Bars & Nightlife

Though perhaps not known for a non-stop party embraced by other neighborhoods, what you will find for nightlife in the area is excellent. Casual sports bars, cozy pubs for beer enthusiasts, elegant rooftop bars with breathtaking skyline views — whatever you’re in the mood for, it won’t be a challenge to find.

Sofia Wine Bar & Café

Located steps away from the Fifty Hotel & Suites, this pint-sized wine bar fuses the ethos of Italian wine bars and cafés with a chic New York sensibility. Here, pair your choice of over 50 bottles of wine from a rotating list with a number of delicious traditional dishes like house made gnocchi, assorted salami, and baked eggplant parmigiana.

Distance from hotel: 0.2 miles


One of the original pioneers of the hybrid restaurant-club scene in New York City, this buzzy bi-level concept offers a DJ-sound tracked nightclub downstairs and an upscale southern Italian restaurant on the ground floor. After consuming the likes of a 16 oz. Kobe meatball, eighteen-inch lobster-scampi pizza, and dessert of Oreo zeppole’s, dance the calories off downstairs.

The Campbell

For a sip of bygone New York, visit this sophisticated landmark bar and lounge connected to the Grand Central Terminal. The space has played many roles and passed through many hands throughout its storied history: it started as an office and entertainment hall to railroad baron and American financier John W. Campbell, but also served as a police station before becoming a bar in the late 90s. Despite several revamps, plenty of its original fixtures are still intact, including a stone fireplace and distinctive leaded-glass windows.

The Long Room 

Irish pub meets midtown lounge. Just far enough from Times Square, this dimly lit haunt caters primarily to the after-work crowd with plush couches and 44 beers on draft. Sidle up to the aptly long bar up front to grab a brew or choose from their long list of whiskeys or grab your drink and head over to the lounge in the back.

Connolly’s Pub

The Midtown East outpost of this homegrown, family-owned Irish pub chain offers a consistently good pub experience with a slightly upmarket flair. Soak up the beers with pub grub classics including Buffalo wings and spinach-artichoke dip or go bigger with a variety of burgers that include the standout Gaelic burger with Irish bacon, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions. And true to Irish pub fashion, you can also find a solid take on shepherd’s pie and bangers & mash.

La Cava

Brunch lovers take note, this sleek wine bar offers a great deal for all-you-can-drink brunch. Dinner here is also strong, with a fantastic selection of both Old World and California wines paired with a curated selection of cheeses and simple foods such as lamb chops, duck paté, and several Italian paninis.

Ophelia Lounge 

Perched atop the roof of the famed Beekman Tower, this indoor-outdoor cocktail lounge spotlights inventive mixology along with fantastic views of Manhattan and the East River. The name nods to the building’s history: it was once home to the only hotel managed entirely by women, and later became a social club for working women. Expect a mix of after-work revelers and tourists enjoying the opulent decor and thoughtful drinks.

If you’re sticking around for dinner, the bar offers a three-course set menu—with wine! —every Wednesday.

Stop by on Mondays after 4pm for Buck-a-Shuck, when you can get $1 oysters and half price keg wine and beer.
