    Hit the Top of The Standard at sunset for the ultimate eye candy with your specialty drinks and tasty small plates, or stop by for brunch in your best cocktail attire. They don't quit brunching until 5 p.m., so you know you're in for a good time.

    We like to think those people may end up happier than if they ate the utterly awesome fish sauce wings at Pok Pok, because Alma is just that perfect. It's a neighborhood restaurant that's been serving the neighborhood since 2002.

    The rooftop was just renovated, so to get an early look, head up there soon. Small bites include "Swine Candy": bacon roasted with molasses and spices, and tempura maitake mushrooms, with ponzu dipping sauce.

    There's no food served at the Ides, but if you want to eat, Reynard on the ground floor of the hotel offers a delicious seasonal menu that changes daily. Look for fresh veggie dishes, and hope for the soft shell crab with asparagus and crispy ham.

    Night of Joy serves classy cocktails like basil and lime gin gimlets and beet dill vodkas as well as rifts on classics like the cilantro Bloody Marys. The space is reminiscent of a Victorian speakeasy, with velvet furniture and a thick, wood bar.

    The roof is Parisian-inspired, with painted chairs and red umbrellas, and the menu is, too. Try the escargot or the steak tartar and wash it all down with some cold rose.

    Speaking of cocktails, there are lots of refreshing and delicious ones at Pod 39. Look for inventive takes on classics like margaritas. And if you're hungry, just downstairs is April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman's Salvation Taco.

    Just make sure you plan ahead. There's only room for 70 people, and so the rooftop is reservation only.

    Try the fried green tomatoes with pepper jelly aioli, crispy smashed potatoes with curry mayonnaise and the pickle pot.

    The seasonal cocktail menu, designed by mixologist Johnny Swet, features fresh- squeezed juices, syrups and bitters made in-house, along with garnishes and herbs from the hotel’s own organic garden.

    New this summer, Monarch's Scandinavian-chic lounge radiates glamour. Its picturesque views of the Empire State Building are almost enough to distract you from your $16 specialty cocktail.
