Roundup of NYC Rooftop Bars Bottoms up — up on the roof

NYC rooftop bars are the place to be and Archer is happy to suggest a few favorites.

Whichever you decide to frequent, we wish you well-concocted cocktails, beautiful weather, pleasant company and views worth toasting.



Spyglass Rooftop Bar Unforgettable Empire views

On the 22nd floor of West 38th Street’s Archer Hotel, Spyglass® Rooftop Bar mixologists serve up distinctive signature cocktails, plus a selection of wines, beers and delicious shareables.

And then there’s the stunning view — the Empire State Building rising up from midtown Manhattan. Inside or out, the approachable, chic atmosphere and attentive staff bring the NYC rooftop bar experience into clear focus.
