Oohhh Mondays... We all have a love hate (or maybe just hate) relationship with the infamous start to a long workweek. For anyone who knows about my crazy schedule knows that I never miss a beat, and this week will be no different. After a long day of work I grabbed a couple of friends and headed to my first fab experience in the city that never sleeps.
After a short cab ride we arrived in the trendy fashion district to midtown Manhattans Refinery Hotel. Walking in I immediately knew I would be returning. The ambiance was exquisite and intriguing. A few steps away from the main entrance we landed in Winnie's lobby bar. Immediately we were harmonized by live music and sounds of a piano. People watched enjoying the show from the bar and in the intimate seating area dimmed in candlelight. The timeless setting at Winnie's is not the only thing to enjoy, the cocktail list doesn't disappoint. They house an extensive beer and wine selection with its "prohibition era flair" to satisfy any high class, social enthusiast like ourselves.
Continuing our experience we were let into the elevator by a doorman who guided us onto the 13th floor. As the elevator door opened we arrived at Refinery's most popular rooftop lounge. The huge space housed the same intimate setting the hotel is known for. There was a bar lit by string lanterns and separate seating surrounding it. As we made our way to the bar I gazed outside the floor to ceiling windows that revealed the most breathtaking view of the Empire State Building. The view was just enough to make my evening worthwhile. My evening proceeded with fun conversation and laughs with the perfect cocktails to accompany them.
NYC never seems to disappoint and the Refinery hotel is a true reflection of that. This is the perfect place to experience for those who lavish in the finer things our favorite cities have to offer. This location is perfect for a casual happy hour with the girls or an intimate evening that can lead to endless possibilities the beautiful city of NYC has to offer.
The luxurious Refinery Hotel is located on 63rd W38th NY, NY right in the heart of it all.
