So you’re in NYC and you’re looking to go out! You want a fun, but classy time, and you’re not sure where to start. How about rooftop bars?


  1. Mccaren Rooftop Bar

This bar is a great place to get beautiful panoramic views and amazing bar bites as well as drinks (bonus: It has a pool!!!).

2. Refinery Rooftop

A great place to get amazing food by day, and a lively bar with a signature cocktail list made by Alex Ott who has a background in biochemistry (so his cocktails MUST be good!). Great views of the city and a bonus to the dynamic atmosphere you get at Refinery Rooftop!

3. Rare View Chelsea

Like burgers and cocktails? Rare View in Chelsea has got you covered. The Jameson Black Barrel Burger is an 8 ounce ribeye flambéed in Jameson Black Barrel with aged whiskey slaw and topped with Irish cheddar. Then wash it all down with a “Swipe Right’ cocktail which includes light rum, mango guava puree and jalapeno. What more could you ask for?

4. Bar Hugo

A classy rooftop retreat where your troubles just melt away. This bar has an amazing view of the Hudson river, the Freedom Tower, and the Statue of Liberty. In addition to the well-mixed drinks they also have a live Cuban band every Sunday! They have a dress code too, so you know it’s going be a classy night.

5. The Jimmy at the James

Last but definitely not least is Jimmy at the James! Gaze out over the beautiful view of New York while you sip your specialty cocktail and nibble on one of their delectable snacks or desserts (including a cheesecake lollipop tree!).
