Terrace at SixtyFive
While not technically a rooftop, SixtyFive, the swanky (and pricey) cocktail bar adjacent to the newly revamped Rainbow Room in Rock Center, just opened up their stunning outdoor terrace, the first time in 80 years that guests can sip on cocktails alfresco 65 floors up.
The View: Hudson River, Empire State Building, New York Harbor, Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower, East River, George Washington Bridge, Central Park and when it's clear, all the way up to Tarrytown and down to Staten Island.
What to Order: Signature cocktails here start at $20, so bring your wallet. Try the new Rhythm &..., a saketini made with junmai sake, housemade blueberry syrup and lavender bitters.
Insider Tip: Walk-ins only.
