The Whitby Bar

RESERVE A TABLE

POWERED BY

open table

You get the feeling that a lot of people stumbled upon this bar at some point and just kept coming back. Sure, you’ll see some tourists (because this place is in a Midtown hotel), but the Whitby doesn’t feel like a generic spot that exists primarily for guests with room keys. The massive space is filled with random things that look like they were collected from estate sales, and if you get hungry, you can get some bar snacks like beef sliders and za’atar chips or order from the adjoining restaurant’s full menu.

Darling

Darling is a swanky rooftop bar on Central Park South with panoramic views of the city, and it's a pretty cool place.

Where to get a discounted drink after work (or before work, if you're on the night shift).
