Best Summer 2021 Rooftops in NYC: What to Order to Drink?
Live every hour like it’s happy hour. We kicked off the night with a round of cocktail including the Georgica, a gin cocktail with kiwi purée, the Cooper’s, a vodka cocktail with strawberry purée and the Sunset, a mezcal cocktail with orange liqueur and a dash of habanero. Our favorite was the Cooper’s, but if you like your drinks with some heat, go for the Sunset. It’s hot girl summer and girls just wanna have cocktails.
It’s not only happy hour, it’s also wine o’clock. Next we sipped on the Wolffer Estate Chardonnay. Seriously, this is one of the best summer 2021 rooftops in NYC with great wine and cocktails.
Best Summer 2021 Rooftops in NYC: What to Order for Dinner?
We recommend starting with the Seasonal Picnic Tasting Board. The domestic cheese, cured meats and fruit paired nicely with our cocktails.
Cashew see I’m nuts about this place? We also ordered the Homemade Spicy Cashews. These nuts are unbelievable. They were flavorful with just enough heat. Highly recommend ordering them along with the Picnic Tasting Board. They go well together for the first course.
Pretty fly for a fungi. We also ordered the Traditional Margherita Pinsa and the Wild Mushroom Pinsa. If your party is a mix of veggie pizza lovers and meat lovers, save some of the cured meats from the Picnic Tasting Board and use them as additional Pinsa toppings.
Our favorite was the Wild Mushroom. IT was topped with fresh ricotta and drizzled with truffle oil. Everyday I’m trufflin’. Both Pinsas paired nicely with the Wolffer Chardonnay.
I’m not afraid to take a swing and miss. Sandbar also features lifeguard chairs and four swings made from reclaimed wine barrels. Sandbar is one of the best summer 2021 rooftops in NYC and you can experience a beach escape without leaving the city. Simultaneously, you can soak up nearly 360-degree views of the city. Please excuse my resting beach face.
I got 99 problems but a beach ain’t one! Stop by Sandbar in Chelsea for a handshake in the Hamptons without having to leave city. Keep in mind that time limits apply to reservations. If your table isn’t booked, you can stay longer than the allotted time. The hostess will give you a polite reminder. You can also check out our Outdoor Dining section for more recommendations.
