Bar near Rock Center for a post-show drink/bite -- preferably with xmas decor?

After 10 years, my husband and I are FINALLY going to see the Radio City Xmas Show. I'd like to make a classic NYC night of it and go someplace magical for a drink and bite afterward. Someplace with a bar menu would be fine. Would love a bar that has beautiful decor and/or xmas decor. Maybe something at one of the hotels nearby? Somebody recommended the King Cole Bar. Other recommendations?

  1. Del Frisco's has a large bar with a bar menu and they are right there in Rock Center, only a short walk away. Not sure about their decor, but the views of Sixth Avenue are pretty good.

    For the ultimate experience you might consider the Sea Grille, which looks out onto the ice skating rink, and if you have the right table you should be able to see the Christmas Tree. I think they only have a service bar, so you'd have to reserve a table.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your night wherever you end up going.
