The warmer weather is a sign that rooftop season is officially here in the city. … An oasis from the hustle and bustle of the busy Manhattan street, these rooftops are open to everyone looking for a good time and an even better view. Don’t believe us…just take a look below:

Ophelia, NYC

Created in collaboration between Merchants Hospitality and Public Agenda, Ophelia is an opulent rooftop lounge atop the Beekman Tower in Midtown East. Set 26-stories above the bustle of the city, Ophelia offers 360-degree views of the East River and Manhattan skyline alongside signature cocktails. Designed to resemble an illuminating “jewel box” immersed in the skyline, Ophelia features restored elements from its original architecture and thoughtfully layers design elements from the 1920s and 30s.

The lounge features two outdoor terraces as well as indoor greenhouses, ideal for enjoying in the stunning views. Try new spring/summer cocktails crafted by Amir Babayoff including the Aegean Paloma with ouzo, grapefruit rose, pink peppercorn, and rosewater, and the A La Espanola with Nolet’s Gin, edinburgh rhubarb, ginger gin liqueur, juniper berries and Fever Tree tonic.
