What’s Cooking at The Pool House?

It’s time to dispel an urban myth that has been haunting rooftop pools for years, no, decades! It is 100% safe to swim after eating. Listen, we’re not trying to stir the pot here, but there are really no known safety issues, and we’re glad to pass this information along because we have so many excellent dining options at The Pool House. So let’s arm ourselves with information, and make an informed decision now that we know what we’re talking about. Whether you’re tableside or pool side, we have light dishes and entrees to go around that are sure to be crowd pleasers.


Okay, tell us more about it


Sometimes you’re just looking for a salad. Something light and refreshing to munch on while you’re getting some sun on the rooftop. In this instance, our Kale Salad with carrot, sesame seed, hen egg, Parmesan, avocado, pickled shallots, and tahini dressing is just the thing you’re looking for. But if your appetite is asking for more, we’ve got you covered with our Main Lobster Cobb Salad with avocado, chopped romaine, bacon, egg, cherry tomatoes, and avocado ranch.


But let’s detour for a second and talk about sandwiches and entrees. Who can say no to our Pool House Burger with griddled onions, American cheese, tomato, pickle, butter lettuce, and secret sauce. Got a vegetarian or vegan in the group? Don’t worry, we’re not going to leave them out. And maybe we’re a little biased, but we think that our Beyond Meat Sliders with vegan cheese, avocado, pickled onion, tomato, shredded lettuce, and chipotle Veganaise will become a fast favorite for your plant-based friends.


You’re also in luck if you have a sweet tooth, and want to “keep it cool” in the most literal sense. Our dessert offering at The Pool House is our Sorbet Sampler with 3 scoops of seasonal sorbet. Be sure to ask your server what flavors are in this week.




Specialty Cocktails 


Our specialty cocktails have been imagined with total relaxation in mind, with restorative juices, and only the finest spirits mixed in. If you’re kicking it poolside on a rooftop, you need to be treated like royalty. Let the week’s stresses melt away, and lose yourself in the flavors that paint your day with liquid luxury. We Understand that cocktails aren’t for everybody, and our full menu boasts a wide variety of draft and bottled beers, red and white wine, spirits, frozen drinks, and champagne. So worry you not, if you’re kicking it poolside, and want to nurse an IPA like a boss, you’re in luck! 


There’s certainly something for everybody on our menu, even if you just want to grab some fries to share with the table. Just remember, even though we established that you can eat before swimming, there’s still no running by the pool!
