The Polynesian

Perfect For: Corporate Cards Date Night Drinks & A Light Bite Outdoor/Patio Situation

The Polynesian is a hotel bar near Port Authority that is worth a trip to Midtown. Yes, you read that right. This tiki-themed rooftop cocktail bar from the people behind Carbone and The Grill kind of looks like a spot where Jack Sparrow would hang out if he ditched the pirate shenanigans and got a job in finance. There’s a big wraparound patio outside with views of the Empire State Building, as well as a bunch of tables and booths inside. Cocktails are served in glasses shaped like skulls, treasure chests, and sailboats. They also serve bar snacks, like shrimp dumplings over sambal sauce, and mini bacon bbq burgers that are way better than the $31 kobe beef sliders you'll eat on other rooftops nearby. All of which is to say that The Polynesian is impressive, so you should probably take a third date or some out-of-town clients here.
