The Roost is a coffee shop in Alphabet City that also happens to have a full bar hidden in the back. The bar doesn’t open until 4pm on weekdays, however, so it shouldn’t be too distracting if you’re trying to sit and finish some work. Overall, this is a nice, comfortable space, and it’s definitely cooler than your average coffee shop. So stop by in the daytime if you want to hang out on a couch or a stool while you use their free wifi.
