We were going to visit 230 fifth roof top bar,but never made it.
I quite fancied the cosy igloos,they have up there,as we went Nov/Dec,so it would have been chilly.
Looks nice,on their website.

The Knickerbocker on Times Square. We stay here every year (2 weeks and counting!) and the rooftop bar is beautiful and right overlooking the Times Square ball. Cocktails are amazing too,

We have stayed at The Refinery twice. The roof top bar is lovely with views of the Empire State Building and the cocktails were fab!

The rooftop bar on the Refinery is good, but Iíd go the Top of the Standard, at the Standard Hotel on the High Line.

Went to 230th Fifth for Thanksgiving dinner last year as they had a reasonably priced buffet, and was very disappointed. I was thinking it would be quite fancy and it wasn't. To begin with they would't let us into the building without ID, so two people in our party had to go back to the hotel to get ID, and they hadn't informed me of this on the phone when I called to reserve a table. We were then taken to a tiny circular table for 4 of us which barely had space for all our plates, and we were seated on really low down sofas which had bad dips in them, so you can hardly reach up to get your food. They never came over to clear our tables from the empty plates so we ended up reaching over to a spare table to set them on ourselves. The waitress also sounded like she was drunk and never bothered coming over much, and when she did, she kept forgetting things (e.g, water), and when it came to the end when we wanted to pay she informed us she could only split the bill in 2 and not 4? not too sure why, and it was easy to figure out as it was a set price that only needed to be divided equally 4 ways... Anyway, the food was nice, but I wouldn't go back to eat there again. The bar itself upstairs is quite nice, but it was quite crowded when we went and after taking a few photos it felt like you where just wandering about aimlessly as it was cold outside and the igloos where full. Good for photos though!

Another vote for The Refinery. Stayed there with my daughter for her 21st birthday and the bar is really good. Nice food too. Watch though as it often closes for private functions. Heard that 230 Fifth wasnít as good now. Also been to the revolving bar in the Marriott Marquis at Times Square, think itís called View Lounge and thatís nice for a drink too. Next time Iíll try Knickerbocker and also fancy Bar 65 at the Rainbow Room. Hope you enjoy NYC.
