The Pod 39 Rooftop Bar

The new Pod Hotel on 39th Street recently opened their rooftop bar and I have to say it's simply gorgeous.

There are big open walls with red arches and columns over looking the city. The ivy on the walls and cozy seating gave it a very romantic feel.  

It just so happened to be Happy Hour when I stopped by and the friendly bartender lured me in for a drink. 

My Fly by Night had a nice balance of gin and lemon juice with big pieces of sea salt studding the rim.

But for a glass half full  at $12 a piece I'm not exactly sure what's so happy about this hour.  I'm a slow drinker and this was gone in record speed.  However I will be returning as April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman are supposed to be opening a Taqueria up top any day now...Sweetbread Tacos anyone?

I'm really hoping that's on the menu because that food and these views would be a match made in heaven.
