Trying admirably to exude an aura of Deco luxe, this impressive space at the top of the circa-1928 Beekman Tower proffers engaging little nooks, tables à deux, dramatic 360-degree views and a serious and attentive staff. Even the cocktails have integrity. Still, something's amiss. Maybe it's the muddled postmodern/neo-Deco renovation, or the Kenny G. squeaking out of the speakers. Yes, you may have a perfectly romantic nightcap (sit on the right, for the most advantageous views), but the Top of the Tower is nevertheless not at the top of its game.Weddings
Situated on the 26th floor, this restaurant features a wraparound terrace that ups the romance factor. Long velvet drapes and slow-burning candles add atmosphere to the Art Deco dining room.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
