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!?

Thanks,
Carolann

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

          Lobby Lounge in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Great views of Central Park from 35 stories up.

            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.

              Spelling: Marseille.

              Your choices look fine to me, with the caveat that I haven't been to Keen's or Oceana, but I've read mostly positive remarks on both.
