Hotel Hugo is in the relatively quiet area between the West Village and Tribeca, and it has two rooftop bars: Bar Hugo and Azul. Bar Hugo looks more-or-less like your typical upscale hotel rooftop, but Azul is vaguely Cuban-themed. You aren’t going to drink too much and suddenly think you’re in Havana, but they do have some fun, colorful decor as well as a few tropical cocktails. Think of this place as a slightly less sceney alternative to Le Bain, and get drinks here the next time you want a view across the Hudson.

Anfora is the sister bar to dell’anima. It’s more of a wine bar, but they also have cocktails and some great small plates.
Extra Virgin in the West Village is an excellent date spot and is as consistent as they come.
There’s something about pounding cheap beers and burgers here that makes you feel like anything is possible. When we finally decided it was go time for “Immaculate” Infatuation, we were sitting in Corner Bistro. A great burger, and a classic establishment.

A.R.T. is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Nomad, and it’s pretty low-key for how nice the views are. Stop by for a drink before a show at MSG.
The Met Rooftop
The Met Rooftop is a large rooftop bar on top of the museum that has an excellent view of Central Park.
Public is a hotel on the LES where you can go and pretend you’re in the Meatpacking District. There’s both a nice lobby bar and a busy rooftop there.
