Rooftop Bars

I know this typically pops up every year, but what are the best rooftop bars? Is it 230 Fifth?

      Trying to think warm thought in the snow. Any other suggestions?

        I hear you! I thought you literally meant "outdoor" on the rooftop. For a day like today, I'd say to hit The Lobby Bar at The Mandarin Oriental hotel. You CAN'T beat the view!

    2. A quiet but lovely spot is the rooftop bar at the Bentley Hotel, 62nd & York. Panoramic eastside view.

        I think Top of the Tower at the Beekman Tower Hotel is still going strong - Mitchell Place @ 49th & 1st. Just north of the UN.

          Has any one been to the roof bar at the Ritz in Battery Park?
