The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today the reopening of the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden and the Roof Garden Bar on Thursday, May 19. Visitors are invited to experience stunning views of Central Park and the New York City skyline while enjoying refreshments, including cocktails and wine, and light fare created by Bon Appétit. The Roof Garden Bar will be open on Sunday–Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Starting July 1, the Cantor Roof Garden will be transformed on Friday and Saturday nights for Sun Sets, a weekly series that will showcase a rotating lineup of DJs from the City’s ever-evolving dance music underground like Liondub, Kristin Barilli, the Brooklyn-based DJ collective Uklon, who are originally from Kyiv, Dominican-American DJ Toribio, and more. This series celebrates a diversity of rhythms, perspectives, and countries of origins, much like New York City itself. Sun Sets will be free with Museum admission, and will be first come first served.

The Met’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden has long been the location of site-specific artist commissions. The next Roof Garden Commission will open in spring 2023 with an installation by American artist Lauren Halsey.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is located at 1000 Fifth Avenue, NYC.
