Located on the 64th floor of 70th Pine Street, above the sister clubs Crown Shy and Saga, it's the cherry on top of a trio of great places to have a drink. The furniture is luxurious, the cocktails are clever, and even the ice is so nice in one of New York's most elegant cocktail destinations. Nubeluz, new to Nomad's Ritz-Carlton led by chef José Andrés, lives on the top of the 50th floor of the hotel. Its location offers accurate 270-degree views from 500 feet above the ground, and its menu includes novel and classic cocktails, including four non-alcoholic (non-alcoholic) options and a variety of snacks including caviar, oysters and grilled cheese.
The bar on the 29th floor of the Hendricks Hotel has comfortable sofas and armchairs, an exclusive menu for martinis, sweet and savory snacks, unlimited chicken, salt and seaweed popcorn to accompany your drinks, and an incredible view of the Empire State Building. Grab the pair of chairs on the far right, near the window wall, to take photos that you can take and post to your Instagram. Toast to the charm of a storybook, 14 stories above Madison Avenue, at the Library Hotel. The glass enclosures allow you to enjoy a panoramic view of the city center.
In addition, there is a fireplace in the section dedicated to the topic “The Writers' Den” and a good selection of books, in case you forget to stop by the main branch of the New York Public Library, nearby. The latest from the Wythe Hotel has an impressive array of cocktails, wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages, seafood-focused snacks, and larger plates. The Blondeau Bar also offers panoramic views of Manhattan beyond the East River through huge windows. This is the reward for the moments spent in Times Square.
Its two floors (40 and 41) of the Hotel Aliz are intended to evoke time travel themes from “James Bond” and Art Deco, but the sum of those parts avoids falling into the real “thematic” territory that can be found in other nearby operations. Its cocktail menu also aims to include liqueurs from New York State. Take the exclusive 22-story elevator to the glittering top of Williamsburg's tallest skyscraper. The elegant industrial space has incredible views through floor-to-ceiling windows for when it's too cold to wet a toe on the large terrace.
Although you might be seduced by the Chrystie Bar, the public hotel's shiny new cocktail bar, the rooftop views will still captivate you from above. The Roof has a 360-degree urban landscape, DJ sets and thousands of square feet between its indoor and outdoor areas. See the stunning New York skyline from the 21st floor of the 50 Bowery Hotel. It has a terrace to pose optimally, of course, as well as space to rest in the most toasty space inside.
See the glittering city as if it were a group of icicles inverted over beer, wine, cocktails and snacks. This FiDi bar looks elegant, but you can come dressed casually, the staff is very friendly and any photo you take outside could be directly on a postcard. Since this place limits the number of people in the indoor room to about 35, it never feels crowded. However, the real reason to come to Overstory is the huge outdoor terrace, which is wrapped in an uninterrupted circle and has a surprisingly large number of tables and chairs.
No food is served at Overstory, so come here for a date night after dinner when you feel like being outdoors. The skies of New York City are a beautiful canvas painted with bright stars and colorful sunsets. This is why bars take their rooftop place very, very seriously. Castell Rooftop is the jewel in the crown of the AC Hotel in Times Square.

The bar offers an incredible selection of whimsical cocktails made from a creative reinvented list of classic drinks. You'll be surprised how delicious their creations are, every sip will stay in your mind for a long time. What stands out most are Smoked Manhattan with whiskey or rum, Beeswax Old Fashioned with bourbon and Night Cap with vodka and espresso for a bolder choice.
The Cloud Rooftop Bar is located at the top of the five-star Knickerbocker hotel. Immerse yourself in the glory of skyscrapers while enjoying a mix of nightclub and outdoor rooftop bar with musical selections that set the tone above Time Square, with the New Year's Eve dance just across the street. The cloud experience comes at a higher price than some of the bars on the list, but you can't just ignore the fact that what you pay will never be enough to enjoy extraordinary views and ambience, as well as impeccable service and delicious food and drinks. That said, don't miss the chance to try their Miss Pavlova, with Empress 1908 gin, Italicus liqueur, St.
Germain, Lemon Juice and Grapefruit Juice, or Saints and Sinners with Kettle One Cucumber and Mint, Singani 63, Yuzu Lime Soda, Lemon and More.

Another of their special cocktails is the Purple Rain, which combines Empress gin, lychee liqueur, lime and edible flowers. Elsie Rooftop, named after the influential high society personality of the 1920s Elsie de Wolfe, needs no further introduction. This exclusive lounge and rooftop terrace has a beautiful design that combines modern and classic designs, an ode to the title of Lady Mendle as the first female interior designer. It's worth taking a look at their extensive list of cocktails, sangria, wines and other beverages, but you'll miss out on many if you don't prioritize their saving beverages, such as Elsie de Wolfe with Ketel One cucumber and mint, lemon, sparkling rose from Chandon and rosewater; a divine concoction called Sunset, which is Empress 1908 gin, homemade strawberry lemonade and soda; and Versailles, which is Angel's Envy, rosemary, canton ginger and agave blended in harmony.
Feel at home in Mr Purple's spacious outdoor rooftop bar while enjoying the stunning Manhattan skyline. The bar, located on the 15th floor of Hotel Indigo, reflects the vibrant and creative spirit of the Lower East Side.

Overstory's food menu is also a trip around the world, so try their sauces with 26% falafel and raw scallops. The modern rooftop terrace is an outdoor space full of loud music and youthful touches that enchants you and tells you to relax. We recommend that you try your Margarita; a pitcher would be a better option for the group.
Harriet's Rooftop is a must-see bar that offers picturesque views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, the Statue of Liberty and the city, as if you had to see New York from several points of view.
