NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 -- Summer in New York City is synonymous with rooftop gatherings, and the Renaissance New York Hotel 57 will be reopening its seasonal Rooftop Lounge this May, just in time to join the party.

Located on the 16th floor of this hip New York City hotel, the Rooftop Lounge offers stunning views of the city skyline and a casual place to gather with friends, romance a date or meet with clients. Open every weekday from 5 to 11pm and 4-11pm on the weekends, the red brick terrace is decorated with contemporary furniture, scene-setting lighting and colorful decorative accents. The view, which frames the Chrysler Building, might look familiar; the title scene of Sex and the City was shot from this very spot.

A hot spot with guests and locals alike, the Upper East Side hotel rooftop captures the essence of NYC not only in its aesthetic but in its culinary offerings. Sip on a selection of beer and wine, or opt for a hand-crafted cocktail including the Kiwi Caipirinha, made with Bacardi Limon, simple syrup, fresh lime juice and a splash of soda. Hungry for more? The Rooftop Lounge offers light bites and will be introducing a new menu this season.

While this NYC boutique hotel rooftop is great for impromptu gatherings, it's also the ideal space for a private event. Offering 2,400 square feet of space and capacity for up to 150 guests, it's perfect for an afternoon barbecue, elegant dinner party or sophisticated bachelorette party.
