hotel and basically you are stuck in the lobby wandering and wondering. Until you choose to ask the front desk, which I did but they sent me to the second floor restaurant which was not the rooftop I was looking for. Ok, now onto the front desk of the second floor – they directed me to the elevators. There was a sign stating that the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar was at capacity – which was a bummer because the weather was perfect and so was my outfit …. wait a minute, I knew I forgot something – what I wore duh! See deets below :
Like I said it was a beautiful sunny Saturday in NYC – I opted for a light weight flower dress from Boohoo.com with my white mules from Target. It was quite perfect actually 🙂
Now of course I told my friend, well lets just see and we stood on a short line for about ten minutes, traffic seemed to move quickly in and out of the rooftop. Once we were let in, I understood why… it was super small for one – think like a patio, image below from their website:
It was narrow, no seating at the bar, and limited seating all throughout. There was literally no where to go, so my guess is most left to come back at a later time. Others hovered over at the bar, including my friend and I, hawking over the seated guests, ready to tackle the seats as soon as they lifted their bottoms off of it.
Another reason why I think people were in and out leaving was because the wait time for the drinks was quite long. It didn’t make that much sense, since everyone there was going to get about the same drink. After all, how many popsicle bars are there out there? Finally we order our $20 Strawberry Prosecco Icepop and….
I don’t know what to make of it, oh yes I do – I got a great picture out of it but I didn’t even know what to do – Was I supposed to drink the Prosecco and hold the popsicle stick to the side? Was I supposed to just suck on the popsicle and dunk it in the Prosecco like it was chocolate chip cookies and milk?? Or wait for the popsicle to melt like what? I think I did all three – the taste was just ok nothing amazing but hey I guess I get to say I had a drink once with a popsicle in it right??
Overall – come here for one drink, and don’t expect food – except for nuts, olives and chips..
The ambiance however, was great I do have to say. Light music, perfect breeze and great view. This would be my opinion, for a nice meet and greet with someone on tinder , ha ha did I just say that, not that I’m on it or anything….
P.S. We did finally get to sit but by then our drinks were finished and we just seemed like seat hoggers.
Happy Drinking 🙂
