    The Kimberly Hotel has revealed its new roof top lounge, called Upstairs. The bar is more than 900sqm and has 360 degree views with retactable glass ceilings and walls.The floors are heated and there is a main room that will be kept warm in the winter and will be sunny in the summer.

    The Upstairs is designed by the AIA award winning New York design firm De-Spec together with The Kimberly Hotel Group.

    By taking the newly built express elevator from the street level one is lifted up to an urban oasis thirty stories above Manhattan.

    A multi-faceted mirror reflects the surrounding cityscape at every angle. Lighting designer Brian Orter interprets a fresh spin on old Hollywood-glamour by adding vintage theatrical lights and strings of incandescent bulbs that float overhead releasing an intimate mood.

    Upstairs’ furnishings were carefully chosen by renowned houses such as B&B Italia, Knoll and Moooi.

    In addition to food, the bar will present various cocktails from classic to more sophisticated ones.
