Formerly called Sutton Place, this bar should not be confused with the classically elegant neighborhood just a few blocks away. The utilitarian nature of this space—drink, mingle, watch the game—is echoed in its unimaginative décor, but what Midtown 1015 lacks in character, it makes up for in space. It boasts three floors, each with its own bar, including a rooftop drinking and dining area that can seat scores of loitering Sunday morning brunchers. Like many of its East side brethren, this bar’s roomy layout and numerous well-placed televisions attract the masses during daytime sports matches, so downtime at this joint seems few and far between.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
