After an exhausting day walking around Manhattan, you want to go to the hotel, get a good shower and get handsome to go to dinner and have a drink in New York. In this article we intend to help you choose the best bars in New York to go after dinner, and tell you some of my favorite places in New York night.

New York terraces

The first suggestions correspond to the places that are more fashionable, the terraces in height of Manhattan. It is probably easier to enter before after dinner, but always have a good photo to envy the return to go to one of these terraces and enjoy beautiful views of New York. My favorite high terraces are:

Very close to Times Square, on the top floor of the Hyatt Times Square hotel, is Bar 54, probably my favorite terrace with spectacular views of Manhattan. In this Article I leave some pictures to give you an idea of ​​the views, and in the Official website of the hotel you can reserve, in case you want to have dinner.

Another of my favorite terraces is the SixtyFive Bar, right on the floor below the Top of the Rock. They let you go up for the price of a drink, so it's a good alternative for those who want to go to the Top of the Rock and see its formidable views of Manhattan.

Also famous are the terrace of the Standard Hotel and the famous 230 5th Avenue, that is in Midtown, and in which they will even leave you a blanket so you do not get cold during the winter.

Greenwich Village, my favorite area

As for bars and clubs, no doubt my favorite area is Greenwich Village, with many places to dine around, like John's of Bleecker Street, Kesté Pizza & Vino or the best and most exclusive hamburger in New York, that of Minetta Tavern.

Unfortunately, in recent years, the record stores of Bleecker Street, and the mythical locals such as the nearby CBGB of the East Village, where legendary groups such as The Ramones, Blondie or Talking Heads were located on 315 Bowery Street, on the corner of Bleecker Street and now its place is occupied by a record store), there are still some redoubts in this neighborhood that should be visited. Cafe Wha? It is one of them, a place where people like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Hendrix were introduced in New York. and in which you will undoubtedly spend a very entertaining evening while you have dinner and / or drink something. Nearby, for jazz lovers is Blue Note, one of the temples of New York jazz and with its own record label, or Village Vanguard, another jazz myth in Greenwich Village. Of course, do not expect a very large place in these bars, as is the custom in New York if you do not fill the table completely it is likely that you will sit next to people to dine with you, and the separation between tables is usually not very large.

Blues and jazz in New York

And speaking of jazz and blues, New York has some of the best places in the world to listen to these types of music. You usually hear good blues performances at the BB King, located right next to the tourist Times Square, and as for jazz, apart from the Blue Note or the Village Vanguard, there are usually great jazz performances in the Birland, in Midtown, very close also to Times Square, and Woody Allen is left fall, and play his clarinet, from time to time, in the most exclusive Carlyle, located on the Upper East Side.

Something original on Broadway

For those who want to have an original experience, at Stardust, located very close to Times Square, the waiters want to win the cast in one of the Broadway musicals, so that from time to time they will interrupt our dinner to offer us some action. Here do not expect large plates of food, their food is typically American, good burgers and the like.

A quiet dinner and walk plan

As a last recommendation, for a quieter plan, and if you still want to walk and enjoy incredible views, go to dinner near Brooklyn Bridge Park, two good pizzerias like Juliana's Pizza y Grimaldi's Pizzeria We found them in the vicinity and we can always get off the pizza enjoying the night view of Manhattan as we cross the Brooklyn Bridge taking an ice cream from the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. For a romantic evening, without a doubt The River Café, right next door, would be my choice, although at a price consistent with a restaurant with a michelin star and with excellent views of Manhattan.
