1.Sky Room Bar
One of the most popular lounges is located 400 feet above Manhattan, on the roof of the Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Times Square. The name says it all: The Sky Room Rooftop Bar lets you have spectacular sights on pretty much everything thanks to its 360-degree view.
- Haven – Rooftop & Restaurant

3.mad46 – Rooftop Lounge
You can find the rooftop lounge on top of the Roosevelt Hotel New York, located on Madison Avenue near Bryant Park. mad46 is a true insider tip, as it’s lesser known among tourists and therefore also less crowded.
4.Attic – Rooftop Bar & Lounge
One of the best rooftop bars in New York can be found above the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, between 8th Avenue and Broadway. As with all of our favorite rooftops, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding streets and buildings. The rooftop bar is called XVI Rooftop Bar and Lounge, as its design was inspired by Louis XVI, the last king of France.
5.Refinery – Rooftop Bar
You will find Refinery Rooftop Bar in walking distance to Bryant Park. Its cute and compact terrace lets you gaze at the beauty of the Empire State Building. Having only 3,200 square feet, it is surely not the largest on the list. Regardless,Refinery is still one of the best rooftop bars in New York, with its terrific location and great drinks.
6.Bar 54 – Rooftop Bar & Lounge
Bar 54 is one of the most poplar rooftop bars around Times Square. You will find it above Hotel Hyatt Times Square New York, specifically on the 54th floor (hence the name). Bar 54 is an excellent choice no matter the weather! In case of rain you can simply relax in their indoor lounge. What strikes us most about the rooftop bar is that the owner takes great care to ensure that all used ingredients are produced locally. Oh, and there is an outdoor fireplace!
7.Plunge Rooftop – Rooftop Bar & Lounge
This rooftop bar and lounge is located above The Gansevoort Hotel – one of many fantastic upscale hotels in New York. Come here if you’re into fancy decor and relaxing music. Plunge Rooftop Bar is also known for celebrity sightings. Better have your cell phone ready!
8.Catch Roof – Rooftop Bar
CATCH Roof is our newest discovery! Say goodbye to having poor weather ruining your New York rooftop experience – CATCH Roof is prepared and offers a lounge with extremely large windows that make you feel pretty close to sitting outside
9.230 Fifth – Rooftop Bar: The Perfect View of the Empire State Building
230 Fifth is a real gem. Located centrally on 5th Avenue, its marvelous view makes it one of our favorite rooftop bars in Manhattan. The view of the Empire State Building from here can’t be beaten. In the winter, you can sit down in their heated igloos and experience the views from there: A must-do during the cold months! The igloos are incredibly popular, so be ready to possibly wait in line. We say it is worth the wait, as it ranks very highly among the best rooftop bars in New York.
10.La Birreria – Rooftop Bar near Flatiron
Truth be told, we passed this location many times without even noticing the rooftop bar at all! We eventually discovered it after watching a documentary about New York local and beer expert Sam Calagione on DMX. He’s very creative with his beers and combines the most unique flavors. If you are looking for something special or you’re simply a beer lover, then this is the place to go! Best Rooftop Bars In NYC
