Hotel Hugo is in the relatively quiet area between the West Village and Tribeca, and it has two rooftop bars: Bar Hugo and Azul. Bar Hugo looks more-or-less like your typical upscale hotel rooftop, but Azul is vaguely Cuban-themed. You aren’t going to drink too much and suddenly think you’re in Havana, but they do have some fun, colorful decor as well as a few tropical cocktails. Think of this place as a slightly less sceney alternative to Le Bain, and get drinks here the next time you want a view across the Hudson.

Conceived in the spirit of Little Owl, this is a tiny West Village restaurant perfectly engineered for surveying action while you eat. Dinner is generally better than brunch, but it's a nice place to dine any time of day.

The Heights is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Nomad, and it’s pretty low-key for how nice the views are. Stop by for a drink before a show at MSG.
Public is a hotel on the LES where you can go and pretend you’re in the Meatpacking District. There’s both a nice lobby bar and a busy rooftop there.
