You’ll soon be able to get drunk higher than you ever have before.

Starting next week, the One Liberty Observation Deck will open up an indoor beer garden on Thursdays on the 57th Floor of One Liberty Place. Surpassing the well-reviewed SkyGarten, the new Bar 57 will be the new tallest beer garden in the city. You’ll have to sneak beer to the top of the Comcast Center to drink any higher in this city.

“Sunset is the most beautiful time of day at the Observation Deck,” observation deck GM Evan Evans said in a release. “We wanted to provide an experience where guests can come after work to unwind with friends, preferred beverage in hand, overlooking these gorgeous vistas.”

The Bar 57 beer garden will run on Thursdays from September 27th to October 27th. Tickets for the experience are a tad pricey, however: Normally $19, tickets for the beer garden will be discounted to $14 at the door and $12 purchased in advance.

Beer and food options have not yet been released, but the One Liberty Observation deck says it will be handled by Di Bruno Bros. Catering and Events.

The beer garden will open on Thursdays at 5. Happy hour (with $5 beers and $7 wines) lasts until 7. The bar will be open until 8, which is also the new closing time for the observation deck.
