Time Out says

Perched a whopping 65 stories above Rockefeller Center (hence the name), this polished cocktail gem occupies the city's highest outdoor terrace space. A sister venue to the adjacent, iconic Rainbow Room restaurant, the bar doles out playful bistro fare soaked up by craft libations and framed by sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. For a new twist on a classic, order the Charred Hass Avocado ($14) with the smoky vegetable presented amid a creamy cashew "Crème Fraiche" or, of course, there's always the Crispy Oysters "Rockefeller" ($24)  a rich appetizer that seems right at home at the venue. For cocktails, stick to the classics. Their take on the stalwart Manhattan ($20) is expertly prepared and perfectly balanced while the Brooklyn ($20) provides a slightly more earthy alternative. Proper attire is requested.

Wonderful bar, wonderful view, wonderful meals and normal prices! It was a stunning experience and a perfect start into our New York trip in January!

Why pay $34 for the Top of the Rock when you can dress up a little and visit Bar 65, pay $20 for a fancy schmancy cocktail and appreciate exactly the same view?! You'll need to book a table in advance if you'll be wanting a seat but I'd seriously recommend stopping by here before your dinner reservation for what must surely be one of the most stunning city views in the world. Make sure you're there just in time to appreciate the sunset!

Such an elegant rooftop bar/ located above the Rockefeller Center/ adjacent to the very famous rainbow room! This rooftop bar has the best views of Central Park as well as of lower manhattan and the midtown section of the city! With the vantage point of being located right under the top of the rock observatory this fancy bar offers visitors with a one of a kind rooftop experience! Great for special occasions and fancy date nights! My cocktail was carefully crafted and the cost was what you would expect for such a gifted location!


Fun place to take those that are visiting from out of town. Great selection of drinks and spectacular views! Because of it's locale, the prices are a little higher but not crazy over the top. A recommendation for a special occasion or celebration - while we were there we saw a live proposal take place!

Right in the center of it all - for better or worse. Making it to the bar, requires trekking through the labyrinthine maze of Rock Center, and under most scenarios sharing small spaces with a lot of tourists (Top of the Rock crisscrosses paths). The vibe once at the bar is better, with a more formalized dress code, luxe aesthetics, and great views of midtown. Making reservations helps to ensure service, otherwise you're at the bar, or trying to order small bites at standing tables. The food is good, serving high end interpretations of bar room classics, and the best part is service is pretty fast. The prices reflect the location and views - so it may be worth it to stop by once to feel like a tourist in your town, but repeated trips will hurt your wallet. Overall good experience, good selection of drinks, some interesting cocktails, edible food, and magnificent views - all for just a very pretty penny.


Most unique and classy "rooftop" venue in the city.  This is a fantastic bar/restaurant with views just 2 floors down from Top of the Rock.  The terrace opens in the warmer months so you can sip cocktails from the highest rooftop in the city.
