Midtown East has a variety of after work bars, but Bookmarks stands out for its rooftop, reservation option, and convenience. Located near Grand Central and not far from Bryant Park, Bookmarks is a great place to have drinks and a small bite.
You’ll see colleagues catching up, but it is equally well suited to a date. The space is relatively large and apportioned between several rooms and an outdoor area. If the weather is nice, ask to sit outside or alternatively, in the room by the outdoor space, which is a bit more light filled.
Bookmarks is a good option and one to keep in mind if you are meeting in midtown east; don’t go out of your way to try it, but give it a shot if you are nearby and want to meet someone for drinks on a warm evening.
