Above Allen

By Doug Bleggi

Atop Allen Street’s Thompson Hotel sits Above Allen, a secluded cocktail bar with a flare for great drinks and Chinese snacking. The terrace exclusive to the hotel’s guests has an exotic decor complete with plant life, a retractable glass roof and post-modern furniture designs. Those in need of a cool-off in the summer months can also bask in the beautiful outdoor area and can take a dip in the pool which has a photolithograph of Andy Warhol by Gerard Malanga on its floor. If you’re looking for a place to stay while in New York City,  Above Allen at the Thompson Hotel’s Allen Street location makes the decision a lot easier.
