"This 3,000-square-foot rooftop bar on the 31st floor of the Kimberly Hotel features ivy-covered walls, old-fashioned globe street lamps and a retractable roof that makes it possible to enjoy the 360-degree views year-round. It’s best experienced at night, when the web of lightbulbs above the terrace gives a sparkling ambiance in which to appreciate the view of the Chrysler Building. In addition to signature cocktails ($16), drinkers can choose from a selection of beers on tap and an international wine list of more than 100 bottles. Booze-friendly foods include grilled calamari ($15) and fried baby artichokes ($14)." -TimeOutNY
