I recently had the opportunity to check out the CloudM rooftop bar, located on the 20th floor of the stylish citizenM New York Bowery hotel in the heart of the Lower East Side. This rooftop gem is a must-visit for any traveler in search of a chic indoor/outdoor venue that boasts panoramic city views and delicious libations and snacks.
Food and Travel Photographer Maxwell Alexander's Epic Experience at CloudM Rooftop Bar: Panoramic Views and Delicious Drinks in the Heart of Lower East Side – NYC + Hudson Valley Restaurant Reviews with Maxwell Alexander
As a travel photographer, I was especially drawn to the breathtaking panoramas of the cityscape, especially the views of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower, which were nothing short of magnificent as the sun set for the night. I took some truly dramatic shots that I will cherish for a lifetime.
The atmosphere at CloudM is modern yet laid-back, making it the perfect spot for a relaxing drink after a day of exploring the city. The drink menu is extensive and creative, with a range of craft beers, signature cocktails, and worldly wines to choose from. I opted for a delicious gin martini, which was perfectly mixed and sipped while enjoying the views. The snacks menu was equally delightful, making this rooftop bar the ideal place to kick back and enjoy a fun evening with your gay friends or solo.
Keep in mind, reservations are required at CloudM, and you must be 21 years or older to enter. But trust me, the effort is worth it. This rooftop bar is a hidden gem, offering a unique and unforgettable experience for those in search of a chic and relaxed venue with stunning views, delicious drinks, and a memorable atmosphere.
As a photographer who is on a mission to find all the gay travel destinations in the area, and a lover of all things New York City, I am constantly on the hunt for new and exciting opportunities to capture the city's beauty. And I must say, CloudM is definitely one of my favorite spots to do just that. With its breathtaking views and laid-back vibe, this rooftop bar offers the perfect setting for capturing some truly epic shots of the city that never sleeps. If you're a fan of New York City like I am, make sure to add CloudM to your list of must-visit spots!
