Gallow Green Rooftop Bar

In New York, as in life, absurdity and pleasure often go hand in hand. The elevator ride to the roof of the McKittrick Hotel, home of the immersive theatre show “Sleep No More,” involves eerie overheard music and portentous chitchat—eye-roll-inducing haunted-mansion fare. But Gallow Green, the bar on the rooftop, is more of a secret garden: an open-air space with wooden tables, creeping vines, bursting flowers, and a view of the High Line and the Hudson River.
