PHD Terrace Midtown: a hip rooftop hotspot in the heart of Midtown

Irene April Pics 541

Inspired by a posh penthouse, the PHD Terrace Midtown  incorporates sleek and modern interior design, an outdoor roof top space  and amazing views of Mid town Manhattan to create a hip and exciting space.   The PHD Terrace located in the Dream Hotel on the  15th floor.  The  interior space features modern lighting, dark hardwood floors, a color palette of gold and earth tones, and a interesting custom gold colored custom bar.   There is a row of leather banquettes for intimate seating and an expansive row of glass to allow guest to enjoy the cityscape outside


One flight up brings you to the expansive rooftop outdoor space which gives the guest a panoramic view of the city and you can look West. You can also look North and South on Broadway toward Time Square.  Below you the city is bustling with activity, but inside PHD Terrace, it is all fun.

We visited on a Tuesday night for Aperitivo Tuesday where you are transformed to Italy with a selection of Italian style cocktails, aperitivo small bites, and live music by the Nick Palumbo Band.

The crowd is vibrant, and the indoor and outdoor spaces are lively and filled with interesting, well dressed people.   The bartenders prepare some excellent craft cocktails from the extensive and creative list.  There are also 8 beers available, 20 different wines, as well as sparkling wine.  Tapas  and other small plate items are available to enjoy alone or share with friends including sliders, shrimp cocktail,   and spicy calamari just to name a few.

If the Moscow Mule is one of your favorite cocktails you can challenge yourself with the largest Moscow Mule to be bound anywhere.   Gather your friends and share the huge 10 pound, 164 fluid oz. version of the Mule that is made at PHD and served in a huge copper mug.  The mug is tremendous and not for the faint hearted and not to be ordered for one person (It will also set you back $185)

PHD is an enchanting romantic spot where the views are amazing.  It is also a great spot to gather with good friends.

There is music on other evenings of the week with different themes including Whisper Wednesdays and DJs on the weekend to keep the party going.  With a unique indoor and outdoor environment , a visit to The PHD Lounge Midtown is a must.  A perfect escape in the heart of the city.

Reservations are highly recommended.
