The nightlife scene in New York is like no other, and NYC Spring is simply the best, so put them together and what do you get? Rooftop bars! This much-awaited Spring will be booming with hot new bars and tasty classics. We’re looking forward to the newbies, but oh how we miss our faves! As soon as it gets a little warmer and rooftop bars open their doors, we expect to see you at these five haute spots, drink in hand.
230 Fifth Rooftop Bar
Offering one of the greatest views of the city, the 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar is NYC nightlife at its best. With an ample cocktail menu that varies each season, this haute rooftop is a meeting place for some of New York finest, as well as for locals and visiting tourists. The atmosphere is lively and chic and this Spring, the air will be booming with city joy.
In the heart of Williamsburg, this super hip neighborhood bar is the essence of New York in the Spring. With craft cocktails and delightful high-end treats, Juliette offers unparalleled happy hours and elaborate menus from morning to dawn. For dinner we suggest the Crispy Duck Confit and a Hemingway’s Little Secret Cocktail.
The hautest rooftop in the city with the spunkiest cocktails, the high-end outdoor bar at the Wythe is a local favorite. The crowd is upscale and refined, while the drinks are strong with a touch of citrus. Boasting the best views of the sunset over the skyline, this rooftop is a must.
We couldn’t help but include this Brooklyn classic. We all know that’s where the cool kinds hang these days. With a myriad of tasty cocktails such as Juniper Pyrus (Hendrick’s Gin, pear, lemon, candied ginger) and Ancho Rye (1776 James Pepper Rye, Ancho Reyes Chile liqueur, orange), there are options for everyone at this hot spot.
Picnic-like in the hautest way, this breezy rooftop bar serves some of the juiciest burgers and tastiest traditional cocktails in the city. Enjoy the tranquil Spring atmosphere and sip on a Spicy Paloma, made with
Milagro tequila, orange liqueur, fresh grapefruit juice, red chili and lime, it is a crowd-pleaser.
