The Best NYC Rooftop Spots

We can all collectively agree that the view from the top is the best view, right? Right. So it is far from shocking that rooftop spots are all the rage these days.

Here are a few of our personal favorites that are sprinkled across the NYC nightlife sphere.

The Attic

251 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10036

Located in a penthouse in the Hilton Garden Hotel on 48th, The Attic is a classically cool hotspot that offers clubbers both indoor and outdoor (read: rooftop) space to party in.

Bonus points for the always-interesting crowd and their extensive alcohol option list.

Monarch Rooftop Lounge

71 W 35th St, New York, NY 10018

Stunningly decorated and meticulously maintained, Monarch Rooftop Lounge can make all of your NYC dreams come true. It is nestled in the penthouse of the Marriott Courtyard Herald Square, which means that you are well-placed for a series of evening adventures. And the patio area allows you to take in a stunning view of the city.

Additional perks to heading here for a night out include an attentive staff and a decidedly refined—but not stuffy—atmosphere.

Gansevoort Park Rooftop

420 Park Ave South, New York, NY 10016

Gansevoort Park Avenue’s Gansevoort Park Rooftop has a solid happy hour, plenty of entertaining events (and regularly!) and an alluring ambiance.

Oh and positions you just feet away from some of the most incredible city views that you could possibly imagine. No biggie.

Pencil in an excursive to this increasingly popular hotspot ASAP. You won’t regret it.


17 West 32 Street- 14th Floor, New York, New York 10001

Chic without venturing into snobby territory, VU NYC is the perfect place to go for a relaxing weekend outing.  First of all, it’s heated (YUP), which means that you will not be forced to brace the rooftop winds while chilling with your crew. Secondly, the service here is simply superb.

It is also inside of the LaQuinta Manhattan so if a crazy adventure is a little more time-consuming than you had initially anticipated, you’re good.

The Roof

124 W 57th Street, New York, NY 10019

Epic moniker aside, The Roof is the destination of choice for NYC tastemakers. Unsurprising, considering that it is tucked away on the top level of the illustrious Viceroy Central Park.

Lounge in luxury while soaking in spectacular sights. We will meet you there.
