If you are going to be in New York City this weekend to celebrate Memorial Day, have a cocktail high above the city and take in the skyline at one of these spectacular rooftop bars.
Location: Midtown East
Located on the 30th floor of the Kimberly Hotel, drinkers can enjoy an array of signature cocktails as well as a large selection of beer and wine. Set on an ambient terrace, guests are surrounded by a web of sparkling lights and ivy-covered walls as they appreciate the view of the Chrysler Building.
Location: Lower East Side
Nurse a cocktail as you sit in the palm oasis on a relaxing chaise lounge chair. I recommend visiting on Sunday and Monday while they offer 2 for 1 drinks! Keep in mind, Saturday late nights are the busiest for this rooftop, so if you want to have a quaint bar experience, perhaps go during the week.
Location: Meatpacking District
Satisfy your cocktail craving while you soak in the birds eye view of the Meatpacking district at this rooftop bar at the Gansevoort. This high dollar bar is especially popular on weekend evenings, but transforms into something more quaint and casual midweek.
Location: Hell’s Kitchen
This open-air rooftop bar sits on the 33rd and 34th floors of the Fairfield Inn and Suit by Marriott Time Square. The decor mimics the location as it incorporates LED lit ceilings and floors to amplify your view of Time Square. If you sit on the South Terrace, you’ll find yourself sitting in one of many cabanas while sipping a Mile-High cocktail with Bombay Sapphire gin, peach liqueur, Chambord, and prosecco.
