A quaint rooftop in Midtown East decorated with stringed globe lights, highlighting a great view of the Chrysler Building in the background.  With all of that said, this rooftop attracts an affluent crowd from the nearby stretch of big banks a la Park Avenue.  Men are wearing their finest business suits and women are parading their designer garb.  Drinks are $15+ a pop, but like I always say, you're paying for the view.  Highly recommend calling ahead to find out if they are hosting a private party and avoid if they are (way too small of a spot).  Also, show up at 5pm on a nice day, when they open (weekdays) to snag a seat.  


Drink of choice: a glass of rose by Pascal Jolivet or a classic old fashioned
