A lush European garden meets magical winterscape - that's how we'd describe PHD Terrace at the Dream Midtown's new seasonal facelift. The festive "Midwinter Night's Dream" made its debut on Wednesday at the year-round rooftop bar, which in the colder months boasts floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look out at bustling Midtown.
Inspired by the whimsical Shakespearean play, albeit with a wintertime twist, the massive space is now dripping with twinkling lights, rich greenery, and even features a fairy-worthy swing under a canopy of roses. And while the Instagrammable moments begin the second you get to the stairway-turned-light tunnel at the entrance, there are even more to discover on the menu. From a secret garden sangria and a S'mores Tini to a giant ginger bread cookie skillet (topped off with boozy ice cream, of course), the indulgences are just as delicious as they are photogenic.
With a party-hardy young professional crowd, your chances are pretty good at both mistletoe-topped bars. But if that doesn't work, you can always order the new Love Potion cocktail, an adorable milkshake made with Baileys Irish Cream, vodka, mint chocolate, strawberry ice cream, nutmeg, and peppermint bark. Swoon.
