Rooftop Cinema Club | Multiple Locations | Dates below
Outdoor cinema is about embracing the world around us, but that doesn’t mean it has to be uncomfortable. Which is why we use comfy deckchairs, with adjustable seat heights and plenty of leg room, meaning you can lean back and breathe in those city views under the stars. For those opting for the Rooftop Love Seats this summer, these are built at a seating width of 33”, enough room for two people to snuggle on the rooftop.

Drunk Shakespeare |The Lounge | Multiple Hours
300 West 43rd St, Level 2 Near 8th Avenue
There is a hidden library on the fourth floor of a building on 43rd and Eighth, with over 15,000 books. The Drunk Shakespeare Society meets there every night to drink…and perhaps do a little Shakespeare. One actor has at least five shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform in a Shakespearean play. A mysterious bartender serves cocktails through a 10-foot high bookcase made entirely of black books. A hundred prized novels are forever buried in an amber fluid in front of a royal throne. Other easter eggs are hidden throughout the room…
