1. Gansevoort rooftop
Fantastic rooftop bar in Manhattan, just moments from NYC’s main attractions, which is perfect for a sunny summer afternoon but avoid the Meat Packing Bridge and Tunnel crowd at the weekends.
See the Gansevoort rooftop.
2. The Library Hotel
Great bar for evening drinks or afternoon coffee. Take a look at the Library.
3. Gramercy Park
Great downstairs bar and up on the rooftop too. Find out more about the Gramercy Park hotel.
4. Soho Grand
Great for indie muso celeb spotting. Check out the Soho Grand.
5. The Peninsular rooftop
Great views of the city and Central Park from this rooftop bar. Check out the Pen here.
6. The Hudson
Indoors and outdoors – great daytime or evening, gets very busy later. See The Hudson hotel.
7. The Royalton
Really cool hotel bar in Midtown Manhattan between Times Square and the Rockefeller Center. Great cocktails and you can hang out with the wannabe beautiful people – my mate Tony loved the place! Click here for details of the Royalton.
8. The Bowery
A little old skool on the decor but great cocktails. The Bowery hotel.
9. The Mercer
Great for drinks and food, upstairs or down in the basement! See The Mercer.
10. The Rivington
I love the restaurant here and the bar is a lively place to enjoy after dinner. Take a look at The Rivington.
There are three new additions to New York that I have yet to visit –
I’d welcome any comments from people who have been to any of these!
