    Specialty drinks are $15, but worth it. W/ names like The Tempest and Tequila Mockingbird, how can you not order them? Service was slow, but I went after work on a Fri. If you can sit outside, do it.

    Really amazing decor! There’s an outdoor patio as well as a green house. The drinks are on the pricey side but good. TJ is amazing!

    The enclosed greenhouse and the outdoor terrace are both ideal perches for sipping luxurious $15 cocktails and enjoying the multimillion-dollar view of midtown’s soaring skyscrapers.

    This rooftop is one of the most romantic spots in the city. We’re especially fond of their literary-themed drinks like the Tequila Mockingird or Jackie Collins.

    Great cozy bar atop the Library Hotel. Check out the terrace in warmer weather. The Complicated Kindness cocktail 🍹 is nice with scotch and lemon and a wine topper.

    Good small rooftop bar near Grand Central that is good for taking out of town guests staying around Times Square.

    Great lounge in the heart of midtown. The atmosphere is cute and they have a fireplace. Though be warned they only offer a small selection of overpriced bites.

    Great little rooftop bar above the Library hotel that we came across. Rather quiet on a winter Sunday afternoon, which was perfect.

    A great spot if you're looking for somewhere relatively quiet to meet for drinks, but also want a cool atmosphere.

    For a rooftop bar the space is ok but the decor is average and the drinks are not cheap!
