On 39th Street between 3rd Avenue and Lexington Avenue is the Pod Hotel 39. With taqueria and cantina Salvation Taco located on the first floor and a packed rooftop bar up above, get there early to beat the lines and spend a night in the heart of Midtown. Enjoy a full Mexican menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner downstairs or head up to the rooftop for craft cocktails made with quality ingredients with options like a bossa nova, the three amigos or pitchers of margaritas.
