36 Central Park South, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

If you want to see what kind of view you could have if you threw a couple hundred million dollars at a penthouse on Central Park South, head to this rooftop bar on the 47th floor of the Park Lane New York hotel. Darling has a central lounge area surrounded by a brightly-lit hallway with carriage-like seating and an enclosed, awning-covered patio with lots of greenery and a DJ playing disco and funk. That patio is where you’ll get the best views as you sip on cocktails ($22-$25) and snack on bites like spicy chicken sliders and basil arancini. Come here when you want to impress someone (and yourself). Darling isn’t just a cool bar for something that’s in a hotel—it’s a cool bar period.
