Lily’s Bar and Lounge
A first-floor bar and part art gallery, Lily’s Bar offers guests the opportunity to sip hand-crafted cocktails while perusing art by local New York City artists. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook bustling Lexington Avenue, and our exhibitions rotate constantly—at Lily’s there’s no shortage of conversation starters.
Even during the daytime, Lily’s is a popular spot for hotel guests and locals, who use the inviting space to host meetings and as a workspace with 2 charging stations available for smartphones. Come nightfall, Lily’s is transformed into a lively and spirited lounge bar. The private back room makes this hotel bar in New York City particularly versatile.
Lily’s Bar is temporarily closed for renovations and will reopen in June

The Penthouse Bar
Proudly sharing the building’s top floor with the ever popular Henry’s Rooftop Bar, The Penthouse features a wrap-around terrace and patio overlooking the iconic Chrysler building. The outdoor patio will also provide a spectacular view of the bright red Art Deco Pepsi-Cola sign that’s become a N.Y. landmark in its own right. The undisputed highlight of this historic space is its beautiful vaulted ceiling (with its distinctive geometric patterns of decorative raised molding). Rumor has it that this ceiling was Buckminster Fuller’s inspiration for the Geodesic Dome. According to Fuller’s daughter, it was while visiting the Roger Smith’s penthouse that the legendary architect and visionary thinker first conceived of the structure that would become world famous following its display at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. The sculptor and stage designer Isamu Noguchi was another famous admirer of this room. Other unique features of the Penthouse include its classically arched doorway and its burnt-orange wooden fireplace. With the spectacular Manhattan skyline as its backdrop, the Penthouse is guaranteed to provide a memorable setting for a picture-perfect New York evening.
Monday – Friday
