Met Rooftop Summer Cocktails


Join AWNY on the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for summer cocktails and breathtaking panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline and Central Park.

Savor the last days of summer in a beautiful open-air garden overlooking the city and catch the sunset on a Friday night with the ladies! If you are new to the city, or hoping to meet more like-minded Australian and Kiwi women living in NYC, this is the perfect opportunity to connect.

It is also a great opportunity to see Huma Bhabha’s sci-fi inspired installation: We Come in Peace, on the rooftop.

Bring your friends! We look forward to seeing current members again and we welcome all prospective members, friends and guests.
