Let's be honest. The view is great, but it is not really worth the money if you work in high rise offices in the city. I went with friends but I live around NYC, so nothing special.

Located on the roof top of the Marriott Pulse Timeshare Hotel, this is an oasis of a bar that is a snap to visit and to enjoy a great outdoor view of the city at night. Otherwise, it is just average in its category

Top of the Strand is a great little hidden gem in Manhattan which gives stunning views of the Empire State Building and surrounding infrastructure. We caught it on a fab night with the sun setting. Highly recommend stopping here for a drink or two!
