Casual Dining, Event Catering

Classic cocktails, contemporary interiors, and spectacular views come together at The Skylark, an all-seasons cocktail bar in the heart of Times Square. Set thirty floors above ground, the lounge boasts sweeping views of iconic Manhattan landmarks through floor-to-ceiling windows and from the expansive rooftop terrace. The multi-level indoor spaces feature a mix of private nooks and communal seating areas—ideal for date night, after-work meetings, and SEMI-private functions, AND IS available for partial or full buyouts (depending on season and day of the week). In the summer, guests flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces, socializing over perfectly made cocktails and small bites, while taking in breathtaking sunset views.

The Skylark was developed by hospitality veteran David Rabin together with Abigail Kirsch.

David Rabin has a long and varied history in NYC’s hospitality scene. Currently, he’s a partner in The Lambs Club, Jimmy Soho and Veranda at the newly named hotel the ModernHaus, the recently opened American Bar in the West Village, and the newly launched Sona in the Flatiron District. His past ventures include Cafe Clover, Lotus, Union Bar, and Rex. A long-time Manhattan resident, David also serves on the board of The Times Square Alliance.

As one of the most renowned catering, event, and hospitality management companies in the tri-state area, Abigail Kirsch brings unrivaled expertise to planning and executing celebrations and gatherings. Serving Fortune 100 companies in finance, media, entertainment, non-profits, consumer products and more, the company operates several exclusive venues in the NY Metropolitan area and Connecticut, and also caters at off-premise locations throughout the region. Abigail Kirsch is also a partner with David Rabin in operating Veranda located in ModernHaus SoHo.
