Roof Top Bars Opinions: NYC

Jump to last reply

I'll be in NYC with my adult daughter in May. We arrive at LGA at 10:45 on a Friday night and leave the following Tuesday in the afternoon. We have shows at 8:00 pm on Sat. and Mon. While we are there we wanted to have drinks at a rooftop bar, and have the best of both worlds by going at 7:00pm. We'd see NYC in the daylight, experience sunset, and see the lights at night. Because of our show commitments, Sunday was the preferred day.

The original plan (7:00 drinks at Bar Sixty-Five in the Rainbow Room; 8:30 - Dinner at Marea) hit a snag: Bar 65 is closed that day for a private event. This leaves me with the choice of going there on Monday after the show and only having the night view, or of going to another rooftop on Sunday.

Two questions:
1) Is the view at Bar 65 so superior to other rooftops that one view (nighttime only) would be better than a sunset view from the others?

2) If you think that the day/sunset/night experience is the best, please make suggestions for another place.

About me:
I'm not interested in loud music; a trendy, hip, for the "beautiful people" atmosphere; or being surrounded by a lot of intoxicated young people. I'm okay with it being "touristy" - I am a tourist... I'm looking for a nice rooftop bar with a wonderful view and nice atmosphere. Since we will be eating at Marea at 8:30, I'd like it in that general area.

Some of the places that I'm looking at are: Upstairs at the Kimberly; Print Lounge at the Ink48 Hotel; Salon de Ning at the Peninsula. I don't think any of these have the view that Bar 65 provides, and certainly not of the ESB, but opinions of each and suggestions are needed. Perhaps it's best to just go to 65 at night and get the evening view.
