In the Press

“[Elsewhere's] sharp curation and pretension-free atmosphere have made it a welcome addition to the area's already vibrant nightlife scene. This summer, Elsewhere is set the unveil its crown jewel: a 500-capacity rooftop with a bar that will be home to art installations, film screenings and performances.”

As seen in Timeout New York

“Today, with summer undeniably (if unofficially) here, they’re putting the proverbial cherry on this sundae with the opening of the Rooftop ... It is, in other words, another welcome addition to New York’s booze-in-the-sky scene.”

As seen in New York Magazine's Grub Street

“…the space attracts people who are generally on the cutting edge of something. Since it’s still early days, you’ll find yourself among the insider crowd. If you’re in town, you should go — first, because it’s going to be a good time, and second, so you can tell future generations of New Yorkers that you were there when Elsewhere first opened its roof. This is history.”
