Rooftop bars are a perfect place to catch up with friends, network or just to kick back and relax. And in New York City, there are plenty of amazing bar options that you can visit on holidays or during the weekends. To help make your life easier, we’ve rounded up nine editor-favorite rooftop bars in NYC and Brooklyn.

Originally constructed in 1928, the iconic, art deco Beekman Tower recently reopened its 26th floor as Ophelia. According to the lounge’s official website, it previously served as a women’s-only club and hotel space for the national Greek-letter sororities.
