2. Sixtyfive (30 Rockefeller Plz, Midtown West)
Sixtyfive at the Rainbow Room was recently re-opened after receiving quite the face lift. According to architect Michael Gabellini, the new space was designed to “burnish history, to polish and move it into the present day, with an eye on the future.” The trendy cocktail lounge, situated on the 65th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, offers stunning views of Midtown Manhattan. The lounge serves classic old-fashioned signature cocktails like the 1915 Gin & Tonic. Be sure to imbibe a Gotham Mule, a house favorite made of Granny Smith apple-infused Tito’s Vodka and ginger beer.
