Who Are We?

We Are:  Summer obsessed.  We think everyday is a summer Friday.  We invent badass, fresh seasonal cocktails.  We have an eternal appreciation for our iconic NYC skyline.  We think Mango Margaritas under the stars should be mandatory.  We host the most memorable parties.  Ever.

So, step onto New York City’s hidden gem… Rare View Murray Hill, the gorgeous 5,000 square foot rooftop garden bar.  A uniquely vast outside space for NYC real estate, the rooftop is designed into five outside rooms:  Empire Lane, Picnic Patch, Beer Garden, Champagne Garden & "V.I.P" (Very Important Patio).  Think bright colors, pillows, beachy wood slats, lush landscaping, generous seating & those breathtaking 360-degree skyline views - (Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Met Life Building, Freedom Tower, Bank of NY & East River).  Our seasonal cocktails are muddled on site & change every summer except for our signature Mango Margarita & Killin' It Cucumber.  We also offer quality wines, draft beers, bottle service & homemade pitchers of Sangria.

We pride ourselves on our always laid-back, unpretentious, upbeat vibe.  So, when May arrives we encourage you to bring all your bad habits up to the rooftop.  Hungry after rooftop cocktails?  We have your back... just head downstairs to Rare Bar & Grill for dinner - burgers are already on the grill!

“I wished you looked at me the same way 
you look at your rooftop cocktail.”
