After our favorite rooftops in Bangkok, here’s our selection of New-York hotels rooftop bars. Careful though: some of them have a members/hotel guests-only policy. 

The Rooftop at the Empire Hotel


Ever watched Gossip Girl ? Then the Empire Hotel is the place to be. Enjoy great views on Lincoln Center & Central Park from the 12th floor of the hotel.

The Empire Hotel

44 West 63rd Street | New York NY 10023



A60 at the 60 Thompson


A60 is opened to the hotel guests and members. But if a private rooftop is what you’re looking for, A60 definitely is your place. The 60 Thompson also features a great thai restaurant (Kittichai), for those of you who miss Thailand every once in a while.

Soho House New York

The Gansevoort Park Avenue


Weird name, but great rooftop terrace on the 20th floor of the Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel. Enjoy great views on the Empire State Building and if it’s a little cold out there, you’ve got a fireplace too.

JIMMY at the James Hotel


JIMMY is the rooftop bar of the James Hotel. Though not the “hypest” in town, it’s still a good place to enjoy great cocktails (with home-made syrups and herbs) and have a smoke along the pool. If you’re not a guest of the hotel, you’ll have to wait until 9 pm to access JIMMY.

Cocktails: 15-18 dollars

website 27 Grand St, New York, NY 1001

Haven Rooftop at the Sanctuary Hotel


While we would not come for the food menu, the view seems to make it a great place to have an early-evening cocktail (we may be wrong on that one though).

Cocktails: 14 dollars

website– 132 W 47th St, New York, NY 10036

New addition:

mad46 at the Roosevelt Hotel


mad46 is the rooftop bar of The Roosevelt Hotel. You can organize private events or just go for a drink and some bites . Don’t forget to suit up (or at least leave your old pair of jeans at home, there’s a dress code). We have to say that (online at least), people seem to have mixed feelings on mad46.

Cocktails from 13-14 dollars
