The namesake 29th-floor view is the thing at this tiny rooftop bar—at least, that’s what everybody says. But though the patio section is nice, the view of the skyline is not stunning enough to fight for a seat there. Especially when you can sit at the stylish indoor bar and get just as much beauty out of one of the carefully crafted cocktails.
Height: 29th floor Drink of choice: Shake, Rattle and Hum: Bacardi rum, HUM botanical spirit, lime juice and syrup If you eat one thing… Why not have it be ceviche? Wait for a table: 20 minutes Crowd: Yuppies and hotel guests
