The One World Observatory offers a unique experience different from any other observatory experience.

The observatory provides 360-degree views of the most iconic sites of New York City, NY the skyline, and the waters that surround the city. Even if visitors make the trip to One World Observatory only to find zero visibility, there's no need to worry. The observatory provides visitors with an invitation to return on a day with better visibility.
Situated on the 101st floor of the One World Trade Center, the ONE Dine restaurant overlooks the busy main Observation Floor. The restaurant offers a seasonally inspired menu that is complimented by local draft beers, small production wines, and hand-crafted cocktails. ONE Dine is open on Thursday to Monday, and it's strongly suggested to make a reservation.
At ONE Mix, guests can celebrate the city of New York with delicious artisanal food, spirits, and wine. Serving an array of small plates, each inspired by one of New York City's five boroughs, the food at ONE Mix offers an authentic taste of one of the most visited cities in the world. The food and hand-crafted cocktails are created by mixologists and chefs that call New York City home. ONE Mix is open every day of the week, and no reservation is needed.
