Nestled atop the historic Beekman Tower, Ophelia is one of the city’s chicest rooftop bars with stunning views of the East River and the skyline. Once you enter the lounge, they will feel transported back to the 1920s and 1930s. From the intimate seating to old photographs and vanity mirrors, the space pays homage to the building’s original architecture. The cocktails are inspired by that era, too, so sit back and relax with The Flapper. The vodka-based libation is made Disaronno, lemon, pineapple, bitters and topped with champagne. Another option is the Top of the Tower, which is made with sherry, Campari, plum bitters and prosecco. The acclaimed food menu features avocado toast, ahi tuna tartare and a chef’s selection of three cheese from the Hudson Valley.
