Rooftop Bars and Terraces in NYC
Start by getting that fresh air we were talking about and seeing the city from above. After all, what’s the point of being surrounded by skyscrapers if you don’t get to climb one of them? Check out our blog for a list of rooftop bars and terraces in New York that will take your breath away. While not all of them are close to Times Square, all of them are located near top attractions that you’ll probably be visiting anyway!
Our two favorite bars from that list are the St. Cloud Rooftop at The Knickerbocker and The Refinery Rooftop Bar. St. Cloud has spectacular views of Times Square from its Sky Pods, creative cocktails and a sophisticated atmosphere. For Empire State views, go to The Refinery to see the iconic skyscraper in all its glory while drinking at a bar with a retractable glass roof.
