With outdoor seating in Manhattan at a premium, the massive roof deck of 230 Fifth makes for an instant hit. Decorated with palm trees and petunias, it gives space-cramped New Yorkers ample room to bask in the warm breeze of summer or shiver in the winter chill (when the venue kindly provides crimson Snuggies for guests). The downstairs Penthouse may confuse patrons into thinking they entered an '80s movie theater, thanks to the purple and aqua decor, but the place works its retro charm well.
