Tucked away atop the AC Hotel at 260 West 40th Street (21st floor) is Castell, a chic rooftop lounge which just launched 'Tini Tuesdays. Their most popular martinis - classic, dirty, and espresso - as well as Cosmopolitans and Manhattans - will cost just $9, all night long.

On the other end of the pricing spectrum, Castell is also introducing a Dirty Caviar martini ($40) with blue cheese stuffed olives topped with caviar. If you are into savory, brine-y cocktails, this one is for you.

Castell stands out among the midtown rooftop lounges thanks to its sophisticated (while comfortable and welcoming), spacious design by Dan Mazzarini of BHDM. It offers stunning views of the Empire State building and a variety of seating options - from bar seating, to cushy (and private) padded benches and nooks along the outdoor patio.

Castell is open Monday - Thursday from 4-11pm, Friday from 4pm-midnight, Saturday 4pm-midnight, and Sunday from 4-10pm. They take reservations via OpenTable.
