ZERZURA –  Formally known as The Plunge at the Gansevoort Meatpacking. The lounge has since been transformed into this modern Saharian inspired chic and stylish rooftop venue located in the famous Meatpacking district. Offering light bites, cocktails, great music, stunning views of NYC, and an overall great time. Who wouldn’t want to join the party.

LOOPY DOOPY – Now this rooftop is one of my favorites. A seasonal rooftop bar and lounge, a great mix to a happy hour and dessert. A modern lounge offering lite fares, craft cocktails, with stunning views of the harbor and the Statue of Liberty. This hidden gem is located at the Conrad Hotel in Battery Park at: 102 North End Avenue. My fave part about this place is their alcohol infused ice pops a great touch to your cocktail during those hot, steamy NYC nights. Best nights to check this gem out: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. My fave is the Prosecco with their signature pops.

ST. CLOUD- This upscale and luxurious rooftop is one not to miss. I mean the name says it all. Located in the heart of Times Square, with stunning views, lush living walls of greenery and private spaces, this is the ultimate rooftop and place to hangout especially during the summer months. A great escape after work to enjoy a cocktail, small bites by Charlie Palmer, and if your into Cigars this would be the ideal spot for you to visit. Located at the Knickerbocker Hotel at:  6 Times Square.


LE BAIN- Also located in the Meatpacking District this seasonal rooftop is the perfect spot to visit after a long day at the office or even a weekend hangout. This penthouse discotheque takes over the entire top area of the Standard hotel, offering a plunge pool, creperie and stunning views of lower manhattan. If you’re ever in the Meatpacking district stop by,  enjoy a cocktail, catch some sun, enjoy the views, take a dip or even take a bite out of a savory crepe.



230 FIFTH GARDEN ROOFTOP BAR AND LOUNGE –  This has to be my all time favorite rooftop. This was the first rooftop bar that I discovered and went to 9 years ago when I first moved to NYC. And it’s remain a staple and favorite of mine. Known as the largest outdoor garden rooftop in all of NYC with an enclosed penthouse rooftop and stunning views of Midtown and the Empire State Building. If your in the midtown area or just looking for a place to take in stunning views of the city that are postcard and Instagram worthy, check out 230 Fifth, which is also the address for this hotspot.

PHD ROOFTOP –  If your looking for the ultimate party head on over to the PHD Rooftop bar and lounge. With iconic panoramic views of the Manhattan Skyline, equipped with chandeliers, marble and a terrance, PHD Rooftop is the hottest party spot to visit this summer. Grab a bite, enjoy a cocktail and dance the night away at PHD Rooftop, this is one party you don’t want to miss. Located at the nightspot destination the Dream Hotel at: 355 W 16th St.

MR. PURPLE-  This ultra sexy and posh rooftop is located at the Hotel Indigo in the Lower East Side. With stunning views of lower Manhattan and two opposing roof decks this hidden gem will be a sizzling spot this summer. I mean even the name sounds sexy. Go for brunch, enjoy afterwork cocktails, host a party there, whatever the situation maybe this is one hot spot you’ll want to check out. Located at: 180 Orchard St. 15th floor of Indigo hotel.

 LA PISCINE-  It’s not as flashy or luxe like most of the NYC Rooftops, but it’s the perfect place to sit back, relax while enjoying a few cocktails on a nice summer evening. Take a dip and enjoy an all day pass at their pool for as low as $40. Can’t beat that!  Catch some sun and lounge on one of their daybeds and do try the food.
