Perched a whopping 65 stories above Rockefeller Center (hence the name), this polished cocktail gem occupies the city's highest outdoor terrace space. Needless to say, the vista is a pretty serious draw here, with the sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline a spectacular backdrop to quality cocktails and playful bistro fare. It's the sister venue to the adjacent, iconic Rainbow Room restaurant, so there's pedigree, too.
The cocktail list ranges from 'Rainbow Room classics' such as a 1934 Gin & Tonic made with Botanist gin, lemon, angostura bitters, pink peppercorn and tonic, to 'Five Borough Classics' (their Manhattan is especially good) and 'Seasonal Inspirations' such as the Journey to the East, a mix of avocado-washed Aviation Gin, Yellow Chartreuse, Drambuie, matcha tea, egg white and lemon juice.
Bar SixtyFive is open from Monday through Friday, 4.30pm to midnight and on Sundays, 4pm to 9pm.
