There is nothing quite like the New York City skyline on a summer night. With a slight breeze, cocktail in hand, and the sparkling of city lights, it’s the stuff of daydreams. Relaxation at its finest, but with a twist. Pull up a bar stool and keep the drinks flowing. In the city that never sleeps, these hotels offer both a relaxing atmosphere and a place to keep the drinks and laughs going all night long.

The Rooftop: NoMad Hotel

Decorated in sumptuous velvet and gorgeous leather, the NoMad Hotel is one of New York’s trendiest venues. The quirky art and beautiful colors extend to the rooftop, where you can rent the space for a completely unforgettable rooftop dinner party. Take in the sights from the 12th story in an indoor/outdoor space that offers breathtaking views of NYC’s most iconic skyscrapers. Feeling more low-key? Grab a cocktail with your friends at tables divided by borders of grass.

The Penthouse: Hotel on Rivington

This penthouse is definitely more than just a rooftop. Situated in this famous Lower East Side hotel’s penthouse, three stories of glass allow a 360-degree view of the Big Apple. The geometric and modern lines give the event space plenty of room for your guests to explore and take in all that there is to see. Daytime events allow for breathtaking views of the concrete jungle—but being surrounded at night by the shimmering lights of Manhattan is an event experience your guests won’t soon forget.

Gallow Green: The McKittrick Hotel

Most trendy New Yorkers have experienced (or at least heard of) Sleep No More, the theater experience housed in the gorgeously gothic McKittrick Hotel. But the rooftop is the real show stopper. Gallow Green at the McKittrick Hotel is draped in vines, twinkling lights, and woodwork, which creates a unique experience for guests. The rooftop is like a modern enchanted garden, creating a truly one-of-a-kind rooftop environment, perfect for throwing a dramatic evening event. And the space boasts a large bar for all the cocktails you desire.

Mondrian Soho Penthouse

To say that entering the penthouse of the Mondrian Soho is like entering the Secret Garden is an understatement. This event space lends itself to multitudes of transformations, making it a terrific space to suit any taste. The beautiful leafy terrace offers unparalleled views of New York City, all while surrounding your guests in a minimalist yet elegant atmosphere, perfect for private parties, intimate weddings, or other equally breathtaking events.  

Sheltering Sky: McCarren Hotel and Pool

It can be said that the best views of the New York City skyline can actually be seen from outside Manhattan, and the Sheltering Sky at the McCarren Hotel in Williamsburg offers a breathtaking view of the City in a cozy and intimate atmosphere. The space wasn’t designed to be full of velvet rope; it’s open to anyone who is looking for a trendy space to hang out in with a cocktail. The rooftop is decorated with such Moroccan accents as hanging lanterns, woven rugs, and ottomans that create an inviting and relatable place to kick pack or party it up. From the spectacular rooftop oasis, you can view the sparkling and sleepless island of Manhattan from the plush sofas and loveseats around the rooftop bar, with equally beautiful views of McCarren Park.
