Spyglass Rooftop Bar. Archer Hotel New York
There’s something undeniably seductive about a hotel bar. Intrinsically it’s a hub for adventure. Patrons from far and near. Moods that range from high-spirited to hush. And bar maestros who mix classic favorites with exotic concoctions and make you feel like you belong. Read on for a list of Archer’s favorite NYC hotel bars.
The best of a by-gone era bar with stunner views of the beloved Empire State Building is just an elevator ride straight up. Sitting high atop Archer, Spyglass offers voyeuristic views and approachable ambiance.
King Cole Bar. The St. Regis Hotel New York
Tiki Tabu. SIXTY Hotel LES
Aloha! For a Hawaiian escape in the concrete jungle head no further then Tiki Tabu. This limited-time rooftop pop-up might not be on our list very long, but the sheer fun of it makes it worth the visit. The bar is all about rum, vodka, and whiskey stirred up with summertime mixes for refreshing joy-filled drinks. But the fun doesn't stop there —traditional Tiki cups, a white DJ pulpit, and bamboo-deco hand dryers round out the experience. Get there early and there's a good chance you'll land one of their palm-printed sofas.
Upstairs. The Kimberly
Up 30-stories to be exact, this stunning penthouse bar sits above the Kimberly Hotel in Midtown. Retractable awnings and ambient heated floors make this an all-season staple. Edison bulb lighting adds to the ambiance. We recommend the Rum Service-- a spiced rum-based beverage with honey, fresh pear, and lime juice. It's the perfect refreshment for gazing out on Midtown and reminiscing about why you love this city.
