Chelsea Bars & Nightlife
542 W. 27th St., Chelsea
Gallow Green is actually the rooftop of the McKittrick Hotel. When you first walk in, you might expect a woodland nymph to pop out from behind one of the lush arches. The cozy garden vibe here is neither pretentious nor touristy, and the views of the city are some of the best. Their unusual cocktails are keeping with the theme, with names like the Green Grass (a mezcal drink with pineapple syrup and thai spices) and the Dahlia (vodka steeped with roses, orange, and cranberry).
