Food: Need a drink afterwork?

Test Your Mettle At This New Rooftop Bar With A Glass Bottom Floor

New neighborhood spot located at the rooftop of the Arlo NoMad Hotel, called “The Heights”

The rooftop component to Top Chef competitor Dale Talde’s first Manhattan restaurant opened last month in the Arlo NoMad hotel, offering another angle to peer up at the Empire State Building—and down below at 31st Street. Called “The Heights,” the rooftop bar includes several notable features other than the view, like Talde’s Detroit-style pizzas, cocktails, and some thick glass overhanging the street where you can stand to test your will.


Face your fears

The glass bottom floor feels more manageable after a cocktail or a glass of rosé, and true vertigo sufferers can avoid that section altogether, though a representative for the bar explained that the “glass was thicker than the concrete.” Not necessarily reassuring, but take from that what you will. There are views in nearly all directions from the wrap around space, with particularly lovely vistas to the east where the skyline is lower (you can peep the East River juuuust a little bit).

Talde’s hearty pies go down all too easily after a few cocktails, which are inspired by NYC locales with “Heights” in the name, such as Crown, Washington and Brooklyn. They’re offering four different pizza flavors currently—cheese, mushroom, sausage and pepperoni—and some chips and dips combinations including guacamole, salsa and a ceviche.
