The Best Rooftop Bars In Every NYC Borough
With Labor Day right around the corner, Summer is officially coming to a close and, as far as I’m concerned, that means two things.
On the one hand, I’m pumped for Summer to be over. No more spending obscene amounts of money (and energy) I don’t have going out of town every weekend, no more drinking outside every day after work and no more dodging interns everywhere you turn. That part of me can’t wait for Fall to start and for me to get my life back in order.
But then, alas, there’s the other hand. The part of me that doesn’t want the Summer to be over. The one that loves walking around the city on warm Summer nights. And who enjoys exploring all of the city’s best rooftops and outdoor dinner spots.
Now we have almost a week left to make the MOST of Summer in the city and, I don’t know about you, but, to me, that means one thing and one thing only: hit up as many rooftop bars as humanly possible. And, if we’re really going to make the most of this adventure, that means we have to put some effort into venturing outside of our own comfort zones.
What do I mean by that? Well, I mean maybe it’s time to step outside of your own borough and check out some new spots. Need some help figuring out where to go? Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of the best rooftop bar in every New York City borough.
Brooklyn: 1 Hotel in Dumbo
Head to The 1 Hotel’s brand new rooftop for a cocktail in the pool while you enjoy the best view of Manhattan you’ve ever seen.
Manhattan: 230 Fifth Rooftop
The best thing about 230 Fifth? It’s a rooftop you can enjoy in the Summer and the winter within the comfort of your own heated igloo.
The Bronx: Billy’s Sports Bar
Next time you head over to a nighttime Yankee’s game, head over to the roof at Billy’s Sports Bar to catch a sunset drink with a view of the stadium.
Straight to you from the owners of Manhattan hotspot, Hotel Chantelle, Penthouse808 brings you an awesome bridge view that you can enjoy from a luxurious atmosphere.
Staten Island: Above Rooftop
A real hotspot for weddings, Staten Island’s The Above Rooftop brings you an ultra chic Manhattan vibe with an incredible view, especially during the sunset.
