Loopy Doopy, the rooftop bar at the Conrad Hotel, has become a summertime rite of passage. It’s too hard to pass up an opportunity to Instagram a pic of their signature prosecco popsicle cocktail. This drink is a glass of champagne with a full-size People’s Pops popsicle stuck right inside the glass. That cocktail + a sunny day + the view from this rooftop = summertime.
This drink is delicious, made even more so by my view of sailboats on the Hudson. There are about six different popsicle combinations, and I tried the plum one with apricot and hibiscus. It was fabulous. It was also $22, which is why this it a fun experience to do once, post on social media, and then not necessarily do again (for a while at least). You’ll also only need to have one because nobody needs to eat multiple large popsicles in a single sitting.
The rooftop itself is pretty small, so you’ll need to get there early or on a weekday to get a spot. Yes, it’s all the way downtown, but it’s worth it to go once in the summer. I also plan to recreate this popsicle/prosecco delight on my own rooftop at a much cheaper price. Who wants to come over?
