With the winter chill almost completely behind us, it’s finally time to enjoy the great outdoors. Marco De Los Rios, concierge at the W New York Hotel, has three top picks for the perfect rooftop lounges to have a few drinks with friends and enjoy this sunny season. “The Upstairs at the Kimberly Hotel is sexy and offers great service,” De Los Rios says. Boasting spectacular views of Midtown East, the lounge, which De Los Rios describes as “a bit exclusive” is a great spot to have a creative cocktail with a friend or a loved one. Upstairs has a retractable ceiling and is open year-round. Stop by on the weekend to hear a DJ spin tunes—and “make sure to be friendly to the bouncer to gain access.” The Sky Room is a lively venue perched atop the Four Points By Sheraton Midtown – Times Square. Patrons may enjoy an extensive selection of cocktails and appetizers while watching the sunset over the Hudson River. The space often hosts DJs, theme events and parties. In the Theater District, AVA Lounge is a hip, retro space on the roof of the Dream New York hotel in Midtown. The bi-level venue is the perfect spot for classic drinks and a night out on the town—complete with a sexy crowd and décor. With a great view of Times Square—and if you want to prepare in advance, “this is the place to plan your New Year’s Eve celebration.”
