New York may be a long way from Kentucky, but Starchild Rooftop ensured that no one’s derby attire would go to waste! The rooftop was the ideal place to celebrate on Saturday, right in the heart of the city! Located at the Civilian Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen, the spot featured Mint Juleps, shareable cocktails, food specials, and Live Jazz at Rosevale Kitchen.   


The first Saturday in May is an iconic occasion for fashion lovers and horse racing fans. While the Kentucky Derby was taking place in Louisville, Kentucky, the rooftop was buzzing with excitement as guests gathered to celebrate the iconic horse race. The spot offered a unique and luxurious experience for those who wanted to indulge in the Derby Day festivities. With stunning views of the city skyline, guests enjoyed live entertainment, delicious food, and refreshing cocktails, all while watching the race on multiple big screens.

On Wednesday, we visited Starchild Rooftop for their season party and enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres, including Pizza, Charcuterie boards, and refreshing, handcrafted drinks!

Unlike most rooftops in the city, Starchild Rooftop is operational year-round and open seven nights a week, so the fun never has to end! The restaurant boasts two outdoor patios and a retractable rooftop that can quickly transform to become a fully open-air space with panoramic views of the New York skyline and Hudson River. Starchild Rooftop is the neighborhood’s newest destination for Happy Hour, corporate events, and late-night revelry in a safe and secure environment.

Thursdays through Saturdays, DJs, special guest artists, and original programming elevate the energy as guests commune, dance, and party under the stars. Rockwell Group’s design celebrates the energy of the surrounding neighborhood and a trending cocktail list featuring five types of Espresso Martinis, shareable table-side drinks, and an OnlyFans Martini can be found on the menu.
