    Sky Room

    Sky Room has stunning, 360 degree views of Manhattan and the Hudson River and is known as the city's highest rooftop lounge (talk about one of the most ideal rooftop venues in NYC!). If you are looking to host an event that takes New York City nightlife to the next level, Sky Room is the venue for you. Occupying the 33rd and 34th floor of the newly constructed Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Times Square, the bi-level ultra lounge transports guests to a high energy oasis atop 40th Street and offers five distinct spaces: the Times Square Lounge, the Cube Balcony, the Private Salon, the North terrace with its retractable roof, and the South Terrace with its private cabanas.

    The north terrace on the 34th floor provides a comfortable environment all year round with a fully retractable glass roof cover and panoramic glass walls, offering one-of-a-kind views of Times Square. One standout highlight of the venue is the South Terrace on the second level, which features illuminated furniture and flush lit floor tiles amidst a lush landscape, offering a luxurious space where guests can truly enjoy being in the heart of Manhattan, enjoying views of the Hudson River and the iconic Empire State Building. Rates vary depending on the size and scope of the event. Contact Eventup if you’re interested in booking this beautiful rooftop venue in New York.
