Where can we go for pre or after dinner drink and view the city?

So excited to be leaving in a few days and spending the holidays in NYC!

Here's our dinner plans,
Keen's Christmas eve
Marseille's (sp?) Christmas day night
Oceana Dec. 26th.
I think I did pretty well with our choices!?


120 W 49th St, New York, NY 10020

      1. For 12/24 and 12/25, definitely call bars ahead of time to confirm they are open.

          1. If you're spending any time downtown you get great and interesting views from the top floor bar (boom boom room) at the Standard Hotel. Warning though, it's often closed for private parties, particularly after 9.00, so definitely worth calling ahead.
