On the 65th floor of the Rockefeller Center, the bar offers a bird’s eye view of New York City. Some places are timeless; this is an unforgettable experience.
Like an eagle’s nest, Bar SixtyFive is perched at the top of a New York Art Deco classic, 30 Rockefeller Plaza. The bar is located in the legendary Rainbow Room, the pride of the Rockefellers, a treasure of the 1930s New York scene. Marvellously renovated, the space with a revolving dance floor is as glamorous as ever. Reservations are a must if you don’t want to stand in line. It really gets crowded just before sunset, as there is no better place to watch the sun go down in NYC. You feel like you are soaring ten feet over the city that never sleeps, in the scintillating lights of iconic sky scrapers.
Bar SixtyFive offers a to-die-for menu of small bites and cocktails, with a few options for larger plates. The list of small delicacies is endless. Between the delicious food and captivating atmosphere, you will not want to leave. Our personal favourites are the spicy nitro tuna, surrounded by a cool white nitro haze when it comes to the table; the tremendously tasty peekytoe crab toast; and the salmon and caviar cornets. If you want to go big, try the Clash of the Titans burger. It combines truffle cheese, lobster, bacon and several types of beef—you won’t forget this burger any time soon. The whole experience is a treat. And we have yet to even mention the wondrous cocktail list; we will let you sample it yourself. Some of the drinks are seasonal, so you should hurry. Trust us, it will be well worth it.
