The PHD: a nightclub with views

In the PHD there is a party every day of the week. In this case it should be said that although it could also be categorized as Rooftop bar due to its magnificent views, in a practical sense it is more a nightclub than a bar in which to have a drink. That said, the views are amazing, with a perfect view of the Empire State Building. This is the place where Wall Street executives find themselves after a long day of work when they have something to celebrate and they want to do it overlooking Manhattan. The style of the bar is a little retro, reminiscent of an 80’s Penthouse with a very particular New York style. The best of the past coupled with the best sound system of the future.
