If you are planning to go to New York or already spending a few days in the “Big Apple,” we recommend that you take a tour of one of its beautiful rooftop bars. It will be a fantastic opportunity to have a good drink, enjoy a breathtaking view and, why not, feel like a real “New Yorker”. These beautiful rooftop bars are among the favorite places for New Yorkers to spend their evenings. Be very careful, though. To enter these venues, it is mandatory to be 21 years old (in some rooftops, it is possible to join in the afternoon accompanied by a parent), show an identity document, and have an appropriate look. Entry to those wearing shorts, t-shirts, and flip-flops is forbidden.
After this premise, here is the list of the coolest and trendiest rooftops in New York.
