Castell Rooftop is perfect for any type of drinking situation that you can put on your corporate card. It’s at the top of the AC Hotel, and it’s a somewhat upscale cocktail lounge with big windows, nice banquette seating, and an outdoor area with booths and a view of Midtown. Cocktails here can get into the $20 range, but not a lot of people know about this place, so it’s usually pretty easy to get into.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This place is, however, insanely expensive.
Suggested by our writers
A.R.T. 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.
The Press Lounge
The Press Lounge is a sleek rooftop in Hell’s Kitchen. It might be a little corporate/cheesy, but the views are top-notch.
