The Refinery Hotel is surrounded by about 1,000 different office buildings, so you’re going to find a lot of people trying to hang out out here after work. You might even have trouble getting a table. If you want to play it safe, make a reservation. This is a pretty casual rooftop with some brick walls and comfy chairs, and there’s both an indoor and an outdoor area. It’s great for groups, so find a bunch of coworkers you don’t mind and bring them up here. If someone’s hungry, there’s a lot of decent bar food. Flatbreads, kale salad - that sort of stuff.

We’re actually surprised more people don’t flock to Monkey Bar. It’s a fine restaurant, especially for Midtown which is filled with overpriced letdowns kept afloat by tourists and suits who don’t know any better than to plunge their money directly into the dumpster.
