The Hilton Hotel is a favorite spot for New York City's elite, with its Above Ballroom and Above Rooftop spaces providing wonderful panoramic views of Staten Island and the four bridges. The Above is Staten Island's only rooftop ballroom, and the changing cityscape and spectacular illumination at night make it an unmissable experience!
The Above Ballroom is reached by the Hilton's private lift, and is a magnificently light, airy space with 20-foot high floor-to-ceiling windows, and contemporary, supremely elegant décor. One floor above, the Above Rooftop is a weekend hotspot which brings the best of Vegas, Miami and NYC to Staten Island, including handcrafted cocktails and top DJs.
The beautiful lighting in both spaces uses UFO fiber optics, as specified by leading lighting distributors JPR Group Inc. when they approached our New York agents, SDA Lighting.
The lighting design in the Above Ballroom incorporates over 3,100 60mm crystal balls illuminated by UFO fiber optics. The crystals are suspended on strands of end-lit UFO fiber which are hung in sweeping waves, creating a magical sense of flow and opulence, and guiding the eye through to the amazing views outside.
In the Above Rooftop space, the designers have created a fun, exuberant atmosphere with 2,100 hollow glass balls suspended from the ceiling with strands of end-lit UFO fiber. 100mm and 150mm diameter balls are combined for a festive, bubbly impact, and different illumination colors are used for different moods and impacts in this trendy, cosmopolitan nightclub.
