ROOFTOP BARS: Rooftops are kind of a thing here. You can watch films on rooftops, see art on rooftops, but most important, you can drink fine wine, fancy cocktails and pints of artisanal lager at one of New York’s many rooftop bars. Head to Eataly’s La Birreria for gorgeous views of the Flatiron (Building and District) to accompany your bevvie of choice. The Cabanas at The Maritime Hotel serves rooftop drinks with a Mediterranean flavour. For stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, you can hop over the river to Brooklyn’s Williamburg neighbourhood to grab a beer at Berry Park or a frozen margarita on Night of Joy's pretty rooftop terrace.
