Rooftop Bar and Lounge: Up on 20 Hyatt Herald Square @HyattHS
Herald Square is known for its shopping, Madison Square Garden and flurry of activity, so it was a nice surprise to find a new boutique style Hyatt smack in the middle, but designed uniquely to give the visitor a tranquil and serene experience at the end of the day.
Up on 20 is the newly designed rooftop bar and lounge now open for the warm summer months. With unobstructed views of both the Empire State Building and The Freedom Tower it is the perfect place for both locals and visitors to come for cocktails and a meal.
The menu focuses on small bites and platters made to be shared as well as burgers and salads. We started out with spicy pork crackling which paired nicely with our first cocktail, The Rum Julep. We then tried the mini meatballs which were juicy and tasty and served with hoison and sesame glaze and baby leek. The shrimp ceviche with pineapple and chili was very fresh and perfect for a summer day snack.
The best part of the meal was the grilled beef burger with brie cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion jam complemented with killer truffle fries.
The bar/lounge is open for brunch, dinner and for cocktails daily.
