About the Pool Bar

An amenity unlike any other for travelers and locals alike, The Pool Bar is a premier rooftop bar, lounge and observation deck atop the new landmark TWA Hotel at JFK Airport. 

Inspired by the infinity-edge pool at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France, the swimming spot offers a beach entry, underwater seating, plus a gleaming TWA logo mosaic in the signature colors of gold and red. Boasting unparalleled views, the infinity pool and its 10,000-square-foot observation deck sit on the horizon of a thrilling scene — JFK’s bustling Runway 4 Left/22 Right, one of the biggest runways at JFK at 12,079 feet long. The Pool Bar & Observation Deck provides many more exhilarating scenes including the famous Bay Runway, measuring almost 3 miles long, and runway 13 Right/31 Left, the second-longest commercial runway in North America, not to mention views all the way to Jamaica Bay. 

Always refreshing, the water in the 63-by-20-foot infinity-edge pool offers a much-needed respite during sweltering summers. Come winter, it turns into a pool-Cuzzi — the water can be heated up to 100 degrees! Whatever the weather, the H2O is perpetually pristine with highly filtered water is purified every 30 minutes. Looking to throw a pool party? 10,000 sq. ft space can host private events for up to 300 people.

In addition to a variety of cocktails — from the Mile High Spritz to The Runway — hospitality industry leader Gerber Group serves an expansive collection of small-batch spirits, carefully-curated wines, regionally brewed craft beers, plus cold-pressed juices. Elevated bar fare such as Smashed Avocado, Caesar Salad, and Grain Bowl is served from a full rooftop kitchen.
