Bedside Cocktails and the New Rooftop Garden at The Surrey, New York

July 7, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Surrey New York, rooftop garden

A $60 million makeover of The Surrey in Manhattan revealed a spectacular new al fresco space-- in a city that's famous for cool rooftop venues. Open to guests only, the private garden is reminiscent of a traditional English garden, featuring seasonal florals and English ivy. Needless to say, the views over the city skyline and Central Park are superb. The all-day dining menu is inspired by local farmers markets. To quote Travel Agent Magazine: "The signature Muddled Lemonade mixes fresh herbs, fruits and spices with homemade lemonade, available with or without alcohol. As the seasonality of the ingredients change, so will the recipes. Classic cocktails such as the Dark and Stormy and Moscow Mule are complemented by more such concoctions as the Blackberry Mint Margarita and The 76th St., which features lime, club soda, orange bitters and Patron Silver." The rooftop is open from 7 am- 11 pm daily. For a video of the Rooftop Garden's Grand Opening Party, complete with some exclusive pix, check out Travel Agent Magazine's blog post.

Get this. The Surrey has also introduced 24-hour personal bartender service. From the July 2010 issue of Travel + Leisure: "Forget the mini-bar: New York City's The Surrey is bringing cocktail hour to your bedside. A personal bartender is on hand 24 hours a day to shake up pitch-perfect concoctions, whether you crave a vanilla Old Fashioned or a blackberry-mint margarita."
