Bar SixtyFive

Top choice cocktail bar in Midtown

Not to be missed, sophisticated SixtyFive sits on level 65 of the GE Building at Rockefeller Center. Dress well (no sportswear or guests under 21) and arrive by 5pm for a seat with a multimillion-dollar view. Even if you don't score a table on the balcony or by the window, head outside to soak up that sweeping New York panorama.

At the other end of the corridor is the revamped Rainbow Room, a legendary, elite nightclub turned swanky nosh spot serving Sunday brunch as well as dinner on select evenings (see the website).
