Sympa la vue sur le parc, ca donne envie de s'y rendre.

i totally agree with you, Mandarin Oriental is one of the nicest spot in the city ;-)
Except you have to book a table to have an espresso at the bar!

I yesterday was more lucky than last time we were there. I was granted a table with the gorgeous view you have on the picture !

despite two visits at this place, never got the chance to get a table with the view. The new construction you mentioned is 15 CPW, a project undertaken by Goldman Sachs Asset Management. the building will be home to several GS honchos, the singer Sting, and the top property will belong to infamous activist (and anti-French)hedge-fund manager Daniel Loeb (Third Point). It's an all-time record transaction at 40ish million dollars ( read the captivating "The Sky's The limit"for luxury real estate in NY).
15 CPW is fashioned after the Art Deco Upper West Side style that made the glory of the San Remo,Majestic, and the nearby 55 CPW (the Ghostbusters building).

Sébastien, best is to show up between 2 and 5PM weekdays. You should then find a table with a view !

True, real estate is now booming in New York, with prices sky rocketting. I've heard that 2/3rd of the future Freedom Tower (in Ground Zero) is already rented, though it won't be completed before 4 or 5 years.

I may have to wait a market downcycle to purchase something. By then, I will have sold my Photoways stake !

Merci pour l'info. Je dois passer une semaine à NYC en mai...cette info tombe donc dans le bon timing pour moi!
J'en profite pour souhaiter bonne chance au projet Ushuaïa...je le suivrais de près. Vais peut être même envoyer mon cv! s'il est encore temps...

Cool shot of central park! There's a new hotel being built in Vegas called with the same name, it's part of the new MGM city center. I wonder if it'll be the same style or even the same company running it. I'd prefer NYC any day though, such a great city.

There are Mandarin hotels at almost all the places I've been to. I just love staying here and experiencing being pampered.

Mandarin Hotels have the best bars and restaurants that I have been to.

New York is a big city but still I love living here.

Point Break - A Perfect Bar Experience in NYC

A local friend recommended and took my Cali group to this amazing bar. He said that mostly locals came here so I didn't really know what to expect ambiance wise... but screw it, the view at this bar was absolutely breathtaking! No joke. I felt like a celebrity w/ superstar treatment as the staff are friendly and amazing to say the very least.

I don't know who the house DJ was but he definitely was playing music right up my alley. It would've been my dream for people to start dancing, but it's all good.

It's a bit sceney for my taste, but it really didn't bother me much. the bartenders knew their stuff, although their 1st cocktail was a little weak, when he saw i understood cocktails the next 2 were stronger. I also liked that even though the place was really hopping the bartender remembered what i was drinking when i came to order another. (he also understood how good a gin hendricks is, and not to overpower it with the mixer). It was amazing to see their “das boot” which is shaped like a boot filled with beer. Don’t get me wrong, I am not drunk…it’s an actual boot shaped beer container ready to be emptied..try it ..you will love it!! Oh..how can I forget, they even have a wheel o' shots where you just have to spin it and have to drink whatever shot it lands on!! Now call that bar creativity at its best!!!

We ordered the Veal and Fish Tacos. They were delicious. Mm! We ended up asking for spoons to polish off whatever remained in the platter. (Faux pas? Who cares as long as it gets in my tummy.) The fries were crispy, but not overcooked, just the way that I like them.

So take in this scene: You walk in to what seems like an overly crowded place, but soon fine an empty table. Time seems to stop and the only indicator of the night moving on is the moon and your brain cells slowly going to bed forever. The music is not to loud and the people around look good, the only thing left for you to do is to enjoy that drink you paid ridiculously low for and laugh at the joke your co-worker just told.

The vibe of the place just never seems to die out and if you happen to spot some NYC socialite, sports player, or star, don't let it get to you... because for that moment, this night they are no long more important than then you. In fact go up to them and introduce yourself!

All in all just a great place to meet new people, or just have drinks with people you already know. I've been to numerous bars in the city but i would say this place is just great. Very welcoming staff, very laid back ambiance. I’ve been here twice after my first visit with my Cali group . I would say its worth the every penny you spend!!
