Manhattan Will Soon Be Home to a Swim-Up Bar, Thanks to Spa Castle

This might be the only place in New York where you can swim to your drink.

Fans of Queens's steamy, sprawling, pool-filled fantasyland have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of its Manhattan outpost at 115 East 57th Street, and now new details have emerged to suggest that the dining options there will easily rival the multi-cultural food court and poolside snacks of the original. Gothamist learns that unlike in Queens, where cocktails were recently banned from the pool area, this new one will actually have a swim-up bar so that you don't even have to leave the pool to get a drink. Food, meanwhile, will range from bento boxes to acai bowls, plus there's going to be a Starbucks.
