Bars or lounges with killer views

I am planning a trip in September 09 for our honeymoon in New York. I want to surprise my fiance by taking her to a rooftop bar or lounge for cocktails. Can anyone advise on accessable places as i understand some like A60 lounge is very exclusive. Im just after a bar or lounge which offers fantastic views without sleeping in the hotel. It does not have to be rooftop as long as the views are great

many thanks Dave

1) You posted on the NY Forum instead of the NY CITY forum which gets a lot more readership. It's here


2) Here's a list of restaurants with views, many of which have bar areas.


3) There are lots of different views, some inside, some rooftop outside. Most hotels don't require you stay there to use their bar, rooftop or not. Some are very fancy and some are not. The Peninsula hotel just off 5th ave. has a nice rooftop bar that's recently been redone (have not been there since it reopened).

I rarely respond to the NYC posts. But this question caught my attention because a few years back I was in NYC for the New Year celebration and enjoyed the bar/lounge at the Mandarin Oriental. It was a beautiful view of Central Park the NYC skyline. I would imagine that being there at dusk and seeing the buildings all light up would be just amazing. We were not staying there. I would have enjoyed it more if we were more dressed up ... the staff were gracious and never blinked an eye but I had on a faded pair of jeans and a duster (looked like I was from the outback). But still...gorgeous view.
