NYCReview

The Lower East Side has no shortage of bars - day-drinking spots, speakeasies, places to dance, and almost every other type of bar you can think of. What it doesn’t have a lot of, though, is outdoor drinking options. So the next time someone recommends Hotel Chantelle, you should remember Make Believe - a tropical-themed cocktail bar on the roof of the Sixty Hotel in LES with two outdoor terraces. It tends to reach capacity pretty early on weekends, so we recommend making a reservation when you want to drink a matcha or sake cocktail in a pink booth.
