For once, fanny-packed tourists are in the know: Follow them into the La Quinta Inn and head to the 14th floor, which opens onto this rooftop hideaway, where the view of the Empire State Building is killer. Tip the bartenders and you may just get some popcorn.

VU Bar is a small rooftop bar in K-Town sitting right next door to the Empire State Building, so you will get a pretty crazy close-up view of the building! The drinks are well priced (soju shots were only $4!) and the service was pretty good. I went late at night during the week so it wasn't too crowded, but I imagine it must get pretty packed on summer weekend nights.
