Perched high above the bustling streets of the Garment District, Castell is a tasteful refuge from the hustle below, sitting atop the new acclaimed AC Hotel on West 40th street.
Leading with a classic cocktail program grounded in NYC history, contemporary decor, elevated service, and iconic Manhattan skyline views, the rooftop bar is a sophisticated addition to the neighborhood. Castell will serve as a destination for locals and tourists alike, providing a spirited experience and welcoming atmosphere in a delightedly discreet location.
The name Castell comes from the Catalan word for 'Castle' as well as the aptly named Catalonian tradition in which teams work together to build towers of people standing on each others shoulders - called castells - stacking nearly forty feet high. The name reflects the bar's aerie in the sky, as well as its Spanish roots; originating in Madrid, Spain by founder Antonio Catalan.
