So a friend of mine recently recommended this spot for a special date or evening with friends. On top of the Metropolitan Museum of Art there is a beautiful rooftop garden bar that overlooks Central park and affords incredible views of the Manhattan skyline.
The Met is always donation only, so I recommend paying a few bucks and then heading straight to the top! Enjoy one themed cocktail that highlights the current exhibition as you watch night fall. So romantic and it's a cheap date too!
