Mr. Purple

$$$$(212) 237-1790
Hours:WEDNESDAY12:00PM to 4:00AM

Mr. Purple is the restaurant/bar on top of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. They do lunch, brunch, and dinner, and there are two terraces where you can sit outside. There’s also a little pool. You probably aren’t going to swim in it, but it’s nice to know that you could. This place isn’t as cheesy as a lot of the rooftop bars you see out there, but it does get crowded. So, unless you come early, you might have some trouble at the door.

A.R.T. Nomad

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.

Public Hotel

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.

Good Story Rooftop Lounge

Good Story is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Soho hotel, and, as far as rooftop bars go, it’s a pretty pleasant place to hang with a group downtown.
