Set high atop the city at the Hilton Garden Inn, Above is Staten Island’s only rooftop ballroom. A posh, sleek space with a lively atmosphere, Above is perfect for couples looking to capture the best of Vegas, Miami, and NYC right in Staten Island. The spectacular views of the glittering New York City skyline and the Staten Island bridges are served even sweeter with the seasonal, modern American cuisine that is sure to delight every palate.
The panoramic views through the 20-foot high floor-to-ceiling windows at the Ballroom at Above set the scene for a sophisticated evening of dining, dancing, toasts, and romance. 4,000 LED Illuminated crystals dance across the ceiling in curves, casting a glow across the glossy floors of the room. Set against the backdrop of the New York skyline, the effect is enchanting and glamorous. Here, you can make a toast while watching the sunset, and enjoy the first dance beneath the waving crystals. Through the evening, guests are free to dance across the spacious Ballroom, mingle on lounge furniture, admire the view, or grab a drink from the bar. And for the hottest after party or cocktail hour, treat your guests to the Rooftop at Above! Featuring a wraparound terrace, cabanas, lounge seating, fire pits—and of course, an incredible view—the Rooftop is the best spot to enjoy a handcrafted cocktail in Staten Island.
