If you’re anything like us, you spend the entire year planning your costume but forget about making actual plans until Halloweekend. In an attempt at self-improvement, we’re looking ahead and keeping you in the loop on every ghoulish gala, spooky screening, and haunted Halloween moment worth checking out this month. But first, there’s a new rooftop in town, and she’s an instant favorite, coming from our friends at The h. wood Group.
Harriet’s Rooftop at The Jeremy Hotel (@harrietsrooftop)
You know we’re a sucker for a rooftop, and Harriet’s delivers with full 1920’s ivy league members-only moments. Glowy string lights, sporty striped lounge seating, draped vines, and chic umbrellas serve up the vintage vibes. Slip inside to the bar for sultry, dark wood and hints of neon shining from Dave’s Corner, a tip of the fedora to Chapelle’s h. wood Group ties. Food includes preppy faves such as the shrimp cocktail, Baked Mussels, and Waldorf Salad, but the mixed drinks steal the show. Sip on the h. wood Group classic, The Jojo, and enjoy the view.
