The Skylark is so glamorous and elegant, it stands out even in the city that never sleeps, where rooftop lounges and bars are a dime a dozen. Located on the 30th floor of a modern building in NYC’s Times Square South, this luxurious cocktail lounge on weeknights and Abigail Kirsch event space on weekends enjoys breathtaking views of the Hudson River, the Empire State Building, Times Square, and the iconic Manhattan skyline. Opulent leather or velvet sofas are set in one of several relaxing spaces with soft lighting and light music background, perfect for enjoying a cocktail with friends and chatting without having to shout. The indoor lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows, but nothing beats the front row seat on the outdoor deck when the sun sets over Manhattan. The food is not the average pub grub, featuring small delights such as lobster tacos and pigs in a blanket with kraut grain mustard. Wash it all down with one of their signature cocktails, a glass of wine from the extensive and finely selected list, or an ice cold craft beer.
