Jimmy is on the roof of the James Hotel in Soho, and it’s better-looking than your average rooftop bar. It also tends to attract good-looking people. So put on something nice and try to meet someone who owns a boat. Or, you know, just people watch. There’s an indoor lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows, and there’s an outside patio with a pool in the middle. Bring a bathing suit if you’re really going for it, just be aware that this place gets pretty busy.

Lupe’s East LA Kitchen
Lupe’s is a California-style Mexican restaurant on a corner in southwest Soho. It feels like a fun diner, and it’s where you go for casual enchiladas.

Westlight is the cocktail bar and restaurant on top of the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg.
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.
