Après Restaurant at Summit One Vanderbilt


A visit to Summit One Vanderbilt is incomplete without digging into food at Après, a refreshing outpost designed by Danny Meyer of Union Square Events.

Since Apres is part of the observation deck experience, guests need the Summit One Vanderbilt tickets to enter.

Après Summit One Vanderbilt is a restaurant cum bar that, besides filling your belly, offers you a panoramic view of New York City.

Guests love the dishes and cocktails served at the restaurant, which they can consume at the indoor cafe and outside bar cart. 

Since Summit One Vanderbilt’s restaurant is not a sit-down restaurant, you can pick up your food and enjoy it while watching the New York skyline from the air terrace or indoor lounge.
