Review: Trump Soho’s Bar d’Eau

Though Summer doesn’t officially begin until mid June, most consider memorial day weekend as the officially unofficial start of the summer party season. Weather permitting this weekend is usually filled with garden parties, barbeques and for us city dwellers rooftop soirees. Bar d’Eau is one of many venues opening up to the public this week. The intimate oasis is on the 7th floor of the beautiful Trump Soho. Summer came early for team JSD as we were cordially invited to attend the exclusive preview before the official public opening.

The space has an enclosed bar area and lounge as well as an out door deck. The deck is 6000 square feet with 1 pool surrounded by modern lounge chairs, several table settings and a small bocce ball court. Within the lovely surroundings guests may enjoy a variety of small plate items along with their specialty cocktails. One of the most interesting cocktails is the “Moet Ice Imperial”, one of the first champagnes created to be served over ice. Very few venues will have access to thus refreshing cocktail, making the experience at Trump Soho all the more exclusive. Also available at the bar are, The Belvedere Lemon Ice Tea which is a refreshing libation, featuring Belvedere lemon tea vodka and black tea and the Rose on Spring which is also made from Belvedere and features a spritz of rose water for a fragrant finish.

While guests of the Trump are the only people allowed to enjoy the pool, the bar is open to the public.  As with most roof top spaces this venue is only available for a short while, so you should catch while you can. If the view and gorgeous setting isn’t enough of a reason, go for the world class cocktails and ambiance. You may have to work all summer but that’s no excuse not to play, drop by Bar d’Eau for a little grown up fun. Bar d’Eau is located on the 7th floor of the Trump Soho Hotel @ 246 Spring Street (at Varick Street).
