Elsie de Wolfe, the world's most famous decorator, always knew how to throw a party.

Twenty-five stories up, near Bryant Park, sits the lavish Elsie Rooftop, paying homage to one of society’s most renowned doyennes. Like Lady Mendle herself, Elsie Rooftop knows how to plan event, capitalizing on New York City’s energy and savoir faire. Elsie is truly an all-season destination with sophisticated indoor and outdoor seating options, as well as bespoke cocktails which perfectly compliment the upscale, seasonally-focused light fare menu.

"Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must,
but be gracious if it kills you.”
