NEW YORK—Located in Manhattan's Fashion District, Refinery Hotel has opened its new rooftop bar, which features a retractable roof.
The retractable glass roof, designed, manufactured and installed by OpenAire, allows guests or bar patrons to view the Manhattan skyline and Empire State Building.
“The Rooftop has a warm industrial aesthetic for which the OpenAire skylight was a perfect complement. The massive skylight brings the outside in and vice versa, while sheltering guests from the elements,” Christina Zimmer, principal at Stonehill & Taylor Architects and Planners, said in a statement.
