Bucket List item #2458 – Loopy Doopy rooftop bar
On the tippy top of the Conrad Hotel, sixteen stories above the streets of Manhattan, lives an unassuming little rooftop bar. It’s not fancy or grand like many elevated drinking establishments, but you will discover nirvana. The beautiful view will bestow some smiles, but the drinks? Those will leave you in ecstasy.
Any time I add an item to the bucket list via some sensationalist news media source, I’m always weary. Just because a food item is larger than life does not mean it’s the best. It’s a novelty, so I went into Loopy Doopy thinking as such. What I found was a wonderous surprise.
You see, Loopy Doopy is known for its popsicle cocktails, and at $24 a pop they will set you back a dime. You get to choose between prosecco or rosecco (rosé and prosecco), plus your popsicle mix. Dave and I went to town and tried four different combos and all of them were delicious. I mean, DELICIOUS. My favorite was the piña colada. The popsicle was so fresh with chunks of pineapple and coconut. The rum was present in the popsicle, but not so much that it was boozy. Plus, two cocktails and I was lit, so cheers!
This bucket list check gets an A+ for cocktail perfection and a view. However, I do have one very serious recommendation. The bar opens at 2pmL or 3pm depending on the day and the tables fill-up lickety split. I would show up right at opening to ensure a seat. We showed up 10 minutes after it opened on a Monday and got the last open table. That’s bananas! I did see some tables were reserved, but I think you can only make a reservation if you’re staying at the Conrad. I could be wrong though, so it’s worth making a quick call just in case.
