Blue Bottle Coffee — Rockefeller Center
1 Rockefeller Plaza, Concourse Level Suit D, New York, NY 10020
Hidden under Rockefeller Center is this outpost of Blue Bottle, fueling hundreds of office workers, tourists and NBC employees every day—at least, the ones who know it’s there. (Tip: enter at 15 W. 48th St., continue past the reception desk to the left, and go down the stairs.) Don’t be put off if the line extends out the door; during peak hours this cafe runs two fully outfitted bars, and staffers keep the coffee and house-made treats (both pastries and pre-packaged to-go snacks) flowing in friendly fashion.
The selection of single-origin and house-blend espresso drinks and pour-over coffee is typical of Blue Bottle’s standards around the country, and all the accoutrements (take-home beans, brewing devices and various merch) are on-hand as well.
