Best Rooftop Bars In NYC

NYC's Most Desirable Rooftop Bars

If you're looking for fine dining and the ultimate NYC experience, look no further. Between the funky neighbourhoods in downtown Manhattan to the buzz of 5th Avenue, there are rooftop bars to cater for all. These hangouts are perfect for kicking back with a drink or two, enjoying a view that will make your jaw drop. 


The Roof, Viceroy

Fly up numerous floors and walk out to a view that is pretty astounding. You can see Central Park from the balcony, and there is a really nice buzzy-atmosphere here. In the summer, the outside is opened up and they put out comfy couches, so you can enjoy the view in all its glory. A must-see if you’re in the city.

The James Hotel, JIMMY

The Soho rooftop bar, JIMMY, is a contemporary interpretation of a classic pub with a 1970’s New York twist. The brick glazed tile walls and fireplaces create a cosy, yet chic, year-round spot. The bar opens into the NYC rooftop pool deck during the warmer months, which is worth checking out. This bar offer some of the most spectacular views in New York, overlooking Midtown, Wall Street, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Le Bain, The Standard

As soon as you walk in and look out at the incredible view you realise why New York is so amazing. It’s impossible not to be impressed by this place. The deco glam slots into the heart of New York so well. I recommend booking a table before, as this meant we had a seat with an amazing window view. The natural light pours in, making it a great hangout for summer. You can probably tell I was impressed by the number of photos I took…
