Perched atop The Kimpton Gray Hotel, Boleo serves a peacock-colored menu that emphasizes South American, specifically Argentinian and Peruvian, flavors. The cocktail program is equally vibrant as the street food-inspired small plates menu, featuring tropical-flavored drinks like the pisco-based Chilcano with guava and strawberry. The rooftop lounge is sprawled across a 4,000-square-foot space, complete with a retractable, sun-filled, roof.
In the heart of the Financial District, the circa-1894 former New York Life Insurance Building, also experienced a glow-up recently. Thanks to Boleo, the lush rooftop bar atop the Kimpton Gray Hotel that now fills the building, the former insurance mecca has a new forte—Peruvian small plates and pisco cocktails. The all-season rooftop features a retractable glass roof, Latin-leaning DJ sets, and vibrant drinks designed to transport guests to South America by way of a glass coupe. Peruvian classics, like pitch-perfect Pisco Sours and ginger beer-splashed Chilcanos, share bar space with quenching originals like the daiquiri-esque 15th Parallel, a potent blend of rum, pisco, Makrut lime, clove, grapefruit, and honey. Pair it with a smattering of Peruvian snacks, like ceviche, Tuna Tiradito, and Chicharon Sliders.
