The Heights is the rooftop bar at the Arlo Nomad, but it isn’t the sort of place where you have to buy a bottle or know a DJ. It’s really just a plain Midtown rooftop with some nice views and a few couches where you can sit and drink a cocktail that’s named after a neighborhood ending in “Heights” (Prospect, Morningside, etc.). Stop by for some drinks the next time you’re seeing something at Madison Square Garden. When the weather is nice, this is actually one of the better bar options in the area.
