Soak up the scenery and the creative cocktails at these cool new rooftop bars.

The Jane Rooftop, Manhattan (Downtown)

18 of 17

Trendy hotelier Sean MacPherson’s bohemian cocktail den has been a magnet for after-hours scenesters since it opened inside the Jane Hotel in 2008 (do the Olsen twins go anywhere else?). The 2014 opening of the brick-clad terrace—once RuPaul’s crash pad—to the public has added a stylish day crowd to the mix. Expect the same clubby décor (Parisian rug, wall-to-wall oak bar) inside the octagonal barroom tower to go with plush red couches outdoors. The rooftop is the perfect perch for watching the sun take its leave while drinking the aptly named West Street Sunset, a mix of tequila, blackberry brandy, and orange bitters. Just be sure to call ahead: it’s reservation only.
