About Press Lounge


The Press Lounge offers some of Manhattan’s most beautiful and dramatic panoramic views. Refined elegance comes in subtle luxuries: a glass walled interior space, seasonal cocktails, an extensive wine list, seasonally inspired small plates and informed and welcoming service. Situated atop of the Ink48 Hotel, the Press Lounge is the sister venue to PRINT. Restaurant, owned and operated by Adam Block. Opened in 2010, it quickly became recognized as one of Manhattan’s finest rooftop lounges; Frank Bruni, of the New York Times, wrote that the Press Lounge was “without question, one of the city’s most attractive rooftop bars”. In the same year, New York Magazine recognized it as New York’s “Top New Rooftop Bar,” ABC News.com rated it as one of the top 22 rooftops in the world, and Urban Daddy named the Press Lounge as the Perfect ’10 .

Adam Block insists that both The Press Lounge and PRINT. Restaurant be focused on sustainable, seasonally sourced ingredients. To facilitate this directive, he employs a full-time forager to purchase from local farms and regional suppliers. Many of the Press Lounge cocktails are inspired by the availability of seasonal ingredients.
