Today, let´s talk about something a little bit different. The weekend is right here so , that´s the perfect timing to select the best rooftop bars in NYC.
As the warm weather rolls in, it´s time to gear up for all manner of seasonal activities ranging from spring festivals to concerts in NYC and al fresco dining and drinking at rooftop bars. NYC’s top restaurants and bars are unveiling their best outdoor drinking places, including people-watching terraces and rooftop perches touting sweeping skyline views. From buzzy hotel hotspots to low-key first-date hideaways, raise a glass to the best rooftop bars in NYC.
The Roof at Park South provides a unique rooftop experience
with impeccable cocktails by Beverage Director Ted Kilpatrick
and menus created by James Beard Award-Winning Chef Tim Cushman .
The perfect complements to an unobstructed view of the New York City skyline.
Gallow GreenThe transportive vibe of Sleep No More, Punchdrunk’s interactive theater piece at the McKittrick Hotel, carries over to the venue’s rooftop bar. Named for a Scottish field where accused witches were hanged, Gallow Green has the feel of a garden party thrown at an abandoned farm.
Top of the StrandThe Strand Hotel’s 21st-floor drinkery boasts an uninterrupted sight line of the towering Empire State Building and first-come, first-served benches that offer a front-row seat. Don’t let the imposing main attraction blind you to the rest of the skyline—to your left is the lit-up crown of the Setai at 400 Fifth Avenue, and over to your right is the illuminated double-fin roof of the Epic.
What a find in touristy Times Square above all that neon: a hark back to New York’s Gilded Age at the Knickerbocker Hotel, recently reopened after many decades. The turn-of-the-century property is said to be the birthplace of the martini in 1912.
Salon de Ning at The Peninsula New YorkSet on the 23rd floor of The Peninsula New York, Salon de Ning just debuted a new Hamptons-inspired look for its alfresco lounge this summer. Crisp linens, oversized umbrellas and brightly coloured potted flowers give the terrace, which overlooks Fifth Avenue’s sparkling decadence, an air of the beachside resort.
Pod 39 RooftopThis rooftop bar, 17 stories above ground, offers a view of the East River, craft cocktails and light bites by April Bloomfield’s Salvation Taco. Sip the Salvation Margarita, a tequila, agave and lime juice concoction with a guajillo chili salt rim, while gazing at the vista.
