Whether you need a break from New York Fashion Week madness or just New York in general, Bar d’Eau is your go-to for a mini staycation in the city. 

Seven floors up you’ll find a hidden oasis with a pool small enough for exclusivity but just big enough to feel transported away from the dirty busy city. The cascading waterfalls, private cabanas, and bocce court evoke South Beach vibes. Take a dip or relax poolside to get a tan before summer ends.

No poolside retreat is complete with cocktails, of course. All of the cocktails are crafted to perfection but the Bourbon Peach Fix is a standout with just four simple ingredients – Bulleit Bourbon, Peach, Cinnamon, and Lemon Juice. The Modernista is another showstopper with fruitful flavors like apricot, orange juice, and strawberry. The flower garnish makes it almost too pretty to drink. And of the course the writer in me had to sample the Hemingway Daiquiri. 
Small plates include fire roasted salsa, pastrami salmon, and fresh, tableside guacamole to accompany your handcrafted libations. 
From L to R: Bourbon Peach Fix, Emerald Dragon, Modernista, Hemingway Daiquiri
The bar is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Not a Trump hotel guest? The pool is available to non-hotel guests after 6 pm.
