Having a drink on a rooftop is one of those experiences you absolutely must do during your stay in New York City! This city offers more than 100 rooftops scattered across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and even Long Island City. Classics, trendy, sophisticated, or cool, there’s something for everyone and for all types of occasions. To help you get better acquainted, we’ve prepared a list of the best rooftops in NYC, by neighborhood. All you’ll have to do is choose!
Before we get started, here’s a little advice:
– Access to most rooftops is often forbidden to those under 21 years of age (the legal drinking age in the USA). Certain rooftops, which open in the afternoon, however, may accept minors. Be sure to call first or check out their website so you’re not turned away at the door.
– As in every bar serving alcohol in New York, you will be asked to show an identity card at the entrance. Remember to bring yours.
– Certain rooftops are highly sought after. Avoid peak hours of operation during the weekend (8pm-10pm) if you don’t want to wait in line to get in.
