Cool rooftop bar on the 15th floor at Hotel Indigo. Mr. Purple feels like a Midtown/Meatpacking venue, but without the attitude. There’s no cover charge and drinks are slightly cheaper than what you would expect at a rooftop bar, but more expensive than the surrounding Lower East Side spots.
For the beer drinkers, there’s a good selection of beer including some local craft beer brands, and the prices are wallet-friendly with tap beer for $7.
I was there on a weekday, and the place was busy, but not crowded.
Most people were 30-somethings and the atmosphere was stylish, but relaxed.
I’ve heard that the weekends are different with a long line outside and a different crowd.
• There’s a swimming pool outside, so drinks are served in plastic cups.
