Penthouse 808 – Thrillist

Like brunching, rooftop drinking in NYC is competitive. Sky-high bars with higher prices are invariably packed, and you’ll have to contend with long lines, snap-happy tourists, and weather. But whether you’ve been here for a lifetime or just passing through, high-altitude imbibing will call out to you, too. These are the best places to sip or swig in the great updoors.
