The Gansefoort hotel is located in the hip Meatpacking district and we were told that it has the coolest rooftop bar: the Plunge. And indeed! The lounge of the hotel already gives a happy feeling and when you take the elevator up to the 14th floor, you are pleasantly surprised by the glass ceiling, the swimming pool (just for hotel guests) and the terrace that gives you a 180 degrees view all over the city, other hotels with rooftop pools, the Highline park and the Hudson river.
The cocktails are delicious and the waitresses walk on amazing heels. You can just have a drink during the day or go here in the evening for a cool night out. I wasn’t there at that time it but I bet sunset is spectacular from up here.
