We got to the hotel just as things were kicking off, but surprisingly the Manhattan crowd was there on time. After bellying up to the bar for a Jameson and Ginger Ale (don't ask), we snapped a few photos:

After all that grief about whether or not the back garden was open, we can say it is, though it isn't a real bar. The bar we kept annoying with our requests for more booze was a temporary set up--so don't expect to find bottle service here. On the roof, we found the same: BYOB is cool, but that's your only option if you're looking to party upstairs.
