Guest of a Guest shares the top rooftop bars for drinks with a view across Manhattan. Our top picks are below, say cheers and check out the full lineup here.
The Fleur Room
You’re going to want to stop to smell the flowers at The Fleur Room, the trendy new bar at the Moxy Chelsea located on the 35th floor. The glass-enclosed jewel box of a lounge offers 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline, and once the warm weather hits, the glass walls retract to create a breezy sky veranda.
The Fleur Room, 105 W. 28th Street
Like an island on acid, Make Believe is the trippy pink paradise at the SIXTY LES. Featuring a seasonal cocktail menu as well as a selection of Japanese sake, Suntory whiskey, and a line-up of world renowned DJs, it’s the best option to get down under pink palms and a disco ball.
Make Believe, 190 Allen St.
An expansive indoor/outdoor lounge, Mr. Purple at the Hotel Indigo is a swank spot for everything from after-work drinks to a quick dip in the pool. We love the panoramic views of the Lower East Side.
Mr. Purple, 180 Orchard Street
Azul on the Rooftop
Transport yourself to Old Havana at the Hotel Hugo’s Azul on the Rooftop. The sizzling atmosphere is almost as hot as the Cuban-inspired bites and 360-degree views. Don’t worry, you can cool down with a frozen passion fruit cocktail.
Azul on the Rooftop, 525 Greenwich St.
A Meatpacking mainstay, the swanky CATCH Roof is always buzzing for lunch and dinner. Guests can dine and drink al fresco in the 3,000 square foot indoor/outdoor penthouse and enjoy the beautiful weather on the terrace.
CATCH Roof, 21 9th Ave.
