Trying admirably to exude an aura of Deco luxe, this impressive space at the top of the circa-1928 Beekman Tower proffers a baby grand piano, 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), and things pick up when a pianist starts tickling the ivories around 9 p.m., but the Top of the Tower is nevertheless not at the top of its game.Weddings
Situated 26 stories above the street, this restaurant features live piano entertainment and a wraparound terrace that ups the romance factor. Long velvet drapes and slow-burning candles create an Art
Deco setting in the main dining area. From $125 per person.
Top of the Tower stays open for cocktails until 1 a.m. Sun.–Thu., and until 2 a.m. Fri.–Sat.
