700 Fifth Ave., New York, NY, 10019
at 55th St.
the prices are as high as the view
By iheartnycbars on 7/30/2009
Just like i said at http://iheartnycbars.wordpress.com: It was named after a Shanghai socialite of the 1930ts who loved to host parties: Madam Ning. Probably madam's parties were better, but I doubt she ever had such a view. Perched on the rooftop of the fancy pants Peninsula hotel, this place is much classier than any trendy velvet ropes club. And if the 23rd floor view doesn't give you a nosebleed the prices will. I cocktail costs $22 while a beer will set you back $16. So make sure you get that beer with the complimentary peanuts and a glass of water, so you can take in the scene without them taking you for all your paycheck. There is a small glass enclosure for rainy and cold winter days.
