Unparalleled views of the Chrysler and Empire State buildings make the bar on the rooftop of the Shelbourne Hotel a revelation to boarders and visitors alike. Lounge beds and ample seating guarantee comfortable sightseeing; strings of lights decorate the foliage. Drinks, however, come at a cost ($9 for beer, $10 for standard mixed drinks) and are served in plastic cups—half price every day from 3:30 to 5:30pm. Wednesday and Thursday evenings bring DJs and dancing.
