With gorgeous interiors and cool vibes, Daintree is the best-kept secret with the best view in the city. Located on the top of Hotel Hendricks, Daintree is surrounded by many midtown tourist destinations (Bryant Park, Times Square, New York Public Library), but luckily, it’s not crowded by tourists but rather local business people coming in for a Happy Hour, romantic dates and perhaps girls’ night out. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the Empire State Building is perfectly framed surrounded by stunning views of downtown Manhattan.
The cocktails are very well crafted, oysters on the half shell are super flavorful and even their table popcorn (seasoned with chicken salt and seaweed) is sensational.
The best time to arrive is during sunset for the most amazing Instagrammable photos, which is also right before it gets filled with the after-work crowd.
