The 2nd floor lobby bar and lounge is huge, hip, and high end. That said it is open to anyone and there is a pool table.
Another beautiful rooftop on the Lower East Side, one of my favs! Try to go early in the night or during the day to avoid lines. Not ideal for groups > 4 at night as door can get tricky.
This is my favorite rooftop bar in the entire city. I think it has the most sweeping views of any of them. It is swanky and hip and very much "in" right now. I highly recommend going here for a drink once.
“Quality!!!! Probably my first recommendation for brunch. Beautiful little restaurant and cozy all at the same time- great food and quality. Amazing shop is attached you should look at (Roman and Williams- famous architects so have some pretty cool things things there). Also fantastic cool floral arrangements since Emily Thompson flowers is also in the space). This is a must go to! And personal favorite. ”
“A NYC classic. Just sit there, sip coffee (or pasta 😊), and people watch ;)”
“This sultry lounge, outfitted with jewel-toned velvet couches and antique mirror columns, has a DJ spinning on weekend nights filled with pretty people partying until the wee hours of the night at the 11 Howard hotel. If you don't want to reserve bottle service, be sure to show up when it opens to have a chance of getting into the Soho spot. ”
“Launched in 2005, No.6 began as an under-the-radar shop in the Little Italy/Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan, carrying curated vintage and European designers. Since its advent, No.6 has garnered a cult following for their handmade shoes and aspirational yet accessible ready to wear collection.”
