PH-D Rooftop Lounge Information
PHD Downtown is located at 355 West 16th St.
5PM – 4AM Mon – Sat, 5PM – 12AM Sun
OR those who have spent years absorbing life lessons from “Entourage,” PH-D is Xanadu: a glittering room of celebrities, beautiful women and cresting credit-card bills. The nightclub, which opened in June on the roof of the Dream Downtown hotel, is the latest endeavor from the impresarios behind Marquee, Tao and other successful playgrounds for the well heeled.
One recent evening, patrons looking for a soupy breather packed the terrace, a walkway flanked by black couches and groomed shrubbery. Bottles of Champagne and vodka cooled in tabletop ice basins. A man wearing a blue-check dress shirt and white trousers captivated pals with a joke from the trading floor. The kicker: “I’m on margin right now and can’t call you back!” Nearby tenement apartments seemed several universes removed.
At the southern edge of Chelsea, PH-D sits atop Vikram Chatwal’s 316-room hotel, which also houses a poolside beach club and a steakhouse. While other lounges cultivate the timeworn comfort of a great-aunt’s living room, PH-D is a fine-cut diamond of glass and polished surfaces. Triple-tiered chandeliers with hundreds of glass rods hang above marble tables and leather seats. Midtown twinkles in the expansive view.
THE CROWD A testament to the timeless compatibility of wealth and attractiveness, PH-D is a crush of men in business-casual attire and women who rarely spend weekdays in an office. Like tipsy flamingos, models teeter around the room and dance on couches. At a recent installment of the popular Tuesday night party, a few craned over Wilmer Valderrama, an actor from “That ’70s Show,” who shared bottles of vodka with cronies and rapped along with Jay-Z records. Later that week, Edward Norton and Woody Harrelson stopped in, perhaps reminiscing about “The People vs. Larry Flynt.”
GETTING IN PH-D is no shoebox (capacity: 400) but table reservations, IMDb profiles and tear sheets from Céline help to lubricate an elevator ride upstairs. Everyone else is left to the mercy of the doorman after 9:30 p.m.
DRINKS The emphasis is on table service, but more-frugal customers can lurk at the bar. Thriftiness is relative: specialty cocktails are $18, and with tax and tip automatically added to the bill, a Jameson on the rocks surpasses $21.
- The place has a stunning view with lines of sight including the Hudson River and Empire State Building.
- There is a cover charge at the door.
- You can use the promo code DISCO to get $5 off tickets every Thursday
- There are 2 separate bars.

Why is Birthday Bottle Service the best...
We love our clients, and they love us, 5-star yelp rating, 80+ reviews, 3700 likes on facebook.
2/10/2013 Abe booked my last two birthdays efficiently and on budget. Reached out to me mid-week this week as I was scrambling for a Saturday reservation, and handled everything within a couple of hours. Great communication, access to best bars, and follow-ups. I highly recommend this service (signed up for yelp to do so) and look forward to booking my next party, hopefully sooner than a year from now.
6/25/2014 Birthday Bottle Service is amazing! I found them online and it did sound too good to be true but the ratings were excellent. Abe and Cristina were very quick to respond to my email request and very accommodating. I was doing a joint birthday party with a friend and we ended up selecting the Gansevoort Park Avenue with the buy one get one free deal. Once we got there, we only had to wait for several minutes before our party was escorted to our area of the bar. We ended up having more people than intended show up (about 22 showed up when we planned on 15) but no one had a problem at all getting in when using our names at the door, even the people who arrived late. The venue itself is great! It has a bunch rooms with different music styles as well as an outdoor pool area. Overall, this is a great service and I will definitely be using this again! Thanks Abe and Cristina!

5/13/2014 Birthday Bottle Service was a success! I wanted to plan a special birthday celebration for my boyfriend. I simply Googled "birthdays in NYC" and Birthday Bottle Service came right up. I contacted them and Christina responded within minutes. I was able to choose my venue from an extensive list. We chose Gansevoort. As the guest list grew, we asked Christina for 2 tables next to each other at the Gansevoort. Both had the buy 1 + get 1 free bottle special. Christina and Abe confirmed our party the day of and even provided us with a Customer Service number - God forbid anything went wrong the night of the party. Luckily we did not need to use it! We arrived in the VIP line and was seated right away. In fact they moved a party, cleaned up the tables, so they could accommodate us all with 2 adjoining tables within minutes. 4 bottles came out right away and our waitress was great and helpful when we requested different mixers. Everyone had a wonderful time! I will definitely contact Christina and Abe again for another event. I'm excited to try different venues with the help of their amazing party planning!!
5/7/2014 I made the mistake of asking my husband what he wanted to do for his birthday. I expected him to say he wanted to go for a nice dinner but instead he busted out "I wanna get a table somewhere and pay for all my friends to drink." Well shit! (only kidding!) We don't go to many clubs these days so I didn't know where we should go and I really didn't want to pay for 10 other people to get drunk. Thanks to to my mastery of the google machine I typed in "NYC birthday" and Birthday Bottle Service popped right up! I clicked on their website and was immediately awestruck- FREE BOTTLES- what?!? This can't be true. Nothing in NYC is free, ESPECIALLY alcohol. I emailed them and quickly got a response from Abe & Cristina. They set up my party at the Gansevoort and reconfirmed the day of. My table was waiting for me when we got there and I really did get 2 bottles of booze for the price of one bottle of booze (+ $50 tip for the free bottle) My husband got to celebrate and spoil all his friends and we looked like ballers, so it was a win-win-win. I highly recommend booking a party through Birthday Bottle Service and I will heed my own advice and use them again.
9/3/2014 I wanted to find a place to throw a birthday party for a girlfriend. I picked the venue on the website and received an email right away from Cristina. The reservation process was quick. I received confirmation in a timely manner. It was the easiest party planning that I have gone through. Thanks again birthday bottle service. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends.

Sunset Saturday 5-9pm Is the way to go to VIP on a budget. Got tix via Tao group app. Got right in with a bracelet for open bar til 6:30. So slam em down. We were able to sit at the "reserve" tables that are bottle service super expensive after 10pm. Gorgeous views. Good music. Good drinks. Nice staff. We chilled outside the whole time but inside got pretty packed and everyone was having a great time. Look sharp, dress it up, nice sneakers are ok. Just dont look like a schlub. Dont act like a jerk and Youll be cool.
A night to remember. This was a memorable and extremely generous date that my boyfriend took me on. There was a $200 minimum the night we visited. His card was charged and we had $200 to eat/drink. The view of the city is amazing! Food and drinks were very good. A very upscale experience.
If you are black, they will try to exploit you, therefore I do not support this business What's extremely sad is that the bouncers we're black as well. In a group of 6 I walked up behind a group of non minorities, whose IDs were checked and they were let in with no issue, then we were up to enter, we were advised that we would be held to a $600 bar minimum - this was not required of our non minority counterparts. When we questioned the bouncers they said "they came as individuals and you're coming as a group" when we advised we'd all enter separately the bouncer said "goodbye".
Just witnessed racial profiling, at its worst.
I want to give 0000000 stars but this app requires me to give at least 1. This is a trash establishment. The white bouncer said that they will NOT allow "fat girls". We were 6 black girls, dressed very nicely and they would not allow us in. This is a horrible establishment. It is 2023, we were going out to have a good time just like everyone else but were denied. Establishments that perpetuate these ideas should not be in business! Terrible.
The most disrespectful manager at the main entrance I've ever encountered. Literally never been so insulted before. Upon arriving to this upscale rooftop we were greeted by an asshole doorman who asked us for the name on reservation we said the first name, he began antagonizing us for the last name and impatient that we were trying to get a hold of our friends on the phone. He started laughing and mocking us telling people around us that were dumb that we don't know what a last name is that it comes after a first name. Literally never coming here again it's a shame that it cost $400 to spend just to get in here. Piece of shot staff!!!
I visited the club one night and the cover charge was $150 (which was more of a drink minimum rather than a cover). The venue was pretty nice but it was mostly tables and not much of a dance floor. I wasn't a huge fan of the music which was hip hop all night. I guess this club doesn't get famous DJs like with Lavo and Marquee. It was nice to try once but probably wouldn't come back.
I came here for a friend's 40th birthday party this past Tuesday and it was incredible! He rented out the entire venue and it was such a well-run event. Staff were efficient and friendly, the bartenders kept my non-alcoholic ginger beer flowing all night, and the DJ was bumping great tunes all night. I haven't been here on a public night but for private parties, I wouldn't hesitate to book this place. I'm sure it's probably somewhat pricey but from what I can tell, it was certainly worth it!
Spent Saturday evening at PHD. Found about this place on TikTok as I was an out of towner. The views were immaculate and the drinks were worth every dollar. If you come here be sure to ask for the bartender Money Meg! She made the night and drinks worth while .
I came here on a Saturday night with two friends at around 11:30/12 midnight (doors open at 11pm), and the party was in full-swing! It's definitely a nightclub at that time--the place had an awesome vibe with a great crowd of attractive people (mainly 20's), and it was packed in a good way (and not in an over-crowded way), you still had space to dance and move around. Lots of birthdays here with bottle service and sparklers! The DJ is amazing and plays a lot of fun hip hop mixes, as well as house, reggaeton, r&b throwbacks, a perfect mix to get you in the dancing/ partying mood. People dancing on the lounge chairs, a fun vibe! Only negative thing is that the drinks are weak and $$$ (but that's what it's like in 90% of rooftop clubs). So pre-game beforehand. PHD rooftop is also very aesthetically pleasing, beautiful rooftop with fantastic views! It has plenty of lounge seating. This is my favorite lounge/nightclub if you compare it to Tao Nightclub (next door) and Electric Room (in the same hotel). Tao Nightclub is way too crowded (can't hardly move) and Electric Room isn't crowded enough...PHD Rooftop strikes that perfect balance! Go there first.
I've been here once before, but this is the first time I've returned since COVID started. I'd say I had a pretty fun time with some friends! The line was pretty short (on a Friday night!) which is pretty surprising. We were there kind of early though I'd say, maybe around 10 or 1030. For a group of 10ish people we didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes on line. They have a really pretty sunflower wall! It's very aesthetic as a great place to take Instagram pictures. Unfortunately, I did not like my pics too much-- which only means I'll have to go back to take some more. The servers here are super nice too! Very friendly. There's seating upstairs is on a first come first serve basis so we had one group go hold down the fort at a table area we were able to snag while the other half went to grab drinks. I highly recommend adopting this strategy if you visit as well! For drinks I got a vodka soda ($15, standard NY rooftop prices). We all also got a "birthday cake" shot. It was a hit all around, so if you're interested in trying something new... I'd recommend asking your bartender for this. Only complaint was I wish the music was a little more vibe-y. It was a very chill tone which kind of offset the vibes. But overall I think it's a great place to stop by for a drink on a night out.
