5 Reasons Why Mad46 is the Best

Anyone who has ever spent a warm night at a rooftop bar can tell you, there’s nothing better! Cold drinks, warm breezes and crazy views make rooftop hangouts a favorite in NYC. Here are our top 5 reasons why we think the rooftop at Mad46 is your ultimate destination.

  1. The View – When you spend all day exploring the city at street level, you can lose sight of the true beauty of the skyline.  However, once you hit the roof, you can’t deny how spectacular the city truly looks from up high.
  2. The Entertainment – Whether it’s a live band or the annual Derby Party or you’re just hanging out enjoying the sounds coming from the DJ booth, Mad46 is never short on entertainment!
  3. The Drinks – Craft cocktails and your old favorites are always on tap at Mad46. Nothing compliments the skyline like an ice cold cocktail.
  4. The Eats – Fresh ingredients, fresh flavors and built for sharing make our Mad Menu the perfect complement to your night under the open sky.
  5. The People – Mad would be nothing without our amazing staff and, of course, all of our regulars and new friends we get to enjoy every night!

We hope to meet you on top!

Spring in the City

The trees and flowers are blooming and the crisp cold air is subsiding in the streets of New York City. It’s Spring! Springtime is one of the best times to visit the Big Apple. It’s warm enough to spend the days exploring the city but not hot enough to break a sweat! If you’re visiting during this time of year, pack a light jacket (an umbrella) and some good walking shoes. With the wonderful weather, comes a great line up of Spring activities. Here are just a few of our favorite events and happening this season!

There is no denying that New York loves baseball. Major League Baseball Opening Season starts in April and lasts through the Fall with a full schedule for both Bronx Bombers and the Amazing Mets. Check out the schedules for the New York Yankees and the New York Mets and plan a day rooting for your favorite team. For more information on NY Baseball, including the minor leagues teams, the Brooklyn Cyclones and the Staten Island Yankees,  click here.

One of the greatest activities of Spring is the chance to enjoy the many street fairs and festivals hosted throughout the neighborhoods of Manhattan. With local artists and vendors (and some of the best street food on the planet), you will be sure to enjoy the best of the local culture.  Here is a full list of street fair locations throughout the season. Be prepared though, your visit may become ruled but endlessly chasing street fairs and the amazing things they have available.

There is so much to do in this city and even more when the weather is gorgeous.  From visiting Coney Island to Chelsea Piers to spending the day in Central Park!  For a suggested list of itineraries, visit and

Mardi Gras Bash at The Bell House in Brooklyn

“Funky Fat Tuesday” Celebration with George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic at B. B. King Blues Club in Midtown (West)

“George Clintonthe one and only Uncle Jam and author of the recent memoir (deep breath) Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You?—lands the mothership for a night of ass-liberating funk. Here the funk innovator hosts what’s become an annual Mardi Gras celebration for fifth straight year.”

Bierhaus NYC Mardi Gras at Bierhaus NYC in Midtown (East)

“Glug numerous brews, gorge on doughy pretzels, get your hands on some beads and revel in the gluttony during a special Fat Tuesday celebration inside this German Hall. Enjoy listening to some live music and, if you’re up for it, sign up for trivia at 6:30pm.”

Tulane NYC Mardi Gras Party at Drom in the East Village

“The Mardi Gras festivities can’t stop and won’t stop thanks to some folks from N’awlins itching to celebrate all over again in the Big Apple. Tulane, a New Orleans university, hosts this traditional bash with a performance by NOLA native and percussionist Derrick Freeman. He and his soul brass band play a lively set that will make you shake your tail feathers.”
