A rooftop bar at a hotel with great views sounds like the kind of place that reaches capacity while you’re still ordering brunch. But that’s not the case with this spot at the top of the Boro Hotel in Long Island City. It’s on the small side - there are just a few couches, tables, and counter seats looking out over LIC and Manhattan - but it rarely gets packed, and it’s a nice spot for a cocktail. We also like Beebe’s (the restaurant on the ground floor), so keep them both in mind for a one-two punch with a date or small group.
