71 Gramercy is a rooftop clubbing location that attracts celebrities, expats, and party goers. It’s still, however, an ideal place to enjoy a nice dinner before dark. After the sun sets, things could get a little wild, which is good if you and your partner are both in a mingling mood. The drinks can be a bit pricey, although the in-house restaurant owned by Chef Carlos Miguel guarantees a most sumptuous dinner where you get your money’s worth.
