Hotel Americano Gearing Up To Open Roooftop Bar

La Piscine
There are rooftop bars, and there are rooftop bars with pools on them. Even though non-hotel guests might not be able to take a swim at these high-in-the-sky watering holes, it's still fun to camp out and drink by a chlorinated oasis. Chelsea's Hotel Americano is getting ready to make a splash (get it?!) with the debut of their rooftop bar La Piscine, which comes equipped with daybeds, cabanas and some gorgeous views of the city skyline.

The Americano has been pretty off the radar - downstairs at the hotel is a pretty swanky restaurant that dishes out "French cuisine with Latin flair." Upstairs there's also a rooftop grill that will dish out bites to Mediterranean fare to those looking for a nip after spending some time in the sun. Word is the bar will be open the first week of May. That's swell, since rooftop drinking = best thing ever (518 West 27th Street).

  1. I went with my husband and my son last Sunday. We had an excellent dinner last November in the main restaurant. Unfortunately,we did not have the same experience this time. La Piscine is the WORST place in NY. We saw our appetizer going from one table to another 3 times and then arrived to our table before the drinks,we requested our drinks again. The waitress never asked if we want water beside the other drinks, we had to ask three times for water. The plates are minimalist size and very bad presentation.
    I will NEVER RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT.You can see disorganization of the employees.
