Beekman/Sutton Place Nightlife

Amsterdam Restaurant & Tapas Lounge

Address: 1078 First Avenue

Tasty tapas and terrific margaritas continue to make this place a draw. The atmosphere is some hybrid of dungeon and Spanish Villa. Either way, it's the ideal setting for a good ol' time, but tends to be crowded when the working day is done.

Guastivino's

Worth a visit to see the spectacular interior design. This late-night favorite, located beneath the 59th street bridge, features a soaring tiled and arched ceiling. The service is hit or miss, but the food is consistently top notch. Oysters Rockefeller, crab cakes and pork chops are just a few of the house specialties.
