Looking for a beach oasis in the middle of an urban jungle?

Surf Shack, NYC’s new rooftop bar, has you covered as it opens May 5. The pop-up rooftop beach bar at Good Story on the Arlo SoHo hotel roof features grilling stations and surf gear decor.

If you’ve never relaxed in a baby pool filled with beer, now you can at this SoHo bar. Just take a dip -- and a sip if you’re a risk-taker.

If you’re not keen on drinking pool beer, you can check out Surf Shack’s list of tiki cocktails, like classic margaritas or mai tais. 

If you’re out for a super boozy night, opt for the bar’s extra-large, vodka-spiked Orangeade.

If you’re looking for some late-night eats, try the carnitas tacos or the burgers to accompany your refreshing resort-themed drinks. Or you can order an entire grilled fish for a summer-night bite.

The bar transforms every season with a new theme to celebrate the change in weather. Last winter, bar patrons sipped on warm Christmas-inspired drinks, like egg-nog and candy cane shooters, at the pop-up bar Winter Wonderland.


The nights you look forward to would be on Thursdays and Fridays. Throwback Thursdays, every Thursday night at 7 p.m., will have you boogieing to ‘70s and ‘80s hits. 

Friday Feels, every Friday night at 7 p.m., will have you jamming to ‘90s and ‘00s rap and hip-hop throwbacks.


You’ll be singing along with Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff’s in the summertime in no time.
