Restaurant Rolodex: Springtime’s Best Rooftop Bars Throughout NYC

It’s 75, sunny, and a Saturday. Like most New Yorkers, you are probably looking for a nice place to sit outside, drink in hand, as you relish in the final sunny hours of the day. While it would be great to have a lush, private outdoor terrace with a good looking gentlemen in his early 20’s (preferably with an Australian accent) making sure you never have an empty wine glass, most of us need an outdoor drinking game plan (sad emoji). Cue our annual list of go-to rooftop bars that will be a crucial part of your upcoming social calendar…. and city living sanity.

From Williamsburg looking north to Chelsea looking west,  we’ve rounded up the best views (with the least amount of tourists) to grab a drink and cheers your better half to warmer nights in our gorgeous city.
