Upstairs at the Kimberly Hotel

Neighborhood: Midtown East
145 East 50th
Price Point: $$

This midtown hotel bar comes with plenty of bells and whistles: heated wood flooring, a retractable roof, and the allure of old-school-luxury-meets-modern-design. The slick BB Italia and Moooi smoked wood chairs with leather upholstery are circled around huge coffee tables to encourage conversation, and the twinkly lights and fresh flowers are swoonworthy enough to impress your date. Order wine by the glass, or opt for their humorously-named signature drinks, like Rum Service and The Chrysler.
