The holidays may be over, but there’s still plenty to see and do around New York City to kick off the new year with a bang. Make the most of your trip to Manhattan with our Big Apple winter bucket list.
Whether you’re looking for quintessential cold-weather experiences, trendy restaurants or an inviting place to warm up, these spots are worthy of braving the polar vortex.
Where to Drink
Escape the freezing streets of New York and soak up incredible views at one of the city’s winterized rooftop bars — an unexpected perk of Manhattan during colder months.
Crowning historic Beekman Tower, Ophelia Lounge’s swanky rooftop is one of our favorite places for libations during winter — the glass greenhouse makes you feel like you’re in a snow globe. Admire the glittering ambiance while you sip from expertly mixed cocktails like White Lightning, a warming tipple made with Manhattan Moonshine Whiskey, lychee liqueur, Cointreau, wormwood bitters and rambutan.
