I swung by the preview event for The Skylark a few days before its official opening (last Tuesday, October 29). Though there are few things that will bring my friends and I above 14th Street – particularly on a Friday night – checking out the latest venture of nightlife veteran (and awesome guy), David Rabin, was enough to bring us out of our downtown comfort zone.
Upon arrival, we navigated our way through the slightly daunting back hallway to the elevators, rode the 30 floors up and stepped out into a space that offers quite possibly the best Manhattan views I’ve seen to date. Though that is the standout aspect of the bar, the sexy, masculine decor is incredible, the cocktails are innovative and food menu far exceeds expectations for this type of spot.
With three floors of space, including a rooftop area, The Skylark is great for business meetings over drinks, outdoor seating, casual dates, entertaining out of town friends, first dates, groups, small plates and – I’m sure – will be great for spotting beautiful people.
Good For Business Drinks: Located in the heart of the Garment District, The Skylark is surrounded by not only the offices of the world’s most coveted fashion brands, it’s also within walking distance of the home of The New York Times and countless other powerhouse companies. There’s not much competition in the neighborhood so it’s sure to become the place to be for after work cocktails.
Good For Groups: You can reserve the rooftop, the small private area or entire lounge for parties – if you’re just looking for a place to chill with a few friends during the week, there are plenty of places within the bar to accommodate.
