My old time best friend and swim partner, Sarah, and I decided to check out Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar last Thursday located at the Conrad Hotel near Battery Park. We had not seen each other in 2 years (even though it felt like we had seen each other just yesterday..!) so decided to celebrate being reunited after college by getting a cocktail in Manhattan.
What drew us to the rooftop bar, aside from the stunning views of the Hudson river, was the alcohol infused popsicle in a classy glass of Prosecco! We got there at 6:50 PM on a Thursday, but had to wait an hour before getting in!!! I highly recommend calling in and reserving a spot before going. The wait can be as long as 2 hours on a Friday! However, we managed to make it up by 7:50 PM just in time for the sunset. We helped ourselves to two of their prosecco popsicle drinks. I got the ginger apple infused with absinthe while Sarah got Blueberry infused with St. Germaine liquor. The price was $20 a pop…but it was definitely worth the view, drink, people and stay. But Loopy Doopy is an experience – not a drink.
Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar is located at 102 North End Ave. It’s open from April to October and closes at 1am on Fridays/Saturdays and at 12am every other night.
