This 5,000-square-foot penthouse lounge evokes a Scandinavian lodge, with wood-paneled walls, floral armchairs and black pendant lamps. On warm nights, slip through the sliding glass doors to an outdoor patio, where you can sip cocktails like the Monarch (gin, grapefruit juice and lavender bitters) and the Butterfly Effect (tequila, lemon juice and jalapeño honey) with a view of the Empire State Building.
