New York City has a lot going for it that’s worth appreciating, but one of its biggest draws to the city that never sleeps is summer time. Yes, an entire season is the main reason why so many people love NYC. There’s so many amazing venues all around the city that give ode to the warm season.
These venues boast summertime accessories that no one should live without when the temperature gets to over 75 degrees–rooftops and backyards. Everyone who’s ever lived in NYC know that these two things are like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, especially if you have either of these at your apartment.
Here are the best summer spots in NYC!
1. Revel NYC
This gorgeous spot has a year-round garden, so it’s more than summer time fine. With exposed brick walls lined in blooming flowers, it’s picture perfect. It’s summer time, so you want things to be easy and we all know that the most posh places in NYC aren’t the easiest at the door. But Revel is relaxed with the atmosphere that begs to be snooty, but the best thing is that it’s not.
2. Fish Bar
Sail away this summer right in NYC at this unique venue. Yes, you’re on a boat, that’s also a bar and restaurant. Just walk on–there’s no fee to sail, just the price of your food and drinks. Fish Bar is a 3-story 160 ft. yacht and seafood lounge and rooftop joining North River Lobster Company at North River Landing.
Summer time is all about being casual and Ainsworth has that vibe with a sophisticated terrace. It’s an experience to say the least. From oysters to crispy artichokes and lobster rolls to ribeyes, there’s so many amazing bites on the menu, you could come for the food alone.
4. The Chester
A biergarten right in Manhattan, yes please. It’s elegant and smack-dab in the middle of one of Manhattan’s biggest scenes–the Meatpacking District. Nestled in the Gansevoort Hotel, this wonderful oasis offers some of the most refreshing drinks and mouth-watering bites ever. Hello Summer!
5. Little Town
Yassss brewhouse yasss! Nothing says summer like beer an lots of it. Little Town boasts almost 100 beers from local breweries and tasty bites that will be necessary because of all the beer you’re sure to drink. We’re not judging you, it’s summer!
6. Tonic East
This is a multi-level, open-air sports bar in the middle of Midtown East, so the view you’ll catch gives you all the city vibes you need to make you smile. Couple that with bar deep-fried and/or cheesy bar snacks, and you’re sold, right? Their rooftop feels like a urban oasis and their happy hour specials will keep you on their roof for hours.
This place boasts some of the most stunning views in NYC and summer time is always about the views. There’s a retractable rooftop, so rain or shine, you get that amazing outdoor experience. Your Instagram posts will be lit with the Hudson in the background of your pics, intoxicating cocktails to knock out your inebriation and delicious bites that are sure to please your taste buds.
