Whiskey Park’s Address: 100 Central Park South New York, NY 10019 (at Sixth Ave. – Midtown West)
Whiskey Park’s Phone Number: (212) 307-9222
Whiskey Park is a prime spot for meeting up with the boys (and girls who’ve been clued in to this type of crowd) after work. The happy hour flock is made up almost entirely of men in suits, coming off of a tough day at their midtown finance job and ready to get wasted before calling it an early night and repeat the next day.
Other than being good for business drinks, it’s also a fantastic bar for girls’ nights out (hint: it’s like shooting fish in a barrel), bar food, outdoor seating (in season, obviously), casual dates, watching sports, finding one night stands, first dates, guys’ nights out, cocktails/mixology and meeting rich guys.
Good For Business Drinks: While it can get slightly crowded directly after work hours, those populating the bar are generally professional enough that you can still have a conversation – should you find a seat. After 7 p.m. or so – as long as there are no major sporting events happening – it’s a convenient location and great atmosphere in which to hold casual business drinks.
Good Sports Bar: There are tons of TV screens, plenty of comfortable seating (though you should reserve a table beforehand if you’re heading there for a big game) and a pool table to keep you occupied during commercial breaks.
Good For First Dates: Again, don’t go if you’re meeting before 7 p.m. or you won’t be able to hear each other – however, if you’re getting off work in the neighborhood a little later, it’s a great spot to sit at the bar and chat while overlooking Central Park.
