Rare View at the Affinia Shelburne

Neighborhood: Murray Hill
303 Lexington Ave.
Website: affinia.com
Price Point: $$

If you can handle the intense bro-ness that is associated with Murray Hill, then you should definitely dismiss the blue button-up-shirt-wearing crowd and stop by. Despite its early closing time –– 11 p.m. –– this 16th floor deck offers a fantastic view of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings and a menu of pricey, familiar drinks with a twist; think flavored margaritas and remixed cosmos. Or you could order a Jameson on the rocks, take a seat beneath the twinkly lights, look brooding, and automatically appear cooler than every pastel-bedecked frat boy there.
