The Crown $$$
This intimate lounge with generous patio is best known for an unusual, compelling view of Manhattan, from Chinatown north.
Salon de Ning $$$
Salon de Ning ticks off every modern cocktail trend in a beautiful bar with a 1930s-Shanghai theme.
Gallow Green $$
Inside the space that hosts the immersive theatrical performance *Sleep No More*, this rooftop bar is styled to be artfully abandoned, with a broken-down train car and beautifully unkempt greenery.
Magic Hour Rooftop Bar $$
Way beyond a rooftop bar, Magic Hour is a carnivalesque adult playground with mini-golf, a topiary garden, rotating carousel-style seating, and (unbelievably) more.
Refinery Rooftop $$
The Refinery Rooftop lures you in with its twinkling lights, exposed brick, and warm wood-as well as the Empire State Building looming overhead.
Hard to beat the views of Manhattan from the 22nd floor of the William Vale hotel; food and drinks are another draw for this Andrew Carmellini venture.
