Best Places For Happy Hour With A View In New York

Nothing is quite as magical as a really spectacular view of New York, cocktail in hand. These are the best spots the city has to offer to sit back, enjoy happy hour, and gaze longingly at the concrete jungle.

The Roof at The Viceroy

Located at the top of Viceroy Central Park, The Roof is an alluring lounge and outdoor terrace that offers guests the perfect place to take in the city’s soaring views of Central Park. The sweeping rooftop venue has maintained it status as one of NYC’s best rooftop views. The allure of the indoor bar is also tempting, and they make a mean old fashioned.486cd461fca1b8d41dabdb998116dfd0

Berry Park

Brooklynites swear by this rooftop bar that offers an extensive European beer list, a live DJ during weekends and huge flatscreens to satisfy your craving for sports.
