Le Bain

New York is a city in constant motion and sometimes you need a break. So head up to Le Bain, the rooftop of the Standard Hotel. All your daily concerns will melt away as you take in the impressive Hudson vistas over a glass of wine and a delicious crêpe.


Empire Hotel

Gossip Girl is today's Sex and the City: the show that knows what is hot and what is not in New York City. If you've seen the show, the Empire Hotel will ring a bell. This rooftop is our top winter pick, because most of it is interior with huge glass windows that provide a great view of the city.

Shake off the Monday blues with a night of jazz at the Empire Hotel. Order a glass of wine, find a good spot by the fireplace and enjoy the live music.



Yes, it is true: wine tastes better on the 20th floor. The 230 rooftop boasts an exceptional view of one of New York's landmark buildings: the Empire State. The views combined with the venue's design, food and drink have turned 230 into one of the city's most popular rooftops.


Roosevelt Hotel: Mad46

After-work drinks are in, and New York does it in style. From the first days of spring through late October, an inspiring professional crowd gathers at Mad46 after a long workday to disconnect and socialize.

There are many reasons to fall in love with New York. The people, the city's energy, the myriad dining options or its multicultural identity. What we know for certain is that anyone who spends time on one of New York's rooftops will end up falling in love with the city that never sleeps.
