Cocktails at a museum?

I recall one of the museums doing a Friday night jazz series in the summer - perhaps on a rooftop deck. Does this ring any bells for anyone? Can't recall which museum and I've checked some web sites and don't find any mention of it. Does this still exist?

  1. Was it the Metropolitan Museum's rooftop martini bar?

    PS1 also boozes it up in the summer:

    And MoMA frequently has drinks at their PopRally events:

    1. The Museum of the City of New York has a "speakeasy":

      1. You're probably thinking of MOMA- - they used to do a summer evening jazz series in the sculpture garden but I don't believe that they have done it for a while.

          This is an elegant little place with a superb (but kinda expensive) wine selection. It's quite elegant.

          1. Met is open late on Fri and Sat.
            Lovely place to have a drink.
