Near Empire State Bldg... Smoking Allowed?

Stephanie_Lynn | Sep 17, 2008 07:50 PM

I am planning an event in mid-October for my staff... about 10 people. I would like to do an evening Empire State Building thing (we always do something touristy as most people don't actually live in NYC and several are visiting from other cities) with a dinner to follow.

My staff is made up of pretty hard drinking party types that also smoke. I know there are some places that have patio areas or gardens that allow smoking... is there anything near the ESB that allows smoking? Fancy or hip isn't important. Good booze and fun is the key for our group.

We would also be willing to travel beyond that area for a fun place that won't frown on smokers.

Thanks for any suggestions...
