230 Fifth

A great club, especially in the summer. Here, you can sit on the rooftop with spectacular views of the Empire State Building. Doors open at 16:00, which also makes this a fun spot for an afternoon drink. Fridays and Saturdays it can be trickier to get in so do dress up well and absolutely no sneakers. Also at the weekends, it’s mostly bottle service but on a weeknight, you might be able to sit down too.
