Don’t let the cold stop you from enjoying the coolest rooftop spots in NYC, from a bespoke dining event in FiDi to a penthouse with cozy igloos.
Resident in the Financial District
When it comes to special culinary experiences, Resident believes the right environment and ambience can be just as important as an enticing menu. Check out its upcoming alfresco dinners at the Broad Exchange Building’s 2,838-square-foot penthouse balcony.
Serra D’Autunno by Birreria in Flatiron
Eataly takes “sweet escapes” to an even sweeter level with its autumn-themed rooftop restaurant. The harvest-inspired look features warm beehive decor and a rustic menu with honey as its focal culinary point.
RH Rooftop Restaurant in the Meatpacking District
How do you make a 90,000-square-foot design gallery even more impressive? You add a chic indoor and outdoor restaurant on the roof, where diners can indulge in artisanal wines and upscale dishes, surrounded by lavish chandeliers and lush greenery.
Top of the Box in Greenpoint
Put this one at the top of your list. Unparalleled views of the city (Manhattan, Brooklyn, and LIC!), margarita pitchers, and glass doors that will keep the party going rain or shine make for a one-of-a-kind date night.
The Greens at Pier 17
Pier 17’s new open-air rooftop space may have saved summer 2020 with its quaint mini lawn areas and socially distanced games, but there’s much more to celebrate this winter. Now you can enjoy cozy dining cabins, seasonal menus, and custom-curated drinks by NYC’s iconic cafe, Dante.
230 Fifth Rooftop Lounge in NoMad
Raise a glass of hot whiskey cider or mug of pumpkin pie hot chocolate inside one of 230 Fifth Rooftop’s cozy igloos, heated to keep you cozy all season long.
The Penthouse in Long Island City
Waterside dining doesn’t get better than at the Ravel Hotel’s skyline lounge, where we highly recommend the social style (and distanced) prix fixe dinner from chef Seth Levine.
