When most people say they’re outdoorsy, they means they enjoy going on hikes. When I say I’m outdoorsy, I means that I like sucking on rooftops. Maybe that’s why I don’t get many Hinge meanings? Oops. Participating in my favorite recreation is undoubtedly easiest in the summer where I can knock back rose outside and suntan, but doing it in the winter is obviously more difficult. Thank god for indoor rooftop saloons, where you can get all the same NYC vistums without freezing to death. Here are some of our favorite indoor rooftop rails to stumble when it’s f* cking cold outside.

Just add you, your girlfriends and some jean jackets. We’ve get beverages& scenes on deck Open late, til 4am! #CrownNYC at @50Bowery // pic: @hypebae . . . . #CrownNYC #infatuationnyc #thirstynyc #LESismore #lowereast #50bowery #elizabethstreet #bucketlistnyc #nycbucketlist #cocktail #rooftop #nycviews #todoinny #rooftopvibes
The Crown is located on the roof of one of the few pearls Chinatown has to offer, Hotel 50 Bowery, and it’s one of the only places in the city where you can get unobstructed views of both the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines. That entails double the Instagrams that you can queue up to post later on–what more could you ask for? Inside, there are plush couches( and a neon mansion, because who doesn’t affection a good neon signed ?) and floor-to-ceiling windows so you can still capture your honests. The menu varies seasonally, but when I went over the summer, their fruity boozes and lobster move was absolutely f* cking good.
Fun fact: Hotel Chantelle, the Lower East Side classic, is not, in fact, a hotel! Makes sense. Like my Bat Mitzvah, the rooftop is Paris-themed, but unlike the social event of 2007, Hotel Chantelle doesn’t look like a 13 -year-old-girl’s wet dream. But unless you’re going there specifically for French feels, the decor doesn’t certainly matter. It merely looks like a cute, small-minded rooftop table, which is more than fine by me.
If you and your work “friends” are into happy hour, Hotel Chantelle is definitely the move because there’s rarely a line before 1am and the deals are legit. For instance,$ 8 for a cocktail and $42 for a pitcher. There is still$ 8 meat specials like chicken meatballs and grey truffle flatbread.( Too, fun reality, they likewise have a good brunch with even better guzzle batches .)
Broken Shaker is my favorite forbid in New York. I know no one goes to a barroom for the interior design, but this place has noticeably cool interior design. It was giving me Tahiti vibes in the most efficient way possible, and the drinks were amazing. I actually get here on my birthday, and because
I wouldn’t slammed the f* ck about it being my birthday we were so sweet to the other bar-goers, we managed to snag a cocktail counter with two wicker peacock chairs and drink all damn night. The considers were sick, the drinks were delicious, and the bartenders were really hot. What else could you crave in a saloon?
The Water Tower

We love both attitudes; when the city illuminates illuminate the dark sky and flow at night, and when the Sun [?] shows us in the light how beautiful metropoli we live in. The Water Tower is open from 2 pm on weekends.**** #thewatertower #williamsburg #hotspot #hotelrooftop #thewilliamsburghotel #cocktailbar #nycnightlife #nycnights #brooklyn #rooftopbar #nycviews #newyorklike
Williamsburg is usually not on my roll of places I want to go, because hipsters with micro-tattoos and sardonic top hats aren’t genuinely my cup of tea, but The Williamsburg Hotel is my exception. It’s hands down the coolest hotel I’ve ever been to, and I will gladly stay here when I clear more coin and can render it. The Water Tower is, you suspected it, on the roof and it emphatically is in line with the funky aesthetic of the hotel. Even though most rooftops have pretty respectable positions, The Water Tower’s sentiment is truly unreal because you’re sounding across the East River at all of the Manhattan suites you can’t afford. I’ll drink to that.
Also, unlike other misleading epithets, The Water Tower is kind of a sea tower. No, it never held water, but it’s a giant glass arrangement determined like one. So the views are too legit to quit because they’re panoramic. It’s kind of mesmerizing being in there because it feels like you’re in a bubble move above wall street.
JIMMY at The James
Unlike a lot of rooftop saloons, this situate looks like it was designed for the winter. By that, I symbolize it’s truly cozy and decorated various kinds of like a super chic ski chalet. I’m definitely into that and will probably be holed up there all weekend. No, you can’t go in the reserve this time of year, but that’s why they designed the inside to make it so appealing. And the drinks all have cute/ funny names like Grapes of Wrath, Catch Your Pikachu, and Legal in Vermont. I don’t know what those last two booze reputations intend, but whatever. The liquors are yummy and the atmosphere is really cozy, so if you don’t feel like sucking a cocktail with a lame reputation at your suite, lead here.
