I tested for you ... a nightclub on the rooftops of New York!

New York City

If the sights of New York are legion and well known (Statue of Liberty, MoMA, Guggenheim Museum and many others), no stay in the city-world can be successful without tasting the atmosphere so special for its nightlife. Whether one prefers the atmosphere rather lounge, jazzy or clubs for night owls, there's something for everyone.

In this sense, the city that never sleeps is largely his nickname to his famous rooftop that make its greatest asset. And for the last night of my stay, I throw my allotted two names as local blown me during the day.

Around 21 pm I arrive in front of the very popular 230 fifth, located, and you guessed it, at number 230 Fifth Avenue. After half an hour of tail and passed dozens of floors in a supersonic elevator, I quickly understand why the place is so popular. Tens of comfortable white sofas are stormed by a very diverse clientele (of sharpened hipsters tourists neglected) under the benevolent gaze of the Empire State Building. To my surprise, there is no (that night at least) of entry ticket, and rates drinks are not exorbitant. On a very Buddha Bar music, the atmosphere is casual and warm meetings.

Around 23 pm, I take the tangent to Bath, another rooftop near the Hudson River, located in a kind of artistic complex with bars, restaurants and art galleries. The atmosphere is much more likely, the biggest music (that night, the French DJ Etienne de Crécy plays anonymous behind the decks) and still breathtaking view of the illuminated skyline. And as the club the name suggests, the little extra is a pool inside the same box, in which the more motivated happily wade into the late evening. Just when I find myself sipping a gin in the water at the immensity, I finally tasted in New York as a whole.
