A skyline like New York’s never gets old, which is why New Yorkers love a good rooftop bar. Experience new views and vibes—not to mention some of the city’s best-kept secrets—by taking the road less traveled (and the drink less tasted). Make every hour a happy one at New York City’s best secret rooftop bars.
New York City sight-seekers, take note: the best place to see famous Manhattan sights such as the Empire State Building and Queensboro Bridge isn’t in Manhattan at all. For 360-degree views of the island (and some seriously tasty signature cocktails), head to the Z Hotel’s 5,000-square-foot Z Roof. From this elevated Long Island City lounge, you’ll be able to catch sight of the Chrysler Building, East River, and more—not to mention a great buzz.
