If you’re looking for a place to see and be seen in Midtown, this might just be it. Located on above the 30th floor of 530 Seventh Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, Skylark Lounge includes a bar and soon-to-open terrace. It required two years of construction and an $11 million investment.
As Savitt Partners Founder and President Robert Savitt explained, “I have worked in this area for more than 30 years and we have over 300 tenants. I know so many people and everyone had the same complaint, ‘Boy, we have nowhere to go to.’”
The bar is open Monday through Friday, with weekends reserved for weddings, private dinners and other events. In May, when the rooftop bar and terrace are open for the 141 people they will hold, people will have a view of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and the New Year’s Evve ball drop.
As Savitt explained his connection to the Garment District and to his vision, “My whole thing with the Skylark is that it will not only keep the fashion people that are here but it will also bring the ones who left back because now there is a place to eat and drink.”
The menu, created by Awerbuch and Kirsch, are sliders, lobster tacos and French frieds and more. The general manager, Andres Rizo, keeps everything running smoothly from 4:30 pm until midnight.
Skylark Lounge is definitely the new place to be.
